The HDI Arena is the location for Hannover’s game against Borussia Dortmund this weekend. The Friday night match witnesses a Hannover team with hope of finishing in the top 10 places of the Bundesliga. Borussia Dortmund have been able to make substantial improvements to the squad during the summer and the arrival of Lucien Favre has produced a positive impact.

Betting Tips for the game
Hannover were able to secure only a draw against Werder Bremen in the opening game of the season. The club were able to secure a mammoth 6-0 win over Karlsruher in the DFB Pokal.
Borussia Dortmund began the new season in a strong fashion after beating RB Leipzig 4-1 at home. This has already raised expectations for a much better season from Dortmund.
The recent game between Dortmund and Hannover produced a 1-0 victory for the former at the Signal Iduna Park. Hannover, though, had secured in impressive 4-2 win over Dortmund when these two teams last met each other at HDI Arena. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Borussia Dortmund.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Borussia Dortmund win at 1.57[/bet_tip_now]
Hannover are given odds of 5.50, which is rather attractive considering the big win they had over Dortmund at the HDI Arena last season. However, Hannover’s defence has weakened over the summer while Dortmund have improved on a number of fronts. The win over RB Leipzig was a statement of intent from Dortmund, who are planning to make a push for the title challenge once again. Our preview would choose a win for Dortmund.

Correct Score odds
The large contingent of attacking players at the disposal of Favre makes Dortmund a force going forward. Last season, the club were highly inconsistent but those days do appear behind them. Hannover have made several offensive signings in the summer and it may take a while before the club manages to hit a sweet spot. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Dortmund 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The matches between Dortmund and Hannover – especially at the HDI Arena – are rather entertaining with goals galore. It is only when these two teams meet each other at the Signal Iduna Park that games tend to be tight matches. Five out of the last six meetings at the HDI Arena has produced more than 2.5 goals, which would be my pick in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Marco Reus was at his impressive best against RB Leipzig and he was able to get a goal to his credit. The striker made at least three key passes aside from the goal. His record against Hannover is not great with only five goals in 13 Bundesliga matches, but our first goalscorer prediction would back Reus to end his league drought – which goes back to the 2013-14 season – against Hannover.
