Stoke City target Mame Biram Diouf starts for Hannover in their Bundesliga opener at home to Wolfsburg.

Stoke City target Mame Biram Diouf has been included in Hannover's starting XI for this afternoon's Bundesliga opener at home Wolfsburg.

Hannover turned down an official approach for the Senegal striker yesterday and pick Diouf to lead the line in a lone front role.

Salif Sane makes his Bundesliga debut for the hosts at centre-back, while Christian Pander is preferred to Sebastien Pocognoli at left-back.

Wolfsburg have opted to start Croatian veteran Ivica Olic in attack, with Brazilian playmaker Diego providing support from an advanced midfield role.

Summer signing Timm Klose partners Naldo in central defence for the visitors, while teenager Maximilian Arnold is a surprise choice in midfield.

Hannover: Zieler, Sakai, Sane, Haggui, Pander, Andreasen, Stindl, Bittencourt, Prib, Huszti, Diouf

Wolfsburg: Benaglio, Trasch, Naldo, Klose, Rodriguez, Polak, Koo, Vieirinha, Diego, Arnold, Olic
