Hertha are 14th with 17 points from 17 games, just one point and one place behind Saturday’s visitors, although both will be equally keen to pull away from the relegation playoff spot.

Hertha Berlin vs Werder Bremen build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
A 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim last time out was a new low for Bruno Labbadia, who must surely be worrying about his future as Hertha Berlin manager.
Die Alte Dame have won just one of their last seven Bundesliga games, with that solitary victory coming against bottom-of-the-league Schalke at the start of January. As a result, Hertha sit just two points clear of the relegation playoff spot, with confidence seeping away from Labbadia’s squad with every passing match.
That said, things aren’t much better for Werder Bremen. While they’ve taken seven points from their last five Bundesliga matches, Florian Kohfeldt’s side are only one point better off than Hertha, thanks largely to a 10-game winless run between October 7th and December 15th.
Die Werderaner battled hard against Gladbach last time out but were ultimately unable to avoid falling to a 1-0 defeat.
- Hertha Berlin (vs Hoffenheim): Schwolow; Pekarik, Stark, Alderete, Mittelstadt; Tousart; Darida, Guendouzi; Cunha; Piatek, Cordoba.
- Werder Bremen (vs Gladbach): Pavlenka; Veljkovic, Toprak, Friedl; Gebre Selassie, Eggestein, Mohwald, Mbom, Agu; Sargent, Schmid.
Javairô Dilrosun is still sidelined with a knee injury while Santiago Ascacibar, Matheus Cunha, Dedryck Boyata, Jessic Ngankam, Marvin Plattenhardt and Eduard Lowen are all doubts.
Meanwhile, Patrick Erras and Niclas Fullkrug are injured for Werder Bremen, with doubts over the fitness of Milot Rashica, Milos Veljkovic, Christian Groß and Ludwig Augustinsson.

Players to watch:
- Hertha Berlin: Labbadia’s side have failed to score in each of their last three matches, putting even more pressure an already-busy defence. With their best hope of results now coming from keeping a clean sheet, the role of Niklas Stark becomes that much more important. The German centre-back has won more aerial duels (40) and made more interceptions (28) than any other Hertha player, while only two of his teammates have made more clearances (34). Stark is little more ‘no-nonsense’ than most modern centre-backs, but that might be exactly what Hertha need to guide them through this rough patch and away from the relegation battle.
- Werder Bremen: His return of just one goal in 16 Bundesliga games might paint a poor picture but make no mistake, Josh Sargent has been one of the few bright sparks in a tough season for Werder Bremen. The United States international is showing all the hallmarks of an elite multi-faceted forward, using intelligent movement and excellent ball-playing skills to provide a real focal point for Kohfeldt’s men. Sargent has created a team-high 19 chances so far in 2020/21 with two leading to assists, while no Werder player has completed more than his 14 take-ons. What’s more, when Werder have had to go a little more direct, Sargent has stood up to the challenge, winning 24 aerial duels — only four teammates have won more. Admittedly, Sargent has missed more big chances (4) than any other Werder player this season and his Expected Goals tally of 3.94 suggests he should have found the net with more regularity. However, at just 20 years old, Sargent still has plenty to learn and if he can refine his touch in front of goal, Werder should fly up the table.
