This Friday sees Werder go head to head with Hertha at the Wohninvest Weserstadion – Kick-off 8:30pm GMT.

Werder, currently sitting eleventh, host thirteenth placed Hertha on Friday.

Werder Bremen have 15 points to their name, going into this tie

With a win in their previous game, (2-0) against SC Freiburg, Werder will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, Werder will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose two meetings this Bundesliga season. Their position is eleventh in the League and they have 15 points, that is, 4W, 4L and 3D having won four games, drawn three matches, and lost four fixtures.

When Werder host Hertha, they will do so on the back of one victory, one dart, and three losse on their own ground.

Werder Bremen will have 18 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good Attacking Performance

Werder will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (20). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Niclas Fullkrug (8), Marvin Ducksch (2), and Oliver Burke (2). Werder have a poor defensive record so far, having conceded 18 goals in their previous matches.

Werder are likely to be missing three of their key players when they start Friday’s game, due to injury and illness.

With the Bundesliga season well into its stride, Hertha have managed to gain 11 points

Following two straight wins for Hertha in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Also, Hertha are quickly becoming the Bundesliga’s draw specialists, having recorded four in their last six games. Now they have 2 matches won, 4 games lost and 5 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in thirteenth place, with a total of 11 points having won two meetings, drawn five meetings, and lost four fixtures.

Hertha will travel to Werder with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one win, one draw, and three defeat.

Victory for Hertha would take their points tally to 14 so far this season.

Sandro Schwarz could be missing up to three of their players through injury or illness for the game on Friday.
