• Hannover have never lost a competitive match against FC Augsburg (W3 D4). Alongside five top-flight encounters, the sides have also met twice in the second division.
  • FCA are the only current top flight side that 96 have never lost to. Hannover have won the last three meetings and have scored exactly twice in each of the last four encounters.
  • Not only have Hannover lost their last three games, they have failed to score in them too. The last time they failed to score in three successive matches was in April 2012, although that run did produce one point.
  • 96 have lost 10 of their 11 away matches this season. With just three points collected on their travels in 2013/14, they are the worst away side in the league.
  • Augsburg have suffered just one defeat in their last 10 Bundesliga matches (W6 D3) – they lost 1-0 to Nürnberg in their most recent home game.
  • With 34 points to their name after 22 games, FCA have already collected more points this season than they did in the whole of the last campaign (33). They are just four points short of equalling their record Bundesliga points haul from the 2011/12 season (38).
  • Hannover have conceded at least once in their last 14 away games and have even conceded at least twice in 12 of those games. The last time they kept a clean sheet on the road was in their 2-0 victory in Augsburg on March 30th 2013.
  • Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker is missing against Hannover having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season. Manager Markus Weinzierl is thus forced to reshuffle his pack, with the defender having started all 22 league games so far this season.
  • In Tayfun Korkut and Markus Weinzierl, the two youngest managers in the Bundesliga go face to face. Both are 39 years old and are meeting in a competitive game for the first time.
