Friday Bundesliga match Hertha Berlin v Werder Bremen
There is one Bundesliga match being played tonight, Hertha Berlin is hosting Werder Bremen in the Olympia stadium. Hertha managed a win away to Augsburg last weekend, it was perhaps a bit lucky result, but as the club is one of those expected to fight to avoid relegation they will need all the points they can get.
In today’s match Hertha Berlin will have to do without Beerens (red card in last match). The young and talented Schulz has left the club (he played for 30 mins last match), and players Ronny and Cigerci are also unavailable (though they did not play last match either). In addition there are a couple of reserves unavailable, though that should not affect the team quality.
In their season opener Werder Bremen lost by three goals against Schalke. But the result was perhaps a bit misleading, as Bremen did not play that poorly and created several chances (16 shots but only 2 on goal). They lost their former striker Di Santo to Schalke before the season, and could have used his goal scoring skills in this match! Werder Bremen will probably field the same team in tonight’s match, but their important offensive midfielder Fin Bartels is very doubtful.
This fixture last season ended 2-2. Hertha started the match best, scoring the first two goals and was seemingly in control. But Werder Bremen fought back and managed a tie in the end.
We believe that Werder Bremen is the best team over all, and should finish the season higher on the table compared to Hertha Berlin. But Bremen do have some work to do, especially when it comes to the offensive play. They lost possession too easily against aggressive Schalke players, and this is probably something that Hertha Berlin has noticed and will try to take advantage. Hertha Berlin’s team seems more settled compared to Bremen, and they have extra confidence due to the first round win. So if you are looking for a pre-match bet on the game, consider taking Hertha Berlin at 11/0 (2.10) with BetVictor.
Our best recommendation is to watch this match and consider a live bet. If Werder Bremen continue the trend from the first match by giving away possession too easily and not converting their chances, then a live bet on the home win will be attractive. Most likely we will wait until the Asian handicap line is around -0.25 and 19/20 to 1/1 (1.95 to 2.00) and then take the bet.
