Borussia Monchengladbach v Hannover 96 Preview, Bundesliga, Saturday 17th August 2013

Borussia Monchengladbach were not given much chance of winning their opening game which was against last years treble winners Bayern Munich in which they lost 3-1 in what would of been Munich coach Pep Guardiola’s first game in charge. Borussia Monchengladbach were given slight hope just before half time when Dante scored an own goal which had bought the first half’s score to 2-1 but it was not to be after conceding two penalties in the 2nd half in which one was saved by the German number two keeper.

Hannover have had a good pre-season with beating Premiership side West Brom 2 goals to 1 and then kick started their season in style with an impressive win over Wolfsburg beating them 2 – 0 after the away team see red twice with both Klose and Arnold were sent off in different halves. It was a good result for Hannover with goals coming in both halves with Leon Andreasen and Szabolcs Huszti both getting their first goal of the season. Going down to 9 men was tough on Wolfsburg who must focus on their discipline if they are to qualify for Europe again at the end of the season.

Borussia Monchengladbach v Hannover 96 Team News

Borussia Monchengladbach Team News:

Coach Lucien Favre has also been busy in the transfer market this summer with 9 new arrivals, 6 of them on permanent deals with the more noticeable player being Brazilian Raffael who signed from Dynamo Kyiv in just under 5 mill. Borussia Monchengladbach have seen 6 players leave the club to pastures new as well as 2 others leaving on loan. Gladbach will need to up their game coming into this match as confidence must be on a low after losing last week and then also exiting the DFB Pokal in the first round on penalties to Darmstadt 98 who are regulars in 2.Bundesliga.

Hannover 96 Team News:

Some good news for Hannover as they secured the signature of Brazilian defender Marcelo who had joined from PSV Eindhoven on a four year deal. The 26 year old center back has been compared to a modern day central defender with excellent qualities with consistent tackling, physical presence and is able to play good football from the back. Marcelo was not the only arrival with 8 others joining from a selection of leagues, also with 3 of that number being promoted from within the teams reserves and under 19 side they have still only managed to spend less than 9 million and with 11 players leaving permanently or on loan it would of surely eased up the wage bill for the coming season.
