Hannover 96 v Hertha Berlin Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 4th October 2013

Hannover 96 head into this game on friday night having had a decent start to their new season and after seven games played they currently occupy a very impressive 4th place in the league table although Manager Mirko Slomka will be demanding to see a bit more effort from his players in this game having seen his side lost two of their last three matches.

Hertha Berlin head into the game having also had a good start to their new campaign and currently sit just one place below their hosts in 5th position of the league table but their form away from home is hardly impressive with just three victories since 2011 and Jos Luhukay’s side would need to be at their very best on friday night to see that statistic change in my opinion.

Hertha Berlin: L L D L W

Hannover 96 have a slight advantage on the recent form statistics having won two of their last five matches played. Hertha Berlin have managed just one victory in their last five played.

Both clubs have suffered three defeats each also during this period, although two of those for Hannover 96 was against current defending Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich.

Hannover 96 v Hertha Berlin Match Betting Odds Market.

Hannover 96 have a decent record when playing at home and will look at this game as a real opportunity to protect their 4th place position from sides below them, so I can understand why the online bookmakers have the hosts priced up as the clear favourites to win this game on friday night with odds of 7/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw could be worth covering here as there really is not much seperating the two sides in the league table and this is currently available at a best price of 9/4 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers).

Hertha Berlin have only managed three victories away from home since 2011 and with one of their main strikers unavailable due to injury it does look unlikely they will change those statistics in this game and their current best price of 13/5 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) pretty much suggests that.

Hannover 96 v Hertha Berlin Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I really like the look of Hannover 96 for this game as they do have a very good record when playing at the HDI Arena and with their oppenents having only managed three victories since 2011 and missing one of their main strikers for this game, everything suggests a home win is on the cards.

The goal stats suggest one or two goals to be scored and looking back at the recent meetings between the two sides, three of those previous five encounters have seen two or less goals scored so betting markets like Under 2.5 goals, Total Match Goals and Time of First Goal Scored could all provide some additional value here.

However for me Hannover 96 look a decent side this season and if they are to remain on course for a European place for next season then they must win their home games and at decent enough odds they are my clear choice for this one.
