There is no explaining why Borussia Dortmund have been so poor in the Bundesliga this season and so good in Europe but Jurgen Klopps men have taken just seven points from eight games and are in real danger of missing out on the Champions League football next season if they dont right the ship soon. Marco Reus and Aubeymang both got on the scoresheet wednesday night against galatasaray and Shinji Kagawa was truly excellent through the center. Matt Hummels has returned to the center of the defence so in theory the team should stop leaking soft goals.
Hannover had a great start to the season winning two of their first three but they have only won one of the next six and only taken a point in one of those other five losing four of the last five. Hannover have no real superstar in their squad but do work hard for each other and will go to Dortmund tomorrow and give it everything they have. Joselu the young spaniard is the biggest threat they have up front and Kyiotake will provide midfield inspiration but overall i am not sure how Hannover get anything from this game unless Borussia Dortmund have another no show performance.
I've been looking at this game all week and i really want to pick Hannover to get something from the game but I just dont see how Borussia Dortmund can continue to be this bad so I am going to go against my gut and take Borussia Dortmund over 1 goal in the first half. Dortmund started fast in the European Cup midweek it set the pace for the rest of the game and I think they will try a similar tactic on Saturday. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
