Hannover are left hoping for a miracle in the second-half of the campaign and the six-pointer against Nuremberg might be the key for Thomas Doll this weekend. The game at HDI Arena witnesses two clubs that have been cut adrift of safety over the last few weeks. Nuremberg hold a one-point advantage over Hannover, who are at the bottom of the table. Both teams need in excess of five points in order to get to safety. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hannover have had a disappointing start to 2019 with two thumping defeats. The 5-1 loss against Borussia Dortmund towards the end of January has been followed up by a 3-0 loss against RB Leipzig.
Nuremberg were at the end of a 1-1 draw with Werder Bremen as the team picked up a crucial point last weekend. The club may also thank an exit from the DFB Pokal after a 1-0 loss against Hamburg in the midweek.
The reverse fixture witnessed Nuremberg picking up one of the two victories that they have achieved this season, as they beat Hannover 2-0 at home. Nuremberg travel to the HDI Arena for the first time since April 2017, when both teams were playing in the second division, and they suffered a 1-0 loss back then. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Hannover and Nuremberg have both been struggling for any kind of a positive factor in the 2018-19 Bundesliga campaign. Both teams have only managed two wins apiece. Hannover may have home advantage, which has yielded both their victories, but Nuremberg will come into the match on the back of some close performances where they have secured results. The thrashing at the hands of Dortmund and RB Leipzig will severely dent the confidence of Hannover. Our preview would go with a draw.

Hannover win odds: 2.25
Nuremberg win odds: 3.25
Correct Score odds
A major factor behind the two teams struggling for results is an identical scoring and defending record this season. Both teams have conceded 44 goals while there is not much to separate them in terms of goals scored. Both defences continue to remain very poor while they lack confidence going forward. Our correct score prediction would opt for a goalless draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
These two teams may have played out several entertaining matches over the last few years, but there is a greater likelihood of witnessing a dull affair with little at both ends. Both teams have a lot to lose in this match and this will cause a lot of tension. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jonathas had a mediocre performance against RB Leipzig and he was able to come up with just one shot at goal. The Brazilian was quite good at winning aerial duels and our first goalscorer prediction would back Jonathas.
