Stuttgart hosts Hannover 96
Stuttgart hosts Hannover 96 in a match from the 30th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s see what’s going on with these two teams.
Stuttgart is currently 9th in the Bundesliga standings with 38 points. They had some difficult times this season, but luckily they managed to improve and now they are safe from relegation. A midtable finish at this place would be a solid achievement for Stuttgart, taking into account the team’s potential and ambitions at the moment.
Right now Stuttgart has a record of 11 wins, 5 draws and 13 defeats. In their last five games, they Won twice, made two draws and suffered one defeat – against Borussia Dortmund in the last round. It was a bad day for Stuttgart at the Signal Iduna Park, losing the game with 0-3.
Hannover 96, on the other hand, is 13th in the standings with 35 points. They are also pretty safe from relegation, so the season is successful for them as well.
So far Hannover has a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 12 losses. In their last five games they won once – against Werder in the previous round, but before this, they were in a bad run of four consecutive defeats.
We shall say that both teams look pretty even in terms of quality at the moment. It’s just 3 points that separate them in the league standings, so you can see that the difference is not big. Of course, Stuttgart has the home ground advantage here, which could be an important factor in the match.
If Stuttgart wins this game, they could move 8th in the standings, overtaking Borussia M’gladbach. Hannover 96 could also jump with few positions in the standings, being just a point behind Hertha, Augsburg and Werder Bremen. So, who do you got here?
