Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen
Date: Sunday, 10th September 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion, Berlin.
In the first Sunday Bundesliga match Hertha BSC Berlin welcome SV Werder Bremen at Olympiastadion in the German capital. The visitors are sitting in the last position and they will be aiming to escape promptly, while Hertha want to make their home stadium a fortress from the previous campaign.
The home side has collected three points so far. In the opening round, they triumphed over VfB Stuttgart on the home turf with 2-0, but in the next they visited Westfalenstadion where they were beaten by mighty Dortmund.
Hertha will aim another top-six finish in the current season, and taking the fact that they play horribly on the road into an account, anything other than three points would be an underwhelming result.
SV Werder Bremen
The visitors had the most difficult opponents in the opening two rounds. In the first, they faced TSG Hoffenheim in Sinsheim where they were beaten 1-0. In the second, they hosted Bayern Munich whom they bowed with 0-2.
The lack of efficiency is slightly worrying for SV Werder, the team that could hit the back of the net three times per match in the second part of the previous season.
Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
In the last seven outings between the two sides, Werder have triumphed four times while remaining unbeaten in three. Hertha will be looking to grab the first victory over Bremen since 2014.
Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Hertha are incredibly strong on the home turf and Werder will have a tough time grabbing any points at Olympiastadion. A draw would certainly satisfy the visitors, but with Hertha’s attacking approach and Werder’s obligation to score the first goal of the season, we might witness a fruitful match when it comes to goals.
