Hannover 96 v RB Leipzig: Visitors looking to cut gap to 3rd

10:15, 29 Jan 2019

Hannover 96 will play host to RB Leipzig, and things might look markedly different from they were the last time the teams went toe to toe.

When RB played host, the visitors managed to force the two teams to play out a thrilling game, with the encounter ending as a 3-2 victory for the hosts. This time, Hannover have slunk too low in the standings, while RB have managed to hold on to the fourth position. Indeed, Leipzig are now on 31 points, which is 5 points adrift of 3rd placed Borussia Monchengladbach. They have in the last few years become a giant of consistency in the Bundesliga and will do well to hold on to that mantle.

Hannover 96 are sat at the very floor of the league, and are only above Nurnberg by goal difference, with both teams tied at 11 points. This is a matchup between polar opposites, and there might not be much of a match.
