The Bundesliga actions continues on Saturday as Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen takes place at the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena. We are expecting a very competitive match between the two teams. They will look to bounce back from last week’s results as they both came out with no points in their opening match of the new season.

Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen Prediction & Match Preview

Saturday, August 24 – 09:30 EST – Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena

In their opening match, Hoffenheim conceded a goal in the first minute of play and failed to answer back. A rather disappointing result to start the season at the hands of Frankfurt. It was their fifth straight Bundesliga match that came without a win. They will look to break that streak when they play in front of their home fans on Saturday. Furthermore, there have been a number of changes made to Hoffenheim’s squad in the summer transfer window. We suspect Alfred Shreuder will have a challenge on his hands as he looks to get the squad on the same page.

Werder Bremen, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back. They suffered what was a 3-1 home loss to Fortuna Dusseldorf. They managed to find the equalizer at the beginning of the second half, but that’s about how far they would get in the match. Dusseldorf regained their lead 5 minutes later and then sealed the game in the 64th minute. Expect Werder Bremen to come out stronger and more organized than they were last week as they look to give their fans the chance to celebrate their first win of the season. Werder Bremen are unbeaten in the last 4 matches against Hoffenheim, as they have won 2 and drawn 2 in that span.
