We are heading to the HDI-Arena in Hannover, where Hannover 96 hosts Schalke 04 in a match from the 27th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s examine this clash in our free soccer predictions today.
Things are going very bad for Hannover 96 so far. The team is in the relegation zone of the standings, being 17th with 14 points won. Right now Hannover are 6 points behind the 16th Stuttgart, which is not good at all.
Since the beginning of the season, Hannover have a very average record of 3 wins, 5 draws and 18 losses. In their last five games Thomas Doll’s boys are absolutely terrible – five consecutive losses.
Nothing was different during Hannover’s last game, too, when Doll’s boys visited Augsburg and suffered a 1-3 loss. The game actually started well for the visitors, because Hendrik Weydandt opened the score for Hannover. Everything went wrong for Hannover after the halftime break, when Cordova, Schmid and Hahn brought Augsburg to the win.
In the same time Schalke 04 are chasing their first win since the new manager Huub Stevens replaced the sacked Domenico Tedesco. Stevens’ time in Gelsenkirchen started with a loss, because in his debut Schalke suffered a 0-1 loss at home against RB Leipzig.
Cleary things are not going well for the Royal Blues. Right now Schalke are in a run of four consecutive losses in the league. The club is 15th in the league, being just 3 points above the 16th Stuttgart and the relegation playoff zone.
Last season Schalke finished 2nd in the league and qualified for the Champions League, but now they are close to relegation. It’s really strange what happened to them for just one year of time.
