Match Preview

Hannover 96 welcome VfL Wolfsburg to the HDI-Arena for a second Niedersachsen-Derby in less than a fortnight, after Wolfsburg triumphed 2-0 in the DFB-Pokal here – their fourth win in four-consecutive competitive matches at this venue, scoring ten goals and conceding just once.
With only six points after ten fixtures, the hosts have recorded their worst start to a Bundesliga season for 30 years. Hannover have now won just three of their last 21 top-flight matches (W3, D4, L14), however each of those victories came at home.
The home side have also scored at least one goal in eight of their ten Bundesliga games this campaign, but their defence has left a lot to be desired. With 21 goals conceded – an average of 2.1 per match – it’s the joint-third worst in the league.
Wolfsburg haven’t impressed lately either, winning only one of their last eight league fixtures (W1, D3, L4). Conceding first appears to have a direct influence on the visitors’ ability to get points on the board, with Wolfsburg picking up just five combined in the seven league games they conceded the opener, while registering seven in the three games they didn’t.
Players to watchIhlas Bebou scored two of Hannover’s last three Bundesliga goals. Meanwhile Wout Weghorst got Wolfsburg’s second to clinch the win in that DFB-Pokal clash – he has also scored two goals in his last three Bundesliga outings.
Stat attack: Hannover have lost all six of their Bundesliga matches where they have conceded the opener, but they are yet to lose when they score first.
In Wolfsburg’s Bundesliga games so far, opposing teams have recorded 112 combined attempts on goal (an average of 11.2 per match) – the fourth-lowest number in the league.
Five of the last six H2Hs between Hannover and Wolfsburg have produced under 2.5 goals, with only one team scoring in four.
