Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hertha Berlin and Werder Bremen go head to head at Olympiastadion in the Bundesliga round 18. The capital club have been struggling in front of goal in 2021, with the team failing to find the net in the previous three league fixtures. Since Hertha experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the midweek defeat (0-3) to Hoffenheim, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on home soil. The likes of Boyata, Dardai, Dilrosun, Lowen, and Plattenhardt are all out of contention with injuries.
Die Werderaner, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Borussia M’gladbach. Werder Bremen have been playing some low-scoring games of late, and given Hertha’s difficulties in front of goal, under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Woltemade remains quarantined, while Augustinsson, Erras, Fullkrug, and Gross are all sidelined with injuries.
