  • Their last three matches have ended in a draw.

  • The host is unbeaten in the last 13 overall meetings.
  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 2-2 draw.
  • The guest has been unsuccessful for their past 12 visits.

Werder Bremen vs Hertha Berlin Prediction

Bremen was included in the relegation play-offs last season, but they have stayed at the top tier for another season with their improved form. Their last league clash ended in a 6-1 win at home against FC Koln in the last term Bundesliga.

They will return to the campaign in hopes to build on that last home win. And since they are opening their new season at home, the chances are high for them to carry on that winning trend at Weserstadion.

Die Werderaner is still weaker than Hertha on the basis of their league position last season and the latter had a 10 points lead over the host in the table. They are likely to strike against the home team in the game, and probably slot in a goal. That’s why; the BTTS will be a suitable option for the clash.

Florian Kohfeldt will take into account his team’s h2h performance against the visitor. They have been unbeaten for the past 13 h2h meetings overall and consecutive 12 home matches in their record with Die Alte Dame since 2014.

Keeping this in mind, it cannot be said that the host has no control over the game. Despite lagging in the last season by points, Kohfeldt’s boys have made up to it in the h2h section. With those stats, the double chance favoring Werder Bremen will probably be the best bet for the punters.
