Top facts for match
against Bremen

On Saturday, 30th August, TSG will travel to Werder Bremen's Weserstadion for their first Bundesliga away match of the season (kick-off at 15:30 CEST). The stadium in Bremen has been anything but lucky for TSG in the past, with the Kraichgau club failing to win any of their six top-flight matches there. Markus Gisdol's team lost 3-1 in Bremen last season, despite taking a 1-0 lead.

For all statistic enthusiasts, here are all the match facts ahead TSG's meeting with Werder Bremen:

Did you know that…

… Werder and TSG were the specialists in quickfire doubles on the first matchday?

Werder came back from 2-0 down in 125 seconds thanks to goals from Assani Lukimya and Franco Di Santo. TSG were a bit faster with their two goals though, with the strikes from Adam Szalai and Tarik Elyounoussi just 97 seconds apart. What can we learn from this? Switching off after conceding a goal is not an option.

… Werder hardly take shots on goal?

Werder only took 371 shots last season – on average eleven per match. They only took nine shots during their first match this season. However, 63% of them were on target, which means that TSG goalkeeper Oliver Baumann will have to maintain a high level of concentration, even if there's not much work to do.

TSG's clear-cut-chance-conversion rate is perfect?

Perfection is a strong word. Some say, it's something that is impossible to achieve. TSG proved this wrong in the match against Augsburg. Markus Gisdol's team had two clear-cut chances and they converted them both. The stats speak for themselves – a 100% success rate.

… Werder grant the opposition too many opportunities despite staying compact?

Hertha had 19 shots on Werder's goal on the first matchday – only two other teams allowed as many. TSG are much more solid in comparison, allowing Augsburg just twelve shots.
