Hannover vs Stuttgart

Stuttgart will be slightly worried to learn that they will have to make this road trip. After all, they have yet to bank in a point on their away travels.

They have lost six away matches in a row so far, a stark contrast to their home form where they have five wins and a draw.

Stuttgart's 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund last Friday came at a cost as attackers Daniel Ginczek and Chadrac Akolo both picked up injuries that rule them out this trip.

Simon Terodde and Josip Brekalo - the match-winner in the Dortmund game - will be on standby mode.

At the other camp, fit-again defenders Waldemar Anton and Julian Korb could also earn recalls as eighth-placed Hannover seek to snap a two-game losing streak, but in-form striker Jonathas misses out and is unlikely to play again this year after suffering a thigh injury in training.

Hannover went on a six-game unbeaten run at the start of the season, but have since lost four of their subsequent six league outings.

Victory would lift Stuttgart above Hannover in the standings for the first time this term.

Match Stats:

  • Hannover 1-1 Stuttgart
  • Shots: 11-13
  • Possession: 46%-54%
  • Corner kicks: 4-5

Hannover have struggled of late but had a glorious early chance when Martin Harnik was unmarked in front of goal, but he got his feet in a tangle and the opportunity went begging. They were punished for that midway through the half when Takuma Asano pounced on the rebound after Philipp Tschauner was unable to hold Christian Gentner's long-range shot.

The home team were much improved after the break, but aside from a Salif Sane shot that hit the post, they had difficulty creating any clear openings. However, their pressure eventually paid off when Niclas F├╝llkrug lashed in a penalty after Matthias Ostrzolek was felled by Benjamin Pavard. Dennis Aogo should have restored Stuttgart's lead almost instantly, but blazed over from close range and leave both clubs with a point.
