Hannover 96 can keep an impressive run against SC Freiburg going tomorrow night (April 21st) with three points at the Badenova Stadion.
Mirko Slomka’s side have not tasted defeat at the hands of Thursday’s rivals in five games, winning the last three encounters.
Such statistics could make the 8/5 odds on an away win an attractive option for those looking to make football bets on a number of midweek fixtures.
The Reds have an added incentive to keep the run going as a win could see them move out of the Europa League qualification places and into the promised land of Champions League qualification. The AWD Arena outfit currently lie in fourth place in the Bundesliga, just one point behind third-placed Bayern Munich.
Both Hannover and Freiburg have been seen to tire in games this season. The home side have conceded 13 of their 44 goals in the last 15 mintues of games, while the visitors have let in 11 of their 40 goals during the same period.
Indeed, a second half-only table would see Hannover sitting in 15th, looking at relegation rather than European competition.
As such, the 11/4 price on exactly two goals being scored in the second half, which would see at £10 stake return £37.50, could look like a sensible option.
If Freiburg are to put their dismal run against their opponents to bed, then Papiss Demba Cisse is likely to be the man to provide the firepower up front.
The Senegalese hitman has hit 20 goals in 28 games this term, which puts him second in the scoring charts behind Bayern Munich’s Mario Gomez.
With bragging rights and personal glory up for grabs, the African could be incentivised to put on an impressive performance. Three goals could be enough to see the prolific front man top the Bundesliga goals list and can be backed at 19/4 with bwin to do just that by the end of the season.
While Cisse has been a revelation in attack for Robin Dutt’s side, Freiburg boast no other player with more than four goals to his name.
Hannover, by contrast, have been able to rely on a wider pool of goal scoring talent this year with Didier Ya Konan and Mohammed Abdellaoue leading the way.
The forwards, who have 12 and nine goals respectively, could be instrumental if the Reds are to achieve their Champions League ambitions.
