VfL Osnabruck and Hannover 96 meet in a match in the 27th round of the 2. Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, at 12:00, at Stadion an der Bremer Bruck, without spectators.
In the previous round, Hannover confirmed that it is one of the strongest teams in the 2. Bundesliga in terms of travel. Kenan Kocak’s team won in the non-appearance score on the field of Nurnberg, the 15th ranked in the second league. Hannover ranks 3rd in the travel rankings. However, they only rank 11th in the overall standings, and this is obviously due to their home games, where Hannover is penultimate in the 2. Bundesliga.
Osnabruck, the team on the 13th place, comes to this duel after the draw obtained with great luck on the field of Arminia Bielefeld, the leader of the 2. Bundesliga. The hosts of that game led from the 17th minute, but Daniel Thioune’s students managed to equalize in the last minute of extra time, through the striker Marcos Alvarez.
-The two teams have met 12 times so far in official competitions;
-Hannover dominates in this respect, with 7 victories and one defeat;
-In the direct disputes at Osnabruk, Hannover is undefeated, with 5 wins and a draw;
-In 8 of the 12 direct duels, less than 2.5 goals were scored;
Osnabruk is a decent team at home, where they defeated two top 3 teams, Hamburg (2-1) and Stuttgart (1-0). Even so, this time I receive a visit from a top team in terms of travel. We rely on a solid performance from the guests, which should exceed the average of 4.5 corners obtained per away match.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1,63
