Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 Bundesliga match:
A place in the Bundesliga 2020/21 season will be at stake when Heidenheim and Werder Bremen face each other at Voith-Arena in the relegation playoffs, return leg. The two teams played out a goalless draw at Weserstadion in the first leg, with Werder Bremen failing to create a descent goal-scoring opportunity. Die Werderaner failed to impress in the first leg, and, to make things even worse for them, experienced defender Niklas Moisander will miss Monday’s clash through suspension.
Heidenheim, on the other hand, looked solid at the back in the first leg, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the Voith-Arena showdown. Yet another close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Defender Arne Feick and midfielder Maximilian Thiel are both sidelined with injury for the home team.
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.
