• Hoffenheim have won just one of their 11 competitive meetings with Bremen (D3 L7); a 4-1 Bundesliga home win on August 21st 2010.
  • Along with that win, there has also been one draw and three defeats at home for TSG against Bremen. The last two matches in Sinsheim have been won by Werder (4-1 in December 2012, 2-1 in August 2011).
  • It’s the first time since February/March 2013 that TSG have lost three games in a row. 14th is their worst position in the table so far this season.
  • Werder have lost three of their last four Bundesliga matches and have celebrated just one win in their last seven games (D3 L3) – a 3-2 victory against Hannover on matchday 11.
  • TSG have lost their last three Bundesliga home games. Their only longer run was at the end of the first half of the 2012/13 season (4 successive home defeats). Markus Babbel was relieved of his duties after the third home defeat (4-1 to Bremen).
  • Since a 3-0 home win against Düsseldorf in April 2013 in Gisdol’s first game as TSG manager, Hoffenheim have conceded at least one goal in 19 consecutive top-flight matches. It’s the longest run without a clean sheet in Hoffenheim’s Bundesliga history.
  • With 30 goals conceded, Hoffenheim have the worst defence in the league together with HSV. TSG have also conceded 16 goals in their seven home games – a league high.
  • Dutt’s side have conceded 11 goals in their last four league matches (an average of 2.8 goals per game) – they had only conceded 12 goals in the nine matches before then (an average of 1.3 per game).
  • 10 of the 23 goals that Bremen have conceded have come from crosses (43%) – both the highest amount and the highest percentage in the league. Two of the three goals they conceded against Mainz on matchday 13 also came from crosses.
  • Franco Di Santo grabbed both his first Bundesliga goal and assist in the 3-2 loss to Mainz. The Argentine will hope he can add more goals, with Bremen’s tally of 15 goals their worst since scoring just 14 in 13 games in the 1997/98 season.
