Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Werder Bremen will look to make amends for back-to-back losses to HSV and Dynamo Dresden when they host Heidenheim to their Weserstadion on Friday. Die Werderaner suffered a dip in form, but it seems as if their displays are much better than the results. The good news for the hosts is that midfielder Christian Gross returns from suspension. Werder are eyeing their only second home win of the process.
Heidenheim, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the 2. Bundesliga. Frank Schmidt’s troops are only two points behind league leaders Regensburg, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Heidenheim forward Stefan Schimmer is pushing for a start after scoring the winner against the Lilywhites at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Theodor Gebre Selassie):
Born to Ethiopian father and Czech mother, Theodor Gebre Selassie was the first ever player of African descent to represent the Czech Republic national team when he was handed his debut back in 2011. The right-sided defender has since done well to nail down a regular starting berth and went on to play at the Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 finals.
Gebre Selassie represented the likes of Vysocina Jihlava, Velke Mezirici, Slavia Prague and Slovan Liberec, before the solid showing at the 2012 European Championship helped him earn a move to Werder Bremen.
The right back has performed well at the Weserstadion, but he eventually lost his place in the Czech Republic starting XI, making just three appearances during the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. However, having amassed over 30 appearances for the national team with a proud history, he can be quite satisfied with how his international career has panned out so far, while there is still time to further raise his stock.
