Did you know that…
…TSG have been very successful in Bremen in recent years?
Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their last six visits to the Hanseatic City of Bremen (W4 D2). TSG's last defeat away to Werder came on 19 April 2014, when they lost 3-1.
…Werder tend to struggle at home generally?
Bremen had the second-worst home record in the Bundesliga last term. Coach Florian Kohfeldt's charges won only two of their 17 games in their own stadium, drawing three and losing 12. In addition, the Green & Whites only scored more than one goal on two occasions.
…Bremen are ruthless in front of goal this season?
Werder have converted 67% of their major goalscoring chances this season. That's the highest value of any Bundesliga club after four rounds of matches. TSG occupy 10th position with a 40% conversion rate.
…two TSG players scored their last Bundesliga goal to date against Bremen?
Both Sargis Adamyan and Håvard Nordtveit could make their Bundesliga comebacks on Sunday following long spells out injured. The TSG duo have fond memories of facing Werder Bremen: Adamyan's last goal in the German top flight came in the 3-0 victory over the Green & Whites in the second half of last season, while Nordtveit last netted in the Bundesliga in February 2016 – against Bremen, during his time at Borussia Mönchengladbach.
…several players will be facing their former clubs?
TSG Hoffenheim will be going up against two of their former players, Davie Selke and Leonardo Bittencourt. Selke played in the TSG youth setup between 2009 and 2013, while Bittencourt was a Hoffenheim player in the 2018/19 campaign. In addition, Kevin Vogt spent the second half of last season on loan at Werder.
