Date: Saturday, 16 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Both Hertha and Werder will come into Saturday’s tie at Olympiastadion in the highest of spirits following impressive displays from last weekend’s fixtures.
The Old Lady shocked second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach 0-3 away at BORUSSIA-PARK. Hertha thus ended Gladbach’s impeccable streak as the Foals were on a nine-win thread in front of the home crowd in this term of Bundesliga.
Can Berliners back up such a phenomenal showing here against Werder Bremen?
It will by no means be an easy task for the hosts though. Die Werdeeramer atre unbeaten in five matches in 2019 and they notched an impressive seven-goal tally in last two outings.
Florian Kohfeldt’s men knocked out Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund from DFB Pokal on penalties after earning a 3-3 draw in 120 minutes of the tie at Signal-Iduna-Park. Such achievement was following by the 4-0 drubbing of Augsburg six days ago at Weserstadion.
Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
Werder Bremen will rely on the head to head tradition aiming to stay unbeaten in six consecutive game in 2019.
They lead the H2H tie by 17 wins ahead of 71st meeting with the Old Lady.
Hertha are winless in last ten encounters with Die Werderaner.
Werder picked up a 3-1 victory in this term’s clash in late-September last year.
Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Werder were much more consistent in recent weeks and we find the value in backing them not to lose at the odds of 1.61. They allowed 14 goals in 10 away matches so far in the season. Given they kept their net untouched twice in four league games this year, we’d not be surprised to see Hertha struggling for creativity in the final third on the evening.
We generally expect a close affair since the hosts were also fairly tough to break down throughout the entire season. The value is also huge with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.20.
