Hannover face Bayern Munich at HDI-Arena on Saturday, April 21. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Hannover are nearing Bundesliga survival with four games remaining. The Reds are six points clear of the relegation playoff zone. On Saturday, Hannover host Bayern Munich at HDI-Arena. Despite having already clinched the Bundesliga title, Bayern Munich have not taken their foot off of the gas. Bayern defeated Borussia Monchengladbach 5-1 last weekend and Bayer Leverkusen 6-2 on Tuesday to advance to the DFB Pokal final. However, with the first leg of their Champions League draw against Real Madrid on Wednesday, Jupp Heynckes might rest his starters.
Hannover drew with Stuttgart 1-1 in their last game, giving them four points in their first three games under Andre Breitenreiter. Niclas Fullkrug has had a breakout season, scoring 12 goals. Salif Sane has been an integral part of Hannover’s defense. The Senegal center-back has provided strong defense and shown an ability to score goals, netting three this season. Unfortunately, the Reds will be tasked with replacing him this summer. Schalke announced this week that they signed Sane.
Bayern announced this week that Nico Kovac will replace Jupp Heynckes at the end of the season. The former Bayern defender is currently chasing a Champions League spot with Frankfurt. Heynckes is again chasing a treble in his final season. With the Champions League returning, Heynckes will likely start Sebastian Rudy, Niklas Sule, Juan Bernat, Rafinha, Corentin Tolisso and Sandro Wagner. Bayern cannot afford an injury to one of their stars ahead of the first leg against Real Madrid.
The Bundesliga match between Hannover and Bayern Munich will be broadcast on FS1. Live streaming is available on Fox Sports Go, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscription, either online or through their app.
