Match : Hoffenheim vs Hannover 96 Competition : Germany – Bundesliga Time / Date : 21:30h / 27 April 2018 Venue : Rhein-Neckar-Arena
Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their last eight Bundesliga matches and sit only two points behind the Champions League spots as a result. They are full of confidence in their pursuit of a fourth straight home win after a 5-2 victory at direct rivals Leipzig last weekend.
Hannover have only picked up four points from their last eight Bundesliga matches and have struggled with their balance recently. After a strong start to the season, they should be all but safe from relegation, but the play-off spot is only six points away with three matches to be played.
