Live in-play betting – 

VFL Wolfsburg were very lucky to survive relegation last season with a late run of 1-0 victories good enough to see them finish 16th in the league table – a position that was one of the worst in the club’s history.

Their major problem last season was lack of goals and star attacker Mario Gomez helped with the goals that saved them.

They have invested at least 45 million this summer and they will be looking to build on their last season survival heroics by ending this one in a European place.

Hannover bounced back into the German top flight after spending one season in the second division and have been impressive so far.

They haven’t lost a game in their last 10 competitive encounters – a run that stretches back to March.

They look like a side that could surprise watchers like RB Leipzig did last season and stand a chance of winning this encounter.

They are still without some key players due to injury but they have recorded two 1-0 wins against Schalke 04 and Mainz.

They might upset Wolfsburg who are still struggling in front of goal here.
