Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: PreZero Arena (Sinsheim).
Both Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen gave up the contention for European positions with a slower run of form in the last couple of weeks.
Die Kraichgauer ruined the four-win thread by claiming just one point from past two league outings against Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach.
The old woes regarding the lack of defensive meticulousness returned in past two matches which saw Julian Nagelsmann’s men concede six goals.
The hosts can still reach one of top-six spots, though. They can even make it to the top-four being just three points shy of fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt at the moment.
To keep any hopes of doing so, they need a rebound victory on Saturday afternoon when top-half rivals Werder Bremen come to visit PreZero Arena in Sinsheim.
Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
Die Kraichgauer are going against the head to head tradition here.
They have a dreadful record of just 3 wins, 9 draws and 11 defeats in 22 clashes against Werder Bremen.
Die Werderaner won one and drew two of past three encounters with Hoffenheim.
Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
The visitors go into this winless in four successive matches across competitions. They did have a very challenging schedule with fixtures against the likes of Bayern Munich (twice) and Borussia Dortmund along the way.
Nonetheless, the head coach Florian Kohfeldt clearly has reasons to be worried about his men’s defensive displays in the last couple of weeks. The visitors shipped nine goals in past three affairs. They are going up against attacking-minded Hoffenheim away in Sinsheim and we would really be shocked to witness a low-scoring contest here.
