More Friday night football from the Bundesliga where we have hit five of the six Friday night games this season. This match up is quite interesting on paper, while Hannover are sixth they are only five points ahead of Hertha who lie in thriteenth currently. Hertha have a good squad with ex Chelsea striker Saloman Kalou being the key man and top scorer for Hertha with four goals in eight games so far this term. Kalou will be the focal point of most of Hertha's attacks although Hertha have a great home record with three wins in four, including a win over high flying Wolsburg.
Hannover amazingly are sixth in the table and have won five games while only scoring seven goals this season. Hannover's success is obviously built on a terrific defence, the only problem seems to be playing away from home where Hannover have lost four of the last five. Hannover have failed to score in each of those losses and with only seven goals this season Hannover are looking for more from their strikeforce where Joselu , Sobiech and Brand have only three goals between them this season.

So many strong trends here its hard to get a read on what will actually happen. For me though Hertha look a solid bet at home , they have won their last three at home and have a stronger strikeforce. Its tough to bet against Hannover's defence but they just have not been the same team when away from home. Take Hertha in Friday night's Bundesliga action.
