Hannover v Hamburg Betting Tips & Preview – Friday 15th September 2017

Andre Breitenreiter’s Hannover square off against Markus Gisdol’s Hamburg at the HDI-Arena this Friday night for an intriguing German Bundesliga matchup. Both teams have made good starts to their league campaigns, but who will come out on top in Hannover in this one?

Having taken an impressive seven points from their opening three league matches, last season’s 2. Bundesliga runners-up head into Friday’s clash as the favourites to take all three points. However, Hamburg, who have six points to their name from their opening fixtures, will no doubt make a game of it in the HDI-Arena. This has all the makings of being a real ding-dong battle in Lower Saxony on Friday.

Top Tips

  • Hannover to Win -1 - 7/2 at Coral
  • Hannover to Win and Both Teams to Score - 19/5 at Ladbrokes

Analysis

Considering Hannover have just been promoted, they have been excellent so far. Despite only scoring three times in three Bundesliga games, they have put seven points on the board, occupying third place as a result. 96 beat Mainz 1-0 away from home in their opener before seeing off Schalke by the same scoreline at the HDI-Arena before the international break. Then at the weekend, Breitenreiter’s men drew 1-1 at Wolfsburg.

Gisdol’s Hamburg have also made a strong start to their campaign. The Red Shorts kicked off with a solid 1-0 home triumph over Augsburg. They then beat Cologne 3-1 on the road before losing 2-0 at home to Red Bull Leipzig last Friday night. Six points from a possible nine leaves them in a respectable seventh place after three games.

These two last went head-to-head back in April 2016 when Hamburg came out on top with a solid 3-0 away win. Hannover were relegated to the second tier at the end of the season. They did, however, win the reverse match in the Volksparkstadion in November 2015.

Having won two of their opening three, we fancy Hannover to seal another victory on Friday. This time, though, we believe it will be a more comfortable win for Die Roten. Check out Coral’s 7/2 for the home team to win -1. Hamburg, who netted three in their last away outing, should net in this one. Therefore, take a punt on the hosts to win and both teams to score, which you can get at 19/5 at Ladbrokes.

Other Bets

Hannover’s Austrian ace Martin Harnik has enjoyed a great start to his season in front of goal. The striker scored vital goals last year to help 96 to promotion, and he’s hit the ground running in the top tier this term.

Harnik, who’s netted four in five league and cup appearances already, is available at 2/1 with Betfred to score anytime on Friday.
