Hannover vs Schalke Prediction & Betting tips
The second day of the match will be rounded off by the duel of the Aufstieg Hannover 96 against the Königsblauen Schalker. Both teams delivered surprises on the first day.
The newcomer Hannover 96 delivered definitely one of the surprises on the first day. In the imaginatively difficult opening match at the 1. FSV Mainz 05 the men under the direction of coach Breitenreiter were able to make a deserved 0: 1 away win.
Although the Mainz side were determined by the game in the first half and found the better chances, the defense of the Lower Saxony was more than stable until the break so that they went into the half-time with a 0: 0. After the pause tea, the spectators presented a totally different picture. They were the Hanoverians, who had always called attention to themselves through dangerous counterattacks and in the 58th minute had to go through a lightning counter-attack by Klaus actually. Only new entry of the Mainz Rene Adler had something against it and parted brilliantly by foot defense.
In the 73rd minute it was time to go. Martin Harnik used his only chance in the complete game. Ostrzolek performed perfectly on the Austrian side and crossed the net from eleven meters dry. There was not much going on until the end, so the Breitenreiter men, although surprising, deserved to look forward to the first three of the season.
On Sunday, some of the players against Schalke’s royal blues will meet again. Not only Andre Breitenreiter but also manager of the 96s, Horst Heldt, have a Schalke past. Sportily, it looks rather bleak for the Lower Saxony against the Königsblauen. The last two Bundesliga games lost 3-1.
New entry Jonathas stands in front of his federal league. For him, filling jugs will have to yield.
In the internal defense, Sané returns (after red lock) and displaces Hübner.

The second surprise came with Schalke 04 on the first day. Hardly anybody would have thought that the royal bluewashes would beat the Vizemeister in the Veltins Arena.
Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco immediately surprised the match with his lineup. Di Santo, Goretzka and Naldo, so Höwedes not only had to hand over his captain’s tie to Fährmann, but also to sit on the bench.
The Saxons tried in the first pass all to break the three-defense series, but especially at Naldo the Leipziger bit by the way. The cracking point of the encounter occurred just before the break. The referee had no chance but to point to the penalty spot after the clumsy Rempler of Upamecano at Di Santo. Bentaleb used this humorless 1: 0 break.
After the half time Hasenhüttl brought Forsberg and hoped for new momentum, but more than a breeze did not bring it and so it came as it had to come. Konoplyanka, who had fallen into disgrace under the former coach of the Schalke Weinzierl, scored the 2-0 final result after a picture book. So the start of the Tedesco-men has been successful.
On Sunday, the Königsblauen expects a different game, because they will be against the newcomer Hanover, who have to make the game.
Burgstaller is again ready for action after his footing, but di Santo could be preferred because of his good performance against Leipzig in the Sturmzentrum.
Fährmann – Kehrer, Naldo, Nastasic – D. Caligiuri, Bentaleb, Oczipka – Goretzka – Konoplyanka, Harit – di Santo
