Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football game between Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim will bring down the curtain on the Bundesliga round 26. Die Werderaner were involved in some high-scoring games before the international break, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in home team will be Niclas Fullkrug, who scored a brace for Germany in a 2-0 win over Peru, while defensive duo Felix Agu – Milos Veljkovic remains in the recovery room. Both goalkeepers Dudu and Michael Zetterer are rated doubtful for the match.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin which saw them put an end to their seven-game losing run. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s troops, though, suffered a loss in each of their last six away matches, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. As for the away team, Munas Dabbur is banned for the match, while all Kasper Dolberg, Justin Che, Jacob Bruun Larsen, and Grischa Promel remain in the recovery room.
