Mainz 05 vs Hannover 96 Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Promoted Hannover have a decent start to things on Saturday when they travel to Mainz, one of last season's relegation contenders to begin the Bundesliga season. Mainz only escaped the relegation playoff last term via a superior goal difference after losing on the final day. Hannover come into the league after finishing runner-up in Bundesliga2 last season. Both sides won their DFB Pokal matches ahead of this league opener. Mainz defeated LSK Hansa away 1-3. Yoshi Muto got them off and running after just 13 minutes but they were eventually pegged back 18 minutes later. They'd score a penalty through Daniel Brosinksi on the stroke of half time to give them the lead before Muto put the game to bed in the 60th minute with his second. Hannover won their match 2-6 at Bonner SC. They trailed 1-0 after 20 minutes, but they responded with two goals from Niclas Fulkrug and one by Martin Harnik before Bonner made it 2-3. However, Hannover pulled away with finishes by Kenan Karaman, Seb Maier, and Harnik again after the 90th minute mark. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Mainz have not lost any of their last five meetings with Hannover, stretching back to 2013. They have three wins in that run and two draws as well. The last time they met, Mainz won 0-1 away. In this fixture in August of 2016, Mainz got a 3-0 win against Hannover. Hannover are newly-promoted, but these sides are sometimes very dangerous. Against Mainz, they could spring an upset, especially as a new manager is bedding in to the team. A Hannover win, which is not likely, can be a good punt here at 14/5. Because Mainz are at evens, this is a good bet. You can also go with Mainz and a clean sheet, which could get you 12/5 odds. Either way, you improve your odds drastically.

Mainz 05 Preview

Mainz come into this season hoping that they can avoid the issues that plagued them last term. They have promoted Sandro Schwarz to take over as manager after managing the academy side, and it's hoped the 38 year old will push them forward back to a more comfortable position that they are used to. Goalkeeper Rene Adler, center back Abdou Diallo, and left winger Viktor Fischer are among the signings he's brought to the club.

Mainz 05 Team News

Goalkeeper Jannik Huth, center back Alexander Hack, left back Gatean Bussmann, defensive midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and left winger Gerrit Holtmann are all out with injuries for this match.

Hannover 96 Preview

Hannover gained promotion last season after a point on the final day ensured them of it. They have left Andre Breitenreiter in charge after he took over in March of this year, and they will have a big task to stay up this season in a tough and compact Bundesliga. They have signed a number of players in an attempt to try and stay up including goalkeeper Michael Esser, right back Julian Korb, and former Bayern Munich youth winger Yousef Emghames.

Hannover 96 Team News

Center back Salif Sane will be out of this match as he will be serving a suspension for a red card. Left back Miiko Albornoz and wingers Uffe Bech and Noah Bazee are all out with injuries.
