  • The last time these two sides met was over 10 years ago (29.10.2003) – in the second round of the German Cup. The then third-tier Braunschweig beat Bundesliga outfit Hannover 2-0 at home – Torsten Lieberknecht was amongst those on the pitch for Eintracht.
  • Braunschweig have won two of their last four Bundesliga games (L2) and would be in 8th place in a table for the last four matchdays – Hannover would be bottom with one point.
  • Hannover are the only side to have lost their last three Bundesliga matches, something that has only happened to them once before under Mirko Slomka. Slomka took charge in January 2010 and lost his first six games as Hannover manager.
