Werder Bremen – 1899 Hoffenheim – In the winter break these two teams left with a completely different mood, because Werder is again in trouble and in a position to lead the game for survival, while Hoffenheim with 11 points more in a position very close to the European . Prior to the break, Werder even raised his form and was only defeated once in the last four wins, and won the quarterfinals of the Cup. Hoffenheim had earlier dropped out of the Cup, as well as from the European League and in the previous three wins were defeated twice.
