Team Form


Three (3) straight losses best explain why Hoffenheim’s survival is at risk. The loss against Augsburg was a crucial one since it might just be the trigger of their downward slip.


Not even an iota of Hoffenheim’s impressive demolition job against Hannover 96 was present when they encountered Bayern Munchen, Hertha Berlin and Augsburg. Technically speaking, the club experiences a losing streak. The depth of their form slowly depleted. It was a clean sheet and they were less aggressive and less clinical.


The recent defeat saw them too shy of taking shots. Augsburg had 16 while they only had 8. They did well in passing the ball, but this barely made sense as scoring opportunities were immediately deflected.


The upcoming match against Werder Bremen should be an easy win for the host. However, the club also suffers from a poor home performance. In 7 of their last 8 home matches, they conceded 2 goals. This form therefore lowers their chance of securing a needed victory.


Werder Bremen

Similar to Hoffenheim, Werder Bremen also lost their most recent match, which was pitted against Mainz 05. The club struggled to triumph over the dominant host but has managed to score 2 goals.


Werder Bremen’s come from behind rally explains why they rank better than Hoffenheim. It suggests a better form, which deliver results most especially during crunch time. Bremen currently stands at the 12th spot of the Bundesliga table and is keen on recovering from their disappointing loss.


They will most likely take advantage of Hoffenhiem’s poor home performance to clinch their 5th win.


Hoffenheim has only won once against Werder Bremen during their last 6 matches. Apparently, this increases the latter’s winning possibilities in their upcoming match.
