Hannover hosts Borussia Monchengladbach in the German DFB Pokal 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 18th at HDI-Arena (Hannover)
Hannover played in the elite division a few years ago. Now the team is an outsider in Bundesliga 2. The Reds have 20 points after 18 rounds, and the gap from the relegation zone is only three points. Separately, I would like to note Hannover scored only 14 goals and conceded 27 times in 18 matches. As you can see, the team has problems with creation and defense. Let’s look at the results in the German Cup. The men of Christoph Dabrowski played two matches and were stronger than Norderstedt (0-4) and Fortuna Dusseldorf (3-0). Six of the last eight Hannover’s matches in the cup ended with “Both teams to score — no.”

Borussia Monchengladbach failed the first half of the Bundesliga season. The team finished in close proximity to the relegation zone. However, in the very first match after the winter holidays, the Colts sensationally beat Bayern Munich away (1-2). Considering that it will be difficult for the Prussians to qualify for European competitions in the championship, it is quite possible that they will try to compete for the Cup. And given the level of Hannover, Borussia Monchengladbach must advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament. In this draw, the Colts eliminated Kaiserslautern (1-0) and then made a sensation by destroying Bayern Munich with a score of 5-0.
Five previous head-to-head matches between Hannover and Borussia Monchengladbach have invariably ended in victories for the Colts. These teams faced each other five times at different stages of the German Cup: two games ended in draws in regulation time, and Borussia won three times. I think Hannover will not be able to continue its fight in this cup draw. The Reds have been in crisis for several years. To cope with a team from the elite division is an impossible task for them at the moment. The hosts will probably try to avoid a major defeat. By the way, I do not rule out that they will even be able to score one goal. After all, Borussia concedes a lot in the championship, especially in away matches. But the Colts must score either, so I recommend betting on an exchange of goals.
