Friday, 26.08.2016 at 18:30 o’clock

Top duel in round 3

Friday night at 6.30 PM the current first placed and third placed teams meet each other in the third round of the second German Bundesliga. After a messed up last season and the consequent relegation Hannover 96 has the goal to right back up again this year. Bochum will be an unpleasant opponent though, since they also started well into the season.

Current form Vfl Bochum

After a messed up Cup game against a fourth league team they want to keep going where they left off in league play before. So far they have scored four points in two games. They won their season opener against Union Berlin 2:1. In the second round Bochum had to be content with a draw against Karlsruher SC. Coach Gert Verbeek can almost use the whole roster. He only needs to forego Tobias Weis due to special leave and Patrick Fabian, who suffered an ACL tear.

Current form Hannover 96

So far Hannover 96 scored six points in two league games and barely survived the first round of the German Cup. Unfortunately the injured list is getting longer and longer. Hannover misses both strikers Sobiech and Benschop. After relegation they signed some good players though like Harnik for example. Harnik, Maier, Füllkrug and Barbacar Gueye are supposed to bring the needed power on offense. After two easy games Bochum will now be the first real test for Hannover.

Betting forecast

Hannover 96 started really well into the season and therefore comes with a lot of self-confidence to Bochum. It can be expected that Coach Stendel prepared his team well for the match. Hopefully Bochum won’t be too insecure after their loss in the Cup. The guests still are the slight favorite for the game. Our recommendation: Tip 2.
