Reason For Werder Bremen vs Hoffenheim Betting Tips

Hoffenheim’s season has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride that has plateaued in recent weeks. Julian Nagelsmann’s men had lost three in a row prior to their current run of eight matches unbeaten (W4 D4), but draws in each of their last four – albeit over a tricky run of fixtures – has exposed one key flaw: their defence. Excluding last weekend’s 0-0 draw at home to Gladbach, Hoffenheim have had very few problems in front of goal. Youngster Reiss Nelson, Brazilian Joelinton and World Cup finalist Andrej Kramaric have all been key to their form – in fact, 8 of Hoffenheim’s last 11 goals have been scored by the trio – but some poor defensive form has cost them at times and sees them now five points short of the top four.

In the grand scheme of things, Werder Bremen aren’t doing too bad either. Despite having just four points from their last six league outings (W1 D1 L4), you couldn’t really say that their season has been anything other than ‘impressive’ so far by their standards – in fact, their 21 points from 15 matches is one of their best ever starts to a Bundesliga campaign. However, they are at a ‘make or break’ turning point with matches against Hoffenheim and Leipzig still to come before the winter break. And they should be up for it after putting up a decent fight away to Dortmund last weekend.

Going off that, we feel this could be one worth tuning in for, and we like a bet on ‘over 3.5 goals’ for the following reasons: Werder’s poor overall form might hinder their chances of getting a result on Wednesday, but with the way many of Hoffenheim’s matches have played out this term, it shouldn’t stop them from getting on the score-sheet. Hoffenheim’s football under Julian Nagelsmann is a highly attacking style – an effective one at that – which focuses on outscoring their opponents, rather than aiming to stop their opponents scoring. Some examples of this can be seen in some of Hoffenheim’s recent matches – over 3.5 goals has landed in 7 of their last 9 away outings across all competitions.

Werder vs Hoffenheim is a historically high scoring fixture too. Over the 20 Bundesliga matches between them to date, 70 goals have been scored, equating to 3.5 per game. Current stats from both sides should see this trend continue, particularly with Bremen being the only Bundesliga side to have scored in all 15 league matches this term. Underlying stats only add to that as no team has recorded more shots on target than Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga! Hoffenheim might have struggled for results in recent games, but with Werder Bremen lacking form at home to the “big guns” – they’ve had defeats to Leverkusen, Bayern and Gladbach at the Weserstadion since late October – we like the visitors to get something from this game. Our prediction: 3-1 TSG Hoffenheim.

Head to Head

Werder Bremen drew 1-1 at home to Hoffenheim when the two sides last met in January. Werder have lost just one Bundesliga home match against Hoffenheim (W4 D5 L1).
