Heidenheim (dpa) – The 0-0 in the first leg leaves both Werder Bremen and 1. FC Heidenheim all chances. Monday (8.30pm / DAZN and Amazon Prime), it will be decided who will complete the Bundesliga in the new season.
Does Werder avoid the first relegation in 40 years? Or will Heidenheim ascend to the upper house for the first time?
THAT SPEAKS FOR HEIDENHEIM
The home worker speaks for the first FC Heidenheim. The team of coach Frank Schmidt last lost a match in their own stadium in the 2nd Bundesliga on October 6, 2019. Twelve games followed without defeat. In addition, the FCH had the best defense in the 2nd division with 36 goals against champion Arminia Bielefeld. The outsider must also be assigned the roles: Heidenheim can in principle only win something, while Werder can lose a lot. The FCH, which still played in the Oberliga when Schmidt took office in September 2007, can therefore play for free. Even if the pressure has increased.
That speaks for Bremen
Fortunately not in the Weserstadion! Werder could take advantage of the return match in Heidenheim. With victories in Freiburg, Schalke and Paderborn, the green whites laid the foundation for being part of the relegation. At home, however, as with the 0-0 in the first leg, it often did not fit very well. In Kevin Vogt, a physically and mentally strong player returns after his yellow card suspension. Despite the absence of suspended captain Niklas Moisander, trainer Florian Kohfeldt doesn’t have as many alternatives as the entire season. After the weak first leg, he can respond – and he should. Players like Leonardo Bittencourt or the restored Ömer Toprak are on fire.
