Bayern Munich – Hannover
Bayern are leaders in the Bundesliga, but in the last round they suffered their first defeat since the return of Jupp Heynckes. The champions were beaten during the visit to Borussia M’gladbach, so now their lead in front of RB Leipzig was reduced to just three points. You can be sure that now Bayern would want to make up for this defeat and Hannover 96 are the team they have to beat.
Hannover 96 are 10th in the Bundesliga standings with 19 points won so far. They have a record of five wins, four draws and four defeats. In their last three matches they won just one point – during the draw with Stuttgart. Before that they lost twice against RB Leipzig and Werder. They are not in a good form right now, so it’d be really difficult for them against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the match in Munich.
Bayern are without the injured Arjen Robben, Thiago and Manuel Neuer. Jupp Heynckes also have problems with Juan Bernat, James Rodriguez, David Alaba, Rafinha and Thomas Muller, who are all doubtful for the match. The good news for the Bavarians come from the successful recovery of the French veteran Franck Ribery. How you could see, Jupp Heynckes has a lot of problems to deal with before the next game.
Meanwhile Hannover is without the injured Felipe and Edgar Prib, while Martin Harnik, Pirmin Schwegier, Waldemar and Salif Sane are all doubtful for the next game. Noah-Joel Sarenren-Bazee is ready to come back for the away team, which is good news for Hannover.
