Kaiserslautern vs Hannover 96 Predictions

  • Kaiserslautern boss Dirk Schuster is unbeaten in six of his seven meetings with Hannover.
  • Hannover had a mere 29% win-rate in away league games last season.
  • Only one side picked up more home points than Kaiserslautern in their last league campaign.

Kaiserslautern ease their way into the 2. Bundesliga

At the end of the 2021/22 regular season, Kaiserslautern controversially sacked their coaching staff and replaced the head coach with Dirk Schuster for the promotion play-off.

That gamble certainly paid off as his men ground out a 2-0 aggregate win over Dynamo Dresden. Now Schuster eyes a positive start to the new campaign, something he is fairly used to after famously leading Darmstadt to back-to-back promotions earlier in his career!

What’s more is the fact that Kaiserslautern have shored up the defence with a couple of smart signings from the top-flight, including former Union Berlin stopper Andreas Luthe and former Frankfurt full back Erik Durm.

Poor travelling Hannover may struggle

Fans of Hannover will be wise not to underestimate their opening day opponents simply because they are a newly promoted outfit, Hannover picked up just 42% of their league points away from home last term which ultimately equated to a meagre 29% win rate on their travels.

Visiting coach Stefan Leitl has faced Schuster on four prior occasions yet only won one of those encounters, though the acquisitions of attacking talent such as Louis Schaub and Havard Nielsen could prove fruitful.

Ultimately, we predict Kaiserslautern to continue their positive momentum from last season into the opening day and come away with a valuable home win. Such victories will be crucial to at least maintaining their second-tier status so a hard-fought 2-1 home win looks to be a likely outcome.
