Hannover prepare to host Hertha Berlin at the HDI Arena this weekend hoping to jump out of the bottom three. Hannover are just one point behind Nuremberg in the 15th place, but they have been returned with the prospect of relegation throughout the campaign. Hertha Berlin are just three points away from making it into the top six. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hannover could not build on the home win over Wolfsburg after the team lost 4-1 against Borussia Mönchengladbach last weekend. Hannover have come up with some gritty and hard-working performances of late.
Hertha Berlin came back from two goals down – twice in the match – to secure a 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim during the weekend. The last league victory for Hertha Berlin was back towards the end of September when they beat Bayern Munich.
The recent meeting between these two teams took place at the HDI Arena with Hannover getting a 3-1 success. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Hannover and Hertha Berlin have been quite poor in recent weeks. Since the epic victory over Bayern Munich in September, Hertha Berlin have been able to get the better of lower league Darmstadt 98 in the DFB Pokal. Meanwhile, Hannover are appearing as favourites for relegation with the team unable to convert the hard work into victories. The two teams are quite low on confidence and the best choice would be to back a draw, according to our preview.

Hannover win odds: 2.70
Hertha Berlin win odds: 2.60
Correct Score odds
The two teams have been poor going forward. Hannover have especially been poor in the home matches with just seven goals in the last five games at the HDI Arena. Hertha Berlin are almost on a similar run when it comes to away goals, as their overall goal record has been severely inflated by the three-goal haul against Hoffenheim. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in four out of the last five away games for Hertha Berlin, but this match could be at the other end of the scale with both teams lacking enough confidence to get a couple of goals under their belt. Even though Hertha Berlin and Hannover are capable of scoring in this match, it may not be sufficient to eliminate this game into the status of an entertainer. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Ihlas Bebou has been a key player for Hannover in recent matches at the HDI Arena. In his absence due to an injury, striker Niclas Füllkrug becomes key for Andre Breitenreiter’s team. Even though both of his league goals this season have been away from home, our first goalscorer prediction would back Niclas Füllkrug.
