Hertha Berlin – Capital club faltering after one win in seven?

After three games without so much as a goal scored let alone a win, will Hertha Berlin (W4 D5 L8) rediscover the swagger that seen them net four times in a comfortable victory in Bremen when these sides met on the opening weekend of the season? That day, head coach Bruno Labbadia could boast four different goalscorers but is now struggling to find one who is willing and capable of rising to the occasion.

It is a club which could still be dragged into a fight for German top-flight survival unless performances and, most importantly, results improve. Tuesday’s 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Hoffenheim left them with one point from the last nine, having won only once in the past seven league games (W1 D3 L3) – that a regulation 3-0 scoreline against a Schalke outfit still on their long winless run at the time.

If this fixture’s recent history is anything to go by, there could be more frustration ahead for Labbadia and his players. That aforementioned Matchday 1 success remains Hertha Berlin’s sole victory over Werder Bremen in the side’s last fourteen meetings, while they last claimed the spoils here at Olympiastadion – where they have won only twice so far in 2020/21 (W2 D2 L4) – with a 3-2 scoreline in December 2013.

Werder Bremen – Defensive improvements standing them in good stead?

Another spirited display in the face of adversity, this time as big outsiders on the road against Borussia Monchengladbach, went unrewarded on this occasion as Werder Bremen (W4 D6 L7) fell to a 1-0 defeat inside Borussia-Park on Tuesday. Having faced four of last season’s top-five away from home already, the sight of an out-of-form Hertha Berlin should come as some relief to Florian Kohfeldt.

Indeed, Bremen’s record of having avoided losing on each of their last six visits to Hertha Berlin should only reinforce the belief that this team is more than capable of collecting their third away win of the campaign. Particularly as their previous two successes have come against sides wallowing in the Bundesliga’s lower reaches: FSV Mainz (0-1) and Schalke (1-3), who are 17th and 18th respectively.

Die Werderaner can also be heartened by their recent upturn in form. Seven points from their last five Bundesliga (W2 D1 L2) is more than they managed in nine previous rounds (D5 L4). However, the biggest praise is reserved for the defence. Just four goals conceded across their last five encounters is seriously impressive, especially considering that two of those were away at Leverkusen (1-1) and Gladbach.

Hertha Berlin Vs Werder Bremen Betting Advice

With one win from their last seven league games, no goal in the last three, and having beaten their upcoming opponents only once in the past fourteen Bundesliga encounters between the sides, there must surely be more appealing favourites over the course of this weekend than Hertha Berlin. We must also factor in the recent improvements made by Werder Bremen who have tightened up considerably at the back.


Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen Key Facts:

  • One win in seven Bundesliga games (W1 D3 L3) for Hertha Berlin, who have struggled in front of goal recently, netting none in their last three matches (D1 L2).
  • Those issues in the final third could be exacerbated by a Werder Bremen side which has restricted their previous five Bundesliga opponents to four goals between them (W2 D1 L2).
  • All but one of the last six Bundesliga head-to-head encounters in Berlin have ended in stalemate, with all of those draws scoring ones (1-1 x3, 2-2 x2).


With four goals conceded in the last five league games, Bremen will fancy their chances of nullifying a Hertha attack which has fired a blank in three successive Bundesliga outings. However Bremen, with four scored in those five games, have not exactly been firing on all cylinders either. Under 2.5 appeals, then, as does the draw – an outcome that has landed in all but one of the past six head-to-head meetings in Berlin.
