Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen

Match Date: 19 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Weser Stadion

 

TSG Hoffenheim visits Weser Stadion with hopes of extending its 5 undefeated streak to 6. The squad has been impressive this season. It has managed to penetrate the league’s top 10, much to the surprise of many and clearly, losing has no room for the squad.

 

Hoffenheim almost lost its Bundesliga status last season. After a lackluster performance, the club found itself desperately hanging on to the table’s 16th spot. But this is already history. Hoffenheim is currently the 9th best club in the league, a far-fetched shot from what it has achieved last season.

 

Apparently, Markus Gisdol and his men do not have plans of backing down. They will try to collect as many victories as they can. Inspired by the possibility of snatching a higher rank, one can only expect a down the wire match in the said encounter and since Hoffenheim takes the visitor’s role, it will ensure a more clinical finish. They have been scoring an average of 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches and definitely, they will exploit it to counter Werder Bremen’s home court advantage.

 

Speaking of Werder Bremen, the club suffered a humiliating loss to Mainz 05. They were unable to recover after its striker hit an own goal during the first 5 minutes of the said match.

 

The said defeat also left Werder Bremen with an unsatisfactory team form wherein they have only won once in their last 6 matches,

 

Given this aspect at hand, it does not come as a surprise if Hoffenheim gets the football betting favorite role in the said match.

 

Prediction: TSG Hoffenheim
