It is true that the 2. Bundesliga is only just beginning, but Würzburg have already shown signs that their season will be difficult.

His attack has scored regularly, as he has scored goals in 5 of the last 7 matches for this competition.
Hannover will respect their rival and that cannot be doubted, but respect does not mean not acting. He wants to take advantage of the local team to be going through a moment in a negative way, to beat him. If you can play in an organized and error-free way, it won’t be a surprise if you score all three points. Therefore, you will have to present defensive security and efficiency in attack.
