Back Hoffenheim to bounce back from Europa flop
BT Sport Extra, 2.30pm Sunday
Hoffenheim's maiden European adventure ended in disappointment but they will be looking to mix it with the finest on the continent once more next season and they can aid that cause with a positive result at Hannover.
Julian Nagelsmann's side went out of the Champions League to Liverpool in the playoff round and then suffered an early exit in the Europa League group stage which was more unexpected, although they never really possessed the squad to fight on two fronts.
However, Hoffenheim are in a good spot in the Bundesliga following last week's stunning 4-0 success over Leipzig where the continued absence of Bayern Munich-bound Sandro Wagner was no problem.
Serge Gnabry scored a sensational long-range effort and there's a lot of movement in the front areas with Mark Uth alongside the former Arsenal man, while Nadiem Amiri continues to impress in midfield.
Hannover have lost only one of their last 14 home games but they have collected just one point from their last four matches and injuries are beginning to bite with Waldemar Anton the latest to be rated doubtful.
