Bremen – The defense is the showpiece of SV Werder Bremen this season, but it is precisely this part of the team that causes a bit of concern before the Bundesliga game on Sunday at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
Left-back Ludwig Augustinsson was absent from the final training session in Bremen on Saturday afternoon and is likely to be out due to his calf problems. Felix Agu should be in the for him Starting XI move. And Niklas Moisander left the training pitch with a bump on his head, which the central defender cooled with an ice bag. His involvement in Sinsheim should not be endangered.
Moisander is currently not a regular player, but could still be very important in defense against Hoffenheim. Because Marco Friedl and Milos Veljkovic were injured in the 0-0 win against Freiburg. The y got fit just in time, did not return to the team until the final training session and will therefore begin around 1899 – alongside defender Ömer Toprak, of course. The odor Gebre Selassie and Agu will turn the three-man chain into a five-man chain when the opponent has possession and otherwise a lot of steam on the flanks. Before that, Maximilian Eggestein, Kevin Möhwald and Romano Schmid should be in the midfield of the SV Werder Bremen the picture.
Werder Bremen line-up against Hoffenheim: Niclas Füllkrug not yet fit enough for the starting line-up
And in the storm? Only Milot Rashica is actually there. Josh Sargent has slowly gambled away his credit because, despite all the zeal, he is simply too safe in front of the goal – and that is one of the core competencies of an attacker. But the real alternatives are missing. Davie Selke is not at all in shape and Niclas Füllkrug is still not fit enough for that after his ankle injury Starting XI from Werder Bremen. After all, the striker could finally celebrate his comeback – and the opponent is not entirely inconvenient for him. He scored three goals in his seven encounters with Hoffenheim and prepared another goal. (knee)
