Borussia is welcoming Hannover in round 19 of German Bundesliga.
Borussia is the top team in Germany, they play fast, attractive and attacking soccer and have some of the best fans in Europe. Borussia is riding 4 game winning streak and are really tough team to beat at home with 8 wins, 1 draw and 0 lost games and that is why they are holding first place in the Bundesliga. Paco Alcacer is Dortmund's top goal scorer with 12 goals in only 13 games which makes him one of the top strikers in Europe, and Marco Reus is following him with 11 goals. Dan-Axel and Reus are listed as doubtful while Akanji and Toprak will not play this game. Borussia is goal scoring machine this season with 45 goals in 18 matches and if they want to stay at the top they will need to keep it going.
Hannover is a complete disappointment this season, only 2 wins with 5 draws and 11 lost games, which is enough for second to last place and a fight to stay in German top league. Hannover’s defense is just tragic, they are getting ripped apart from every direction and are averaging 2 conceded goals per game. Bebou, Weydandt and Wood have each scored 3 goals. Maina, Hubers, Haraguchi, Fullkrug and Bebou will not play while Baze, Prib, Felipe, Elez and Asano are questionable. Hannover’s game is just terrible this season, starting from goalkeeping all the way to their strikers and a lot of things will need to change if they want to keep their Bundesliga status.
In this match I’m expecting good, enjoyable soccer with a lot of chances and goal scoring opportunities. Given the fact that Hannover is getting ripped apart defensively and their offense is just not clicking, I’m not giving them a lot of chances in this match.
