On Sunday, starting with 17:00, the Bremen – Hoffenheim match will be played, within the 5th round of the Bundesliga. Hoffenheim is defeated away by Bremen in the last 6 matches. Last season, TSG won 3-0 away and 3-2 at home, ending a 4-match winless series with the “white-greens” in all competitions.
Bremen did not lose in the Bundesliga from the first stage, registering victories with Schalke, score 3-1 and Bielefeld, score 1-0, and with Freiburg they drew, score 1-1. Florian Kohfeldt’s students have 7 points obtained in the first 4 rounds, due to which they are located on the 7th place in the ranking, 3 points away from the leader Leipzig. Bremen escaped relegation last season after a play-off draw with Heidenheim, which ended 0-0 and 2-2.
Hoffenheim comes after a hard-fought victory in the Europa League groups, 2-0 with Red Star Belgrade, the successes of the Germans being signed after the Serbs remained numerically inferior. The team prepared by Sebastian Hoeneß thus interrupted the negative series, after the defeats with Frankfurt, score 1-2 and Dortmund, score 0-1. In the Bundesliga, Hoffenheim has 6 points and is ranked 8th, being next to the ranking with the opponent on Sunday.
Hoffenheim’s excellent record with Bremen forces her to obtain a new positive result. It will not be easy, Bremen play better than last season, but TSG is a more valuable team at the moment, with or without Kramaric (uncertain).
