Augsburg lie in joint third and travel to Hannover to try to get a win that would take Augsburg into sole position of third for at least 24 hours. After a 4-0 home loss to Bayern Munich Augsburg will be looking to bounce back here against a Hannover team that have lost five of their last six. Augsburg started the season with five losses out of six away games but have won back to back away games in a five game stretch where they have won four games, the sole loss coming last weekend to Bayern. Amazingly Augsburg have yet to draw a game this season with eight wins and seven losses, so it has literally been all or nothing every week. Key men for Augsburg Altintip, Bobadilla and Durdic will be hoping that they can make it a third away win in a row here against a struggling Hannover side.
Where Hannover have really struggled in their last five is defensively, conceding thirteen goals in their last four games. That type of defence is impossible to overcome and while joselu and kiyotake will give hannover a chance up front I just dont think they have enough about them to consistantly win. Hannover have another strange stat with only two draws of their fifteen games.
Hard one to handicap here, personally I think Augsburg are the better side and should be favourites but i see more value here in the overs, Hannover have just been completely unable to defend in their last four an augsburg have shown an ability to find the net with the exception of Saturday against Bayern. Take the overs.
