Raphael Wolf in teams injury list.
Hoffenheim stands in 14th place in Bundesliga with 0-1-2 in first three matches. Sadly, team lost 1-2 to Bayern Munich at home, when Lewandovski got secong goal for Bayern in 90th minute and from minute 72 Bayern played with 10 men, because of Boateng red card. Manager Markus Gisdol's system is very versatile and can easily be switched to a 4-4-2 with a midfield diamond, with Kevin Volland playing as a second striker and Steven Zuber filling in behind him. All in all, Hoffenheim have no reason to make further changes.
Werder, meanwhile, stands one position in front with 1-1-1. Team got shocked hard in seasons opener, when they lost at home 0-3 to Schalke 04. Up front, Aron Johannsson will most likely partner Anthony Ujah again, with Fin Bartels remaining on the bench. Club hero Claudio Pizarro returned to the club for his third spell this week, but needs to work on his fitness, before being an option for the starting XI.
Werder Bremen are undefeated in their last 9 matches against Hoffenheim in all competitions. Werder Bremen have scored at least 2 goals in their last 4 away matches against Hoffenheim in all competitions. Werder Bremen have failed to win their last 6 away matches in the Bundesliga.
Both teams are great in scoring, but not in lead defending. Hoffenheim is very weak in aerial duels and Werder could use it for fast starts of attacks. Werder players, meanwhile, often makes individual errors. Expect this to be an open game from the outset, with several chances on both ends of the pitch.
