Hannover were able to get a much-needed Bundesliga victory during the weekend, but it does not leave the team with much of a hope about avoiding relegation. Thomas Doll may have achieved this victory in only his second match in charge of the team, but Hannover are unlikely to get many opportunities of playing against 10 men of a relegation rival. Hoffenheim have not been great over the last few months, but the team has enough quality across the pitch to get a home victory. Our preview would pick a win for Hoffenheim.

Hoffenheim vs Hannover draw odds: 6.00
Hannover win odds: 8.50
Correct Score odds
Hoffenheim have a lot of goals among them. Kramaric has been the leading scorer for the team but the likes of Joelinton and Belfodil have also played an integral part in helping Hoffenheim pick up 41 league goals so far. Hoffenheim have managed less than half this figure and they are quite poor going forward but Hoffenheim’s defence will present several opportunities for the team. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for Hoffenheim.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last two games between Hoffenheim and Hannover have finished with a 3-1 score. Even though the score is unlikely to be repeated for a third consecutive match, both teams have the potential to score with Hoffenheim having the greater threat of rules due to players like Kramaric dominating the line-up. Our total goals prediction would pick over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Andrej Kramaric has been able to come up with nine goals so far this season. Even though his performance against Borussia Dortmund was not up to the mark, the 27-year-old will once again be the key player for Hoffenheim. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Kramaric.
