Hannover vs Nurnberg by Sunshine
Hannover lost away from home 3:1 in Hoffenheim in previous round, after having drawn 2:2 in Europa League match against Twente just few days before the game played in Bundesliga. That defeat was their worst game so far this season, as they clearly lacked the pace during the game, but also creativity in attack and were losing the ball rather easily.
Perfectly reasonable defeat for them, as they are currently standing sixth at the table with seven points earned from four matches. The goal is clear and rather reasonable too - they want to get the Europa League position once again. Having in mind that they had a really good start of the season and that the team was looking unbeatable in games till last weekend, everyone is determined to prove that the loss against Hoffenheim was just a poor afternoon.
Home team will be boasted with the return of midfielder Hustzi after suspension, while left back Pander is once again out - for the fourth game in row. Defensive midfielder Leon Andreasen is also set to return after an injury.

Nurnberg, on the other side, is having exactly the same record like their opponents, with two wins, one draw and one loss. Things to be even more similar, they also have suffered their first loss in the season last weekend - losing to Eintracht Frankfrut 1:2 at home.
In comparison to their opponents, they however didn't deserve to lose that game as the draw would have been much more fair result. Home team had many goalscoring opportunities via set pieces and although they lacked the creativity in comparison to Eintracht, they still could have done much better last weekend. Anyway, although with a positive start, their targets haven't changed as the only goal is to avoid relegation battle. Guests will be boasted with the return of central defender Timm Klose and offensive midfielder Robert Mak who have both overcame their injuries.
Hannover is deservedly set as a slight favorite in this game as they simply have better squad looking at the individual quality. However, they made some big mistakes in the defense in previous match and Nurnberg will surely have their own chances to score here, at least via set pieces like in previous game. Hannover's defense didn't prove yet to be strong and therefore betting on goals should be much better option between clubs that know each other very well (their coaches are close friends).
