The match between Werder Bremen vs Heidenheim will be played on Thursday, July 2 2020, at Weserstadion in Bremen. It is the first round of the double meeting between the two, which will decide the last team that will participate in the next edition of the Bundesliga.
Werder Bremen can defend its place in the Bundesliga
Werder Bremen managed to get the presence at the dam after the results from the last stage of the Bundesliga. He benefited from the fairness of the Union Berlin team, which did not allow Fortune Dusseldorf to win the necessary points. A very weak season can be saved if Werder Bremen pass Heidenheim. In the last two stages he managed to recover and achieved two successes in the score, with Paderborn (5-1) and FC Cologne (6-1). Niclas Füllkrug is the replacement. He entered each of the last four matches, after an injury that kept him on the sidelines for nine months. He scored twice in the 109 minutes he was on the field. Milot Rashica remains the team’s top scorer, with eight successes this season.
- Probable team (3-4-3): Pavlenka – Veljkovic, Bargfrede, Moisander – Selassie, Eggestein, Klaassen, Friedl – Osako, Füllkrug, Rashica
Heidenheim, a surprise qualification at the dam
Heidenheim stayed close to the top three for most of the season. He hoped that the chance would come to pass in front of him and he succeeded. Decisive was the direct victory in the match with Hamburg (2-1), from the penultimate stage of the Bundesliga 2. It is interesting that he did not give up even if the opponent led 0-1. He equalized quite late, in the 80th minute, but even in this situation he is behind the opponent. He continued to attack, benefiting from the passivity of the opponent who remained in front and tied. He scored the decisive goal in the last phase of the match, in the 95th minute. In the last stage he played with the leader Arminia Bielefeld and lost 0-3. However, Hamburg failed to win with Sandhausen (1-5), in a match played on their own field, and allowed the opponent to stay ahead. Tim Kleindienst is the main scorer, with fourteen goals scored.
- Probable team: (4-2-2-2): Muller – Busch, Mainka, beermann, Theuerkauf – Dorsch, Griesbeck – Kerschbaumer, Leipertz – Thomalla, Kleindienst
Werder Bremen vs Heidenheim Picks
Bremen is in very good shape, as we have seen in recent matches. He can try to take a serious option to win this double. Meet an opponent without great results on the road. He has won only four times in the seventeen matches played on the opponent’s pitches. I saw that he could not win even when he needed a victory, as happened in the last stage in Bielefeld. The two teams met once again in November 2019, in the cup, also in Bremen. Then Werder won 4-1, but stopped the engines at the break, when he was leading 4-0. We are expecting a victory for the hosts.
Our Prediction: 1
