The new coach’s balance sheet is mixed: Jan Zimmermann has recorded nine games, three wins, two draws, four defeats and 13th place in the table since he took office at Hannover 96 in July. Zimmermann can collect points again on Friday. 96 receives Bundesliga relegated Schalke 04 (6.30 p.m., LIVE! At kicker), who won twice in a row before the international break.

The 96 coach, however, exudes optimism: “The way we are developing is positive. We have had a good, focused preparation for Schalke, we feel confident and well prepared.”

Also on Schalke’s striker Simon Terodde, who has already been successful eleven times this season. For comparison. 96 has only scored seven goals in nine games. “Simon Terodde made a lot of goals out of a few chances. We have to be very focused and defend him consistently. Nevertheless, we will not put up any special security. We will try to solve that as a team,” announced Zimmermann.

In addition, there is the support of the spectators: the HDI Arena will be almost sold out after a long time. “That is of course much more fun than in front of empty stands. That motivates the boys, of course. We are highly motivated to get three points,” says the 96 coach, who can almost draw on the full in terms of personnel. Only Philipp Ochs is out. And he’s a supplementary player anyway.
