Borussia Dortmund would be looking to keep up their 6 points gap over Bayern Munich when they host struggling Hannover 96 in this game.
The Bundesliga leaders edge out a close contest 1-0 away at Leipzig the last time out to keep themselves firmly in control of the Bundesliga race.
That win was their 4th consecutive win. They tend to do even better when they play at home and their fans would be confident that they can record another win a here and keep themselves at the forefront of the title race.
Hannover, on the other hand, head to this game after suffering yet another 1-0 home loss at the hands of Werder Bremen.
They have managed to collect just 11 points from 18 games this season and come here in the relegation zone. Their current form doesn’t seem to make a case that they can cause an upset, but they were good enough to hold Dortmund to a draw at home in the reverse fixture and they would be looking to do that here as well.
