Hertha Berlin and Werder Bremen

Match Date: 03 May 2014 (local time

Venue: Weserstadion


Prior to the season’s end, Werder Bremen would want to seek redemption from the thrashing they received from the Bavarians. Hertha Berlin, however, is unwilling to throw the white towel as they also aspire for a stronger finish.


Werder Bremen’s last 2 matches will not be easy. After Hertha Berlin, they need to face Bayer Leverkusen. Given the strength of their upcoming opponents, they might see themselves at risk of hitting the rock bottom part of the table. It does not necessarily mean that they will be relegated, considering that the season is about to end, but they will forego the chance of making a stronger finish. Werder Bremen will face the online betting favorite, Hertha Berlin with 2 victories, 3 losses and a draw.


As for the case of the capital club, the match is also their last chance of moving a notch higher in the hierarchy of Germany’s top-flight league. The newly promoted club did well this season and if not for a series of blunders during the season’s second half, there is a high possibility for them to seal a qualifying berth either in the Europa or Champions League.


Going against Werder Bremen might seem easy, but the Old Lady should not forget that they failed to impress in their last 5 away matches. They need to address their away performance if they are really keen on improving their current rank.


Prediction: Hertha Berlin
