Herta – Werder 13.12.2013
SV Werder Bremen will not think nother thing but to clean their image after the 7-0 home defeat
in the last Bundesliga game against the leaders FC Bayern München, when they face Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion tonight. They started the season defeating Eintracht Braunschweig and FC Augsburg but it was not their real level as they are now in the 14th place, just five points up the relegation zone.
Their last performance was sometimes ridiculous, and the result could only be the heaviest defeat ever of Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga history. Bayern is the German giant without discussion. Maybe the approach of Werder Bremen to the game was too soft playing against the team of the moment. Werder Bremen wanted to face them eyes in the eyes. The result is already known. Face Bayern is not the same as face the other teams.
But we cannot say that the last performance was a isolate bad performance as Werder Bremen is really making a bad season. Bremenin the 13 games only could win two times, losing four of their last six games and they already 34 goals in the 15 games they played. They have like this the second worst defense, only behind Hoffenheim, who conceded 35 goals this season.
Match: Herta – Werder 20.30h
League: Germany Bunders League
Our prediction: Home Win Odds: 1.65
The positive to them is that they have a similar offensive scoring capacity as today’s opponent Hertha Berlin, but Hertha Berlin is being much more solid, with a good defensive record, which makes them fight for a place in Europe. They have 22 points and if they defeat Werder Bremen, with 25 points they will climb to the sixth place, waiting for the result of Schalke, who only plays next Sunday, receiving Augsburg.
The European ambitions of Hertha Berlin are solid. They also want to give a joy to their fans in this last home game before the wnter break. And as they failed to win their last three home games, it’s time to back to win. In general, despite the negative results, they dominate the games but they gave chances to their opponents. But if they play tonight at the same level that they performed in their last game, 2-0 at Braunschweig, they will be really favorite to win this game.
