RB Leipzig vs Hannover
KICK OFF: Saturday 15th Sept 2018 | 15:30 CET
Bundesliga wk3 | RED BULL ARENA
Do Leipzig have what it takes this season to overcome stubborn Hannover
Leipzig can be outstanding on their day, but Hannover’s form deserves respect. The home side won both fixtures last term but replicating the feat this season will be more of a challenge.
The hosts played to a 1 - 1 draw in their last match with newly promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf. Leipzig welcomed Timo Werner for the first time this season, and he should be available for this clash. The striker may take some time before finding his shooting boots. This match comes before Leipzig kicks off their Europa League campaign and they will want a morale-boosting win.
Hannover has two points so far, and they will be looking for more positive results. They drew blank with Dortmund on matchday two, which suggests they are a tough nut to crack. They are likely to avoid a third successive defeat at the hands of Leipzig.
Leipzig are not the threat they were two seasons ago, and Hannover is enjoying a good run of form since pre-season. The visitors can get at least a point in this one.
Key Match Facts
- Both teams scored in the last two meetings.
