• Hannover have picked up just one point in their last two home meetings with Hertha; Freiburg are the only other Bundesliga side that 96 are without a win against in their last two home games.
  • 96 won a league-high 72% of their points in home games last season; their percentage in this campaign stands at 100% but are yet to claim a point on the road or even score a goal.
  • Hannover could break a club record in the top flight with another home win. The only other occasions when they won their first four home games in a season were during the 1965/66 and 1969/70 seasons; they have never reached five.
  • Hertha have won just one of their last 14 Bundesliga away games (D7, L6); a 3-1 win in Mainz during March 2012. Since then, Berlin have drawn four times in six Bundesliga away appearances (L2).
  • Luhukay’s side have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight competitive away matches (including last season). The last time a side failed to score on their home turf against Hertha was TSV 1860 München in a 0-0 draw in March.
  • Despite not having a positive goal difference after seven games, Slomka’s side still sit in the top four of the Bundesliga table. The last side to do that in the top flight was MSV Duisburg during the 1997/98 campaign.
  • 96 have managed to score at least twice in their last six home matches (15 goals) something they have never done under Mirko Slomka before; the last time they achieved that was between September 2007 and February 2008 (also a run of six games).
  • Hannover have already won six points after trailing in games this season, a league high. Hertha are second with five points; Berlin have won four of those points in their last two matches.
