VfL Osnabruck vs Hannover Prediction & Betting tips
The trips for Hannover 96 to the Bremer Brücke have become rare. However, when the 96ers came to Osnabrück for the derby, it was mostly successful. Since 1984, VfL has been waiting at home in the second division for a win in this Lower Saxony derby. After the impressions of the first day of the new season, it will be difficult for VfL to break through this black series on Friday.
Hannover 96 celebrated more victories against any other team in the 2nd Bundesliga than against the Veilchen. This is not the only reason why the best bookmakers see the 96s as favorites on Friday.
The previous competitive appearances of the Hanoverians, in the DFB Cup and on matchday 1, were more convincing than what VfL has achieved so far, although Marco Grote’s team has to be attested a passable performance, at least in Fürth. Nevertheless, between Osnabrück and Hanover, the first forecast is towards an away win.
But caution is advised for the guests, because VfL can surpass itself especially at the Bremer Brücke. However, due to the 7-day incidence, it will only be decided at short notice whether spectators will be admitted. All in all, we tend to give a tip to our guests between Osnabrück and Hanover.
In the first home game of the new season, Osnabrück was looking forward to a bit of normality.
Now it can happen that, as in Munich last week, the spectators at the Bremer Brücke remain completely locked out. If so, the violets will also switch to derby mode in a ghost game.
This season, the rhythm doesn’t seem to have been found under the new coach Marco Grote. In the DFB Cup, the violets had a lot of trouble to assert themselves against the upper division death field. For a long time, VfL had a hard time starting the league in Fürth last weekend.
New signing Christian Santos was able to equalize the early deficit after half an hour, but Fürth was the team that determined the game. Only in the closing stages did Marco Grote’s team even have a chance of winning the game. The bottom line is that more has to come in the derby, otherwise the odds of an away win between Osnabrück and Hanover remain the first choice.
In terms of personnel, the situation at VfL has not improved since the last game. Ulrich Bapoh, Marc Auge and Nico Granatowski will not be available in the derby either. There is also a big question mark behind Konstantin Engel (sick) and Ulrich Taffertshofer (muscular complaints). It is conceivable that VfL Osnabrück will start with the same formation on Friday as we won the points in Fürth.
In the past season Hannover 96 got turned on a used season and at no time was able to underline the ambitions of aiming for direct promotion as a relegated team. However, since Kenan Kocak took over the helm, things have been going uphill for Lower Saxony. Stability has returned to the team.
The two games in the new season are waiting convincingly for the 96ers. The 3: 2 in the cup at the league rivals in Würzburg sounds tighter than the game actually was. With the success of the league opener, Hannover still has a clean slate this season. Above all, the Lower Saxony had their worries and hardships last season.
Nevertheless, the odds comparison of the betting base shows the 96ers in the derby as favorites. This is partly due to the fact that the Hanoverians were able to convince again last weekend against KSC and achieved a sovereign 2-0 victory. Dominik Kaiser and Linton Maina were the goalscorers for Kenan Kocak’s team.
New signing Jaka Bijol may make his debut for Lower Saxony. Patrick Twumasi and Mick Gudra are injured. Nevertheless, it looks like a prognosis for the guest victory between Osnabrück and Hanover would be the right choice.
