Football Bundesliga Hannover 96 is afraid of the international game on Saturday (from 15.30 in the Liveticker) at Bayer Leverkusen for the use of wing players Ihlas Bebou.
“Behind his bet is a question mark,” said 96-coach Andre Breitenreiter at the game day press conference on Thursday.
Beside Bebou, who is working on a pool show, are also questionable Julian Korb, Philipp Tschauner and Josip Elez (all back problems).
To create Coach Breitenreiter also makes the external weakness of his team. During the 45-year-old, Hannover won only two international games. The last one is almost exactly one year ago and dates from the 21st. October 2017 (2:1 in Augsburg). Since then, 96 out of 16 games has not won in a foreign place, there have been five remis and eleven defeats.
“We don’t like t hat either. Of course we want to win,”said Breitenreiter, underlining:”We must be consistent in the exploitation of opportunities. We should not be focusing on statistics. Each game starts at zero.”Hannover is currently occupying the pitch with five points. On the last day of the game there was the first season victory for the Lower Saxons at 3:1 against the VfB Stuttgart.
