Bremen is 16th in the Bundesliga points table. This is the second consecutive season where they are playing the playoffs to keep their position in the top tier. The first leg saw Heidenheim hold the 10 men Bremen to a goalless draw. The suspension has added more pressure on the team from Bremen.

Heidenheim played well in the first leg despite having minimal ball possession. They created 11 goal chances but failed to cash in on them. They have done exceptional in the league finishing third in the table. With a great home run going on they will hope to win this crucial tie.

Heidenheim vs Werder Bremen: Prediction

We cannot write off Bremen even though they had to settle for a draw in the first leg. They have pulled off some great results away from home. This includes away wins against Schalke and Freiburg. At the same time, Heidenheim has an unbeaten run at home which predominantly includes wins. So I think we might see a draw in ninety minutes and the match may go on to extra time or even spot-kicks.

The visitors might have to rethink their strategy coming into this game. They may already have an idea about what they did wrong last time.  On many occasions this season they have displayed the attacking power they have in store.  Heidenheim has never failed to score at home in the latest five competitive matches.  So I am backing the match to be a draw with both teams getting goals.
