Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Werder Bremen and Hamburger SV, the two old rivals, face each other in the 2. Bundesliga derby. Die Werderaner rolled over both Hansa Rostock an Ingolstadt by three goals to nil in the previous two league fixtures, with the team climbing to third position in the standings. Werder Bremen are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach, and we predict that they will find the net in Saturday’s showdown.
All Oscar Schoenfelder, Felix Agu, Leonardo Bittencourt, and Thore Jacobsen are all out of contention with injures. HSV, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a 2-1 win over Sandhausen, with the team having no fewer than 25 goal attempts. Given Hamburger’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.
