WERDER BREMEN V HEIDENHEIM

A recurring theme in more recent Werder Bremen games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their prior 6 clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a losing one. That kind of pattern might not be carried forward into this game, however.

The stats don’t lie, and Heidenheim have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 5 goals overall. At the back, Heidenheim can certainly do much better.
Prediction: Both teams to score
