Hannover 96 vs. Werder Bremen

Match Date: 30 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: AWD-Arena


Coming from 2 consecutive losses, Hannover 96 and Werder Bremen are on the verge and perhaps, even desperate of securing a victory.


The importance of such win will determine their survival this season. On a closer look, Hannover and Werder Bremen are still far from the relegation zone. The former occupies the 12th spot, while the latter closely follows on the 13th spot. However, this does not guarantee that they will be saved and eventually participate in the next season.


With the fierce competition experienced in the Bundesliga, clubs, except for Bayern Munchen, which has successfully defended their crown, will vie for a stronger finish. The slightest move in the mid-table ranking can greatly affect squads like them, which are at the bottom part of the table.


Hannover has only won once in their last 6 matches. Werder, on the other hand, has two. But then again, the two share an equal number of points. Both have 29 and Hannover has a better goal difference.


With the clubs’ strong determination and seemingly equal strength, it is not impossible to see online bookies tip for a stalemate.


Prediction: Stalemate
