Watch: Previous meeting: Hoffenheim 1-2 Bremen
Hope for Hoffenheim
Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their last seven Bundesliga visits to Bremen, winning two and drawing five. Against no other club do they have such a positive balance.
Bremen forwards Marvin Ducksch and Niclas Füllkrug are the Bundesliga's best strike duo this season with a combined goal tally of 23. Ducksch has scored more in the second half of the campaign (five) than Füllkrug (four).
Away day blues
Hoffenheim have lost each of their last six away matches in the Bundesliga, an unwanted club record.
