Bayer Leverkusen vs Hannover 96
Bayer Leverkusen hosts Hannover 96 in a match from the 8th round of the German Bundesliga. What’s going on with these two sides before their clash at the BayArena in Leverkusen? Let’s see.
Bayer Leverkusen is 14th in the Bundesliga standings at this moment, so we can’t say that they are having a very good season so far. They have just 7 points won so far and a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. In their last two games, they managed to win just one point – during the 0-0 draw against Freiburg. Before this Leverkusen suffered a 2-4 defeat during the home game against Borussia Dortmund.
Last season Leverkusen was very close to qualifying for the Champions League, but right now they are looking like a different team. It’s truly unexplainable how they could suffer such a dip in their form for just a few months of time. Now the manager Heiko Herrlich has the tough job to find a solution. If he doesn’t, then maybe he would have to say goodbye to his job.
Hannover 96 are also not having a very good start of the season. They are currently 16th in the Bundesliga with just 5 points won. Their record shows 1 win, 2 draws and 4 defeats in the matches played so far.
In the previous round, Hannover finally enjoyed their first win for the season, beating Stuttgart with 3-1 at home. The American Bobby Wood scored a brace for Hannover, while Ihlas Bebou added one more for the winning team. If it was not this win, then Hannover would still be in the relegation zone of the league. They really needed these 3 points.
That’s what happening with Bayer Leverkusen and Hannover 96 before their clash at the BayArena. We wish you good luck!
