Tough on the road Mönchengladbach have lost just one of their last five Bundesliga away games – a 3-1 defeat in Düsseldorf in their most recent fixture on the road. They have otherwise recorded three wins – with a clean sheet in each – and one draw.
Fighting on Gladbach are four points clear of the next position that doesn’t guarantee Europe (Hoffenheim in 7th), while they are also four points adrift of Champions League qualification (Frankfurt in 4th).
Flat-lining? Borussia Mönchengladbach have won just one of their last eight Bundesliga matches (D3 L4) – a 1-0 victory in Mainz on matchday 25.
Out of ideas? Hannover have won just three of the nine games in which they have led (D3 L3). The Lower Saxony club have also claimed a league-low one point from losing positions in the Bundesliga this season (D1 L20).
Worst in the division Having conceded 65 goals, Hannover have the worst defence in the league. The last Bundesliga team to have let in as many goals after 28 games was Hertha back in 1990-91 (65), when they were ultimately relegated in last place.
Dead ducks? Hannover 96 have lost each of their last seven games, a run they last suffered in their 2015-16 relegation campaign (8 between December and February). Their last win was a 2-0 victory over Nürnberg on matchday 21.
You can’t fight fate None of the 13 sides with fewer than 19 points after 28 games (converted to 3 points per win where necessary) have ever stayed up.
