The second match between Heidenheim and Werder takes place on July 6. Which of these clubs is worthy enough to play in the Bundesliga next season?
On July 2, in the first leg of the Bundesliga Playoffs Werder tried to avoid the drop, while Heidenheim looked to achieve promotion to the Bundesliga. The game was not the most exciting to watch and ended in a scoreless draw. During the whole match Werder managed to make only 2 shots on goal. Heidenheim didn’t even attempt to attack the opponents’ goal. But it wasn’t just the absence of goals that confused the viewers, but also Werder’s game itself. They were the favourites of that match. However, not only the players were barely moving on the field, but also the defender Niklas Moisander received a second yellow card at the 87th minute and will miss the next match.
So, everything will be decided in the second leg on July 6.
Werder, occupying the 16th place, miraculously took the playoff spot from Fortuna Dusseldorf on the final evening of the season. Meanwhile, Heidenheim finished 3rd in the 2.Bundesliga and earned a chance to fight for a spot in the main league.
The Green-Whites are again considered to be the favourites of the upcoming battle. Once they showed brilliant results. Founded in 1899, the club won German Championship 4 times and the DFB- Pokal, known as German Cup, 6 times. Fans would certainly like to see Bremen among the leaders again. They deserved it with their long-time experience and achievements, while Heidenheim 1846 never played in the top division.
So, let’s rely on the statistics, which say that Werder are more successful in away games than at home. Besides, the team should really be more motivated for this match. The odds for the victory of Werder Bremen are 2.07.
Good luck to the Green-Whites and to all of us!
