Our football match prediction:
Weserstadion will host Saturday’s football match between Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim. Die Werderaner are desperate to secure yet another Bundesliga survival, but they are on a very difficult quest in the 2017/2018 season. Florian Kohfeldt’s men sit in bottom three in the Bundesliga standings ahead of Saturday’s football match against Hoffenheim, but they have been in a fine form of late. Werder Bremen suffered only one loss in previous four league fixtures and they did well to crush Twente (4-0) in a warm-up game at the weekend. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, are eyeing a place in the Champions League and, taking everything into account, both sides are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Weserstadion clash. A lively contest is on the cards and we predict both teams will find the net on Matchday 18. In their last meeting in Bremen, speaking of Bundesliga fixtures, Hoffenheim recorded a 5-3 win over Werder.
