Hannover finds itself at the wrong end of a 2-0 Europa League result, but the Germans are still confident in their chances. The hosts count on the support of their fans to offset the defeat and advance in the competition at the expense of Anzhi Makhachkala.
Match: Hannover vs Anzhi Makhachkala
Odds: Pinnacle Sports 2.43
So far, it is very difficult to dismiss those who say that in football money can buy everything, as Anzhi Makhachkala wins match after match and moves closer to the superior stages of Europa League. Eto’o proved that every dollar spent for him was well worth it and it, as the player from Cameron was the one who scored the equalizer back in Moscow. The visitors are going to use the same formation that brought them victory one week ago, but they will miss former Chelsea defender Yuri Zhirkov.
Scoring two goals without conceding one is not a straightforward task, especially when you have a team that allows a high average of goals both at home and away. Hannover can’t afford to allow an early goal if they are to preserve their chances of qualification intact, but they can’t use a defensive minded formation either. Konstantin Rausch is back after serving a two-game suspension, and he will frequently advance to support Addellaoue and Diouf, as the two strikers with pair up tonight.
Only time will tell whether Hannover will offset the handicap and achieve a miraculous result in front of its fans, but punters don’t need to bother themselves with the issue of qualification. A straight victory is enough to collect a nice payout, with the odds offered by Pinnacle Sports being a massive 2.43.
