Hannover vs Werder Bremen: Top Free Betting Tips
Hannover's chances for anything this season are minimal at this point – they exist mathematically but physically are impossible. Werder Bremen, however, are just 3 points behind the 3rd place and with a few wins and some luck, can reach the top of the table.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Hannover is the team that has had the lowest number of goals in their games this season – 36 in 17 games. That makes for about 2.1 goals on average per game and they also have had the lowest number of over 2.5 games – 7/17.
Werder Bremen are quite the opposite – the team has had 3.1 goals on average in their games and 12/17 over 2.5s – in fact, 8/9 away games this season. So, you can decide for yourself but we see this derby as a different game than usual, and both teams will be very motivated to get the three points. Hannover have had just 2/8 home games with over 2.5 goals while 5/8 ended with under 1.5 goals.
Match Result – Draw
Hannover and Werder Bremen played once already this season and the game ended in a 1:1 draw. We honestly expect the same outcome for this match as the teams are fairly equal in strength and this match has a different feeling since the teams have a lot of history between them. Hannover have improved significantly at home and have not lost in 3 rounds while Werder are one of the stronger away teams in the league with 4/2/3 in 9 games. There is no logic in the sequence of results in their case, so this match might go in any direction. We pick the draw option and hope that Hannover don't end up with a lot of covid cases that will compromise their chances.
Double Chance / Total Goals – Tie or Werder Bremen and Over 1.5
So, we pick the under 2.5 option but we also believe there will be two goals in the match – whether it is 1:1 or 0:2. In each case, we expect Werder to be the better team on the pitch and the one that will have the most chances. So, apart from the clean draw, we pick this safer option, which includes the double chance. Werder have had just one 0:0 match away from home this season and the same goes for Hannover in their home games.
