Hannover 96 Preview – Now their safety is all but sealed can Hannover get back to winning ways?

In many ways the end of the season cannot come quick enough for Hannover. Nine points clear of the relegation zone with their rivals having three games left, allied with a vastly superior goal difference means there is no chance they will be playing in the third tier of German football next season. You tend to think they will just be looking for the campaign to end as a result.

However, due to their deplorable form over the last couple of months, head coach Kenan Kocak will be looking for a positive end to the season starting with this home game. Hannover have four matches of their own left to play and will be attempting to climb to as high a finishing position as possible.

Darmstadt win/Over 2.5 goals

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 5 May)

Their last 10 games have seen one win, five defeats and four draws. The solitary victory came against Jahn Regensburg who remain involved in the battle to avoid the drop. Their home form has been particularly poor with just two wins in their last eight and that’s been the reason they have fallen right out of contention for promotion this season.

Where Hannover don’t struggle is in front of goal. Their return of 49 goals so far is better than five of the current top nine, so it implies the issues is at the other end. No clean sheets in their last nine backs this up.

Darmstadt Preview – Will the goals of Dursun lead Darmstadt to an away victory?

A mid-table finish is near enough locked in for Darmstadt who are currently 10th – nine points away from the top three and 12 points clear of the bottom three. It’s been a solid season for the club and Markus Anfang will be happy with how his first full season has went since joining the club last summer.

He knows there is improvement, though, as the club narrowly missed out on promotion last season, finishing in fifth spot and just three points off the playoff spot. That will be the level they want to be competing at again next season.

It’s been a strong spell of late for Anfang and his players who come into this game having lost just one of their last eight and looking for a sixth win in their last nine.

Key to their chances going forward and at a push for promotion next season will be the goals of Serdar Dursun. The striker has 21 goals in the league this season, his best ever return. It’s not surprise to see his team’s fortunes improve as his own form has been better. Dursun has 11 goals in his last eight games.

Hannover 96 vs Darmstadt Betting Advice

This game has very little riding on it but it is a chance for Hannover to begin a winning run before the end of the season whilst Darmstadt will be hoping to continue their good form and attempt to finish as high in the table as they can.

When these teams met back in January it was Hannover who were going best but things have changed dramatically and since they defeated Darmstadt 2-1 they have won just four of their next 16.

Key Facts – Hannover 96 vs Darmstadt Betting Tip

  • Once in contention for promotion, Hannover have managed just one win in their last 10
  • Darmstadt striker Serdar Dursun is the league’s joint top scorer with 21 goals
  • The teams met back in January and it was Hannover who won 2-1

I’m taking the visitors to get revenge for the defeat earlier in the season and continue their strong end to the campaign. Hannover have been terrible of late and motivation and confidence are sure to be an issue.
