Hannover 96 vs. Bayern Munich: Team News, Preview, Live Stream and TV Info

Published by Bleacher Report on Sat, 07 Mar 2015

Bayern Munich will do their utmost to ensure another professional performance on Saturday when they travel to Hannover in their next Bundesliga game.However, in facing an opponent yet to win a game in 2015, Pep Guardiola's team will undoubtedly require a serious amount of concentration and commitment.Tayfun Korkut's team are just one of a number of sides in Germany and across the continent who have dwindled since arriving in mid-table limbo, yet with just four pointsseparatingthem from Paderborn in the relegationspot, it won't be long before the pressure begins to pick up and the need for points resumes.However, Saturday's game won't be the case, as Hannover welcome the Munich giants in modest hopes of simply avoiding a heavy defeat like league comrades Cologne, Hamburg and indeed Paderborn. A comfortable win for Bayern looks likely.FormHannoverBayern MunichStuttgartdrawEintracht BraunschweigwonColognedrawColognewonPaderborn lossPaderbornwonHamburglossShakhtar DonetskdrawMainzdrawHamburgwonPredicted LineupsWe're very unlikely to see much change from Guardiola's squad compared to previous games, with Rafinha and Juan Bernat on either flank alongside Holger Badstuber and Jerome Boateng in the centre of defence.Bastian Schweinsteiger will continue his commanding role in midfield alongside Alaba, while Xabi Alonso remains on the bench. Arjen Robben, Thomas Mueller and Franck Ribery will shore up the attacking options behind Robert Lewandowski.For Hannover, we should see Korkut go withJoao Pereiraat right-back andMiiko Albornoz at left-back alongside Marcelo andChristian Schulzin the middle of defence.Manuel SchmiedebachandLeon Andreasenshould keep their spots in the centre of midfield in a bid to protect the back line, yet we should see the introduction ofJimmy Briandon the right,Leonardo Bittencourton the left andHiroshi Kiyotakethrough the middle to combat the suspension ofLars Stindl. Joselu will play up front as the lone striker.Players to WatchBastian SchweinsteigerWith Alonso on the periphery at the moment, Guardiola will turn to Schweinsteiger to pick up the responsibility in midfield and really dominate this match from start to finish in passing and possession.The German international had an outstanding game last weekend against Cologne without Alonso in the side, and we should expect the very same from Schweinsteiger again on Saturday.JoseluThere was once a time when this Spanish striker seemed like something of a dud in German football yet here we stand today talking of former Real Madrid, Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Joselu as Hannover's key attacking threat on Saturday.The forward has scored no less than 10 goals in all competitions so far this season and will be absolutely desperate to add to that tally against the greatest of challenges on Saturday.Key BattlesJoselu vs. Holger BadstuberAs we just mentioned, Joselu is enjoying a rich vein of form this season, but he'll have to overcome the might of returning star Badstuber if he has any hopes of scoring on Saturday.The German defender has looked imperious since returning from injury and will fancy his chances of keeping his Spanish opponent quiet throughout the match.Miiko Albornoz vs. Arjen RobbenWhen it comes to Bayern these days, we really can't consider how much of a threat they are without mentioning Robben. The Dutch international is quite simply the very best in Germany at the moment andwill be confident of adding to his 17 goals already this season.Standing in his way will be Albornoz, yet the Chilean full-back will have to be wary of bombing forward and leaving Robben with enough space and time to do his worst.Odds (Per Oddschecker)Hannover 11/1Draw 11/2Bayern 1/4
