Werder Bremen vs Heidenheim Prediction & Betting tips
In 2009, relegation was reintroduced in soccer Germany. Since then, the second division team has only been able to assert itself in three out of eleven cases and make the promotion to the top division perfect. If we look at the odds of the best bookmakers before the upcoming duel between Werder Bremen and Heidenheim, this series could continue in the current season. You can find more quotes in our betting base odds comparison.
The team of coach Florian Kohfeldt is the clear favorite in the two playoffs on Thursday and Monday respectively. At the latest after the impressions of the last regular match day in league one and two, many experts assume that the green-whites have now smelled fuses and still fix the relegation that was hardly considered possible just two weeks ago.
However, what should be considered in the forecast before the first leg between Werder Bremen and Heidenheim is the fact that the greater pressure is of course on the shoulders of the first division team. For the 1st FCH, who was beaten 1-4 in the DFB Cup against the Hanseatic League this season, on the other hand, it may be a unique opportunity to get into the concert of the big players.
Nevertheless, at first glance at the Werder Bremen match against Heidenheim, a tip on the home side turns out to be more attractive, especially since the red-blue from the Swabian Ostalb have never been able to convince abroad.
If one had said to Florian Kohfeldt, Frank Baumann or Marco Bode last Saturday at 3:25 p.m. that their club – in the end even relatively easy – would reach the relegation, the responsible parties would almost have fallen away from the faith. Admittedly, the starting position of the Werder team before the closing day was anything but rosy, but the Hanseatic people had an unforgettable afternoon.
Not only that the Green-Whites celebrated their first home win since September 1st, the way in which the 6-1 win against completely disillusioned Cologne came about, no one would have thought possible beforehand. Because the direct competitor Dusseldorf was the loser at Union Berlin at the same time, the former German champion can dream of staying in the class again.
The important first leg of the relegation is on the program on Thursday evening. There, the team of coach Kohfeldt wants to build on where it left off on Saturday. Between Werder Bremen and Heidenheim, a forecast for the host speaks, among other things, of the higher individual quality, the greater wealth of experience and the sudden increase in self-confidence in connection with the new spirit of optimism.
Statistically, however, should give reason to think that no other Bundesliga club conceded more goals in the course of the season than the men from the Weser. 17th place in the home table with a whopping twelve defeats and more than two goals conceded per game cause one or two worries, which we deliberately neglect due to the changed starting position, the qualitatively inferior opponent and the improved mood.
The winning team from the weekend will have to change Kohfeldt in at least one position. Kevin Vogt is missing due to a yellow card suspension. Otherwise we expect the same starting line-up as in the highest win of the season against Cologne. Also included: Niclas Füllkrug, who is in the relegation for the third time and has been the loser in both previous attempts.
As perfect as the last game day was for Werder Bremen, 1. FC Heidenheim was so lucky. Although the protégés of coach Frank Schmidt lost their away game at the fixed second division champions in Bielefeld 0: 3 without a song, the red and blue benefited from the defeat of Hamburger SV and can therefore continue to hope for the first Bundesliga promotion in the club’s history .
Despite the bumpy season finale with only three wins from seven games, the Swabians absolutely deserved the two finals for the greatest possible success. The Heidenheimers played the best season in their history with 55 points and ultimately only conceded nine losses. The defensive also knew how to please with just 36 goals conceded (second best value in league two).
The biggest weakness in the past year was, however, the encounters abroad. After the restart, the 1st FCH did not celebrate a single three-way in five attempts. In the end, the third placed even one of the weakest away teams in the league, who won only four matches and was the most harmless of the entire House of Commons with just 13 goals.
This poor statistics in the distance alone underscores our assessment that the odds on home victory should pay off between Werder Bremen and Heidenheim. Since the kickers from Brenz have always been at half time in the last six away defeats and never hit one in half in the event of lost matches, it seems advisable to consider the half-time / final result in favor of the SVW.
At least in terms of personnel, the longest-serving coach in German professional football can draw on almost everything. Only Hüsing and Thiel are still missing. Changes in the starting eleven are to be expected, especially since the team in Bielefeld on Sunday did not give the impression that they were up to the pressure.
