Updated: May 7, 2014

Match Date: 10 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: AWD Arena


Die Roten shall grab the opportunity to enter into Bundesliga’s top 10 via securing a win against SC Freiburg.


Hannover’s possibility of being one of the top-flight league’s elites is still, possible. Only a 2-point lead separates them from Hertha Berlin. They can steal the limelight if they want to. However, they should not forget that their rank improvement also depend on the result of Hertha Berlin’s upcoming match, which is pitted against the Bundesliga runner-up, Borussia Dortmund.


Hannover’s present team form is a competitive one. They have only lost twice in their last 6 matches. Three (3) of those clashes resulted in well-deserved victories, while one of their games ended in a stalemate.


However, SC Freiburg shares a similar team form. This serves as a warning to Hannover. The club has no excuse to fall into a lackluster performance for Freiburg is very much capable of causing an upset or a draw.
The likelihood that Hannover will enter the top 10 is high due to the difficulty of Hertha Berlin’s upcoming match. This is not to underestimate the capital club. But then again, a reality check clearly shows that the all-time online betting favorite,  Dortmund has the upper-hand. As for Die Roten, it will be a great dismay if they crumble in SC Freiburg’s hands. A great opportunity such as this one, may not come again. Hannover cannot afford to wait any longer. They should take advantage of this once in a lifetime chance.


Prediction: Hannover or draw
