Werder Bremen vs Hertha BSC / Bundesliga – The first match of the Bundesliga’s 5th round that will be played this week is at the same time the derby. It wasn’t expected that Werder and Hertha will start this well after modest previous season but for the time being Hertha is positioned right behind leading Bayern, while Werder is also very good and occupied the fourth place. The two teams have in common that are still undefeated and had won in the previous round. Both their head-to-head played last season were draws.
Werder Bremen vs Hertha BSC begins 25.09.2018 at 18:30 CET
Two wins and two draws in the league, and triumph in the first round of the DFB-Pokal are Werder’s results at the beginning of season. After a couple of years this is beginning with which everyone should be satisfied. It is interesting that Werder won both times outside its stadium and drew two times at it. The result of those draws in Bremen was identical 1-1 and both times Bremen was a favourite to win as its rivals were Hannover and Nurnberg. They played away with Eintracth and Augsburg and both matches were interesting, especially duel with Augsburg in the previous round.
They had a lead in Frankfurt but were conceded a goal when they had player more on the pitch, while in the finish they set the final 2-1. In Augsburg, Werder had a lead of 2-0 and the home team managed to equalise but thanks to Klassen, who came to Bremen this summer, Werder won 3-2. Harnik and injured Osaka didn’t play then and instead Kainz and Pizarro got chance. The two of them were assistants in first two goals, which is why we expect to see them again in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Werder Bremen: Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander, Augustinsson – Bargfrede – M. Eggestein, Klaassen – M. Kruse, Kainz – Pizarro
The most pleasant surprise this season is still Hertha. They started the new season without much pomp and famous new names, in fact they had problems with injuries and many predicted for them a place around middle of table. After four rounds Hertha occupies the second place with three wins and one draw, despite that schedule was everything but not easy. In the first round they luckily won Nurnberg 1-0, which was followed by great victory over Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen although the final 2-0 looks much better than their performances in that match.
In the third round they drew away with Wolfsburg 2-2 after dramatic finish, while in the previous round Hertha played an excellent match against Borussia M’gladbach and won 4-2. They received a goal from penalty after 30 minutes of match but then it could be seen that Hertha in fact is beaming with self-confidence as it turned the result up-side down in just five minutes. It is very good that forward Ibisevic plays well, who scored two goals. Manager Dardai had sent Lustenberger on the pitch instead of injured Torunarighe, and now Sjelbred will replace injured Grujic.
Probable lineups Hertha BSC: Jarstein – Lazaro, Lustenberger, Stark, Plattenhardt – Maier, Skjelbred – Kalou, Duda, Dilrosun – Ibisevic
Werder Bremen vs Hertha BSC PICK
Werder plays a bit better outside its stadium although they are still undefeated, just like Hertha which can be totally worry-free as this away match. That is why we expect to score and the same goes for Werder, as it had not problems scoring at the beginning of season.
