Hannover 96 vs. Bayern Munich Predictions, Tips, & Picks 10/23/11

Sunday afternoon wraps up the long weekend of Bundesliga scores, and we are back with our Bundesliga tips for the battle between two of the top sides in the country. We’re all set to make our Hannover 96 vs. Bayern Munich predictions and tips for arguably the biggest fixture of the weekend!
These two sides both had championship aspirations this season after falling flat last year and finishing in third and fourth. Hannover 96 has come quite a long ways since barely avoiding relegation in 2009-10 and being a mid level team in the Bundesliga table for basically a decade before it. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich just continues to dominate, as every single year, it is partaking in European competitions.

This year though, it is Munich that is truly dominating. In nine fixtures this year, the kings of German football have scored a whopping 25 goals, easily the most in the league. And, on top of that, they have only conceded a single strike, also better than anyone else by a solid five goals.

The only truly questionable result was the lifeless and scoreless draw at TSG Hoffenheim at the start of October. However, immediately after that fixture, Bayern turned around and smashed a more formidable foe, Hertha Berlin 4-0, their third win by at least four goals on the campaign.

Of course, it’s truly hard to argue with a side that hasn’t allowed a goal domestically since August 7th and that hasn’t given up a goal on the road all season long, but we are here to warn that Hannover has the team that could pull off one of the biggest upsets of the season.

Mohammed Abdellaoue has had a fantastic year for the Die Roten, as he already has six of the team’s 11 goals on the season. He is the only man to have scored more than once domestically on the season, and he is sure to be the focal point for the attack on Sunday as well.

Hannover has held its own in the Europa League this year, which has been a real accomplishment for this side. It is 1-1-1 in three fixtures, and it had to win a nervy playoff against Spanish side, Sevilla FC just to get into the competition.

Domestically, it has been a true bag of mixed results. A 3-2 win at home over Werder Bremen has to give a lot of hope that this upset is possible, as does a 2-1 win over last year’s champs, Borussia Dortmund. However, on the flip side, a draw at home against lowly Mainz and a questionable 2-0 loss at FC Cologne last week are results that are going to potentially haunt as well.

We aren’t ready to lay that goal and a half quite yet on the road with Bayern Munich even though it clearly has the more consistent side in this match. In fact, we’re even willing to go out on a limb and say that we think that it is Hannover that can take the three points in this match. Getting nearly 7 to 1 on the Bundesliga odds is a gift for a team at home that has some real potential, and we plan on taking full advantage of it.
