FC Bayern Munich vs Hannover 96
German Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 2nd December 2017
Kick-Off Time: 15:30 - Nigerian Time
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern come into this match on top of the league almost by default.

They haven't been their best, but they have taken top spot through steady hands and Borussia Dortmund falling by the wayside. After last week's loss, they are just three points above Leipzig currently.

Hannover have done extremely well to get themselves to tenth place with 19 points.

They are eight clear of Freiburg in the relegation battle, so they can attack this match and look for a shock result.

Bayern have been perfect at home so far this season in the league with the exception of just one draw. The other five matches have resulted in wins, and they have conceded just three in total there this term.

Hannover have also been good at home, but it's their away form that is off a little. They have two wins out of seven, but they also have three losses and two draws.

TEAM NEWS:

Bayern Munich - Manager Jupp Heynckes will be missing a number of players for this match. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, winger Franck Ribery, and center midfielder Thiago are all long term casualties. Other players with undefined timelines for returns include left backs David Alaba and Juan Bernat, winger Arjen Robben, attacking midfielder James Rodriguez, and striker Thomas Muller.

Hannover - Coach Andre Breitenreiter will be missing center back Felipe, winger Uffe Bech, left midfielder Edgar Prib, and forward Jonathas due to injuries.

TEAM FORMS:
