• Hannover have lost just one of their last 15 home games against Frankfurt (W8 D6) and are unbeaten in their last nine home matches against Eintracht (W5 D4).
  • Hannover haven’t won any of their last seven league games, while Frankfurt are without a win in eight Bundesliga fixtures. Only Nürnberg have been waiting longer for three points in the league (13 games).
  • With just 11 points, Frankfurt are having their worst season for 10 years (only 8 points after 13 games in 2003/04). Hannover’s tally of 14 points is their worst under Mirko Slomka.
  • Only Werder Bremen (11) have conceded more goals in the last four games than Frankfurt and Hannover (both 10, the same as Stuttgart).
  • Frankfurt have already conceded seven goals in the last 10 minutes of games, a league-high. If Bundesliga matches ended after 80 minutes, Eintracht would have 21 points instead of their current total of 11 and would be in sixth place (currently 15th).
  • Hannover are the only team in the Bundesliga yet to collect a point away from home. Frankfurt have claimed 73% (8 of 11) of their points on the road, the highest percentage in the league together with Freiburg.
  • Hannover have the worst disciplinary record in the league. No other side has committed more fouls (265), picked up more yellow cards (35) or had more players sent off (4, the same as Freiburg and Wolfsburg).
  • Only once before has Armin Veh been without a win in more successive games as a Bundesliga manager (9 matches between September and November 2002) than he has at the moment (8). Mirko Slomka’s only longer winless streak before now (7 games) came between October 2011 and January 2012 (8 games).
  • Tranquillo Barnetta (2004/05), Jan Rosenthal (2000-2010) and Constant Djakpa (2009-2011) have all worn Hannover colours in the Bundesliga before.
  • Joselu scored his first goals for Eintracht on matchday 13. He was also involved in nine shots in one game for the first time in the Bundesliga.
