Leverkusen face Hannover in this 1. Bundesliga 2017/18 clash.

When is the match, and kick off time?

The match is on Saturday 12th May 2018, and kicks off at 2:30pm UK time.


Hannover will need to stay alert for attacking through balls, which are part of the Leverkusen attack. Luckily, they have shown that they can cope with those attacks competently. It would be wise for Leverkusen to play intricately and avoid taking too many shooting chances at range, as Hannover have an excellent record of defending those chances. Set pieces should be interesting in this game, as Hannover's strong attacking may be countered by Leverkusen's strong defence. Hannover have recovered many games recently after letting in early goals, which they might do again in this fixture. Leverkusen should be able to pick up some extra possession as they have performed better than Hannover in the air.

Leverkusen Vs Hannover Prediction

Leverkusen are the better of the two teams, and will be looking to dominate the game. This should result in a win for Leverkusen. Hannover will be looking to cause an upset, but they have a mountain to climb to do so. A bet of £10 would return £12.38 for a home win, £81.00 for a draw, and £145.00 for an away win.

This match is set to be a goal-fest and will be very entertaining to watch. Our prediction for this match is: Leverkusen 3-0 Hannover.
