TSG Hoffenheim vs SV Werder Bremen
German Bundesliga – 2017/18 Season
Date: Saturday, 19th August 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena, Sinsheim.
The team that won the hearts of the football fans throughout the entire season and the team who did the same in the second part of Bundesliga will collide as Hoffenheim welcome Werder Bremen.
Julian Nagelsmann and his man are amidst the UEFA Champions League qualification tie where they faced Liverpool. In the first match in Germany, they were beaten 1-2, but they can still fight their way through despite their chances are low.
In the first round of DFB Pokal, Hoffenheim bested Erfurt with 0-1. It will be extremely hard for Hoffenheim to repeat the last season’s success. Rudy and Sule departed from the team, two players that were immensely important for Julian Nagelsmann’s tactic.
SV Werder Bremen
Werder Bremen were featured in the high-scoring affairs in the last few matches of the season as they were chasing UEFA Europa League qualification. However, in the preseason, their manager opted for a more method-approach tested in the first competitive duel against Wurzburger Kickers. SV Werder cleanly won with 0-3, so Nouri will most likely continue with the 3-1-4-2 tactic.
Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
In the previous season, Hoffenheim inflicted a very painful defeat to Werder. In Bremen, Hoffenheim had the 0-5 lead after the 60 minutes, but Werder managed to reduce it to 3-5 due to Hoffenheim’s laziness.
Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen: LeagueLane Prediction
The two tactical masterminds will collide in one of the most exciting duels of the first round. Hoffenheim might rotate due to the upcoming match in England, and they might be feeling some fatigue from the Tuesday’s clash, so SV Werder will have a slight advantage in that part. Also, the motivational aspect is on Werder’s side.
