Borussia Dortmund tend to enjoy making trips to Hanover, where they have a positive away record. The Black & Yellows have won on 11 of their previous 25 trips to the Lower Saxony capital, losing only seven. Here we bring you the facts ahead of Saturday's match.

Head-to-head facts

  • Borussia Dortmund have won six of their last seven meetings with Hannover 96, taking 10 out of a possible 12 points from their last four away matches. Their last three trips to the 96ers all ended in victory.
  • The Black & Yellows have scored at least once on each of their last 22 trips to Hanover – the second-longest such run in Bundesliga history (behind Leverkusen, who scored in 23 consecutive away matches in Bremen between 1991 and 2012). The last game in which BVB failed to score in Hanover came in August 1966, when they lost 2-0.

Hannover 96 facts

  • The men from Lower Saxony have only lost one of their last four home games, when they were defeated 2-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt on 14 October.
  • No team has conceded fewer goals than Hannover 96, whose defence – like Borussia Dortmund's – has only been beaten on seven occasions this term.

Borussia Dortmund facts

  • BVB have scored more goals than any other club this season (25), have scored at least twice in each of their last six matches and have always scored the all-important opening goal in those six matches.
  • Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten in seven away matches stretching back to last season. The last away defeat was by a 4-1 scoreline in Munich on 8 April.
  • BVB are unbeaten on the road this season, having won three of their five games and drawn the other two. No other club has won away from home more often. (br)
