Our football match prediction:
Both Werder Bremen and Hamburger are determined to secure the Bundesliga survival. Werder were struggling to find their form in the first half of the season, but they have been producing scintillating performances in the German top flight in 2017. Following three consecutive wins over the likes of Leipzig, Freiburg and Schalke die Werderaner shared the spoils with Eintracht in Frankfurt at the weekend, but it has to be noted that they dropped a two-goal advantage in Friday’s football game. Hamburger desperately needed a win against Hoffenheim and they managed to get one. Die Rothosen escaped the relegation zone, but their Bundesliga status is still in great danger. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, but seeing that Weserstadion will host Sunday’s relegation six-pointer, we predict that the hosts, who have been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks, will return to winning ways on Matchday 29.
