The coach warned, however, to underestimate Hannover. The team is not leader in the 2nd league, “but they score and play straight, like a first place in the 2nd league”.

Tedesco also addressed the lawn in Hannover, who had been very deeply deep in the league game against Holstein Kiel (2: 0) due to rainfall.
