Werder Bremen Prediction

As mentioned, Werder Bremen are on a decent run of form at the moment which has seen the hosts string together a seven match sequence without defeat, a run of matches which has seen Werder Bremen gain wins over Hannover 96 and Augsburg, but also involved in five draws within this period too.

Interestingly, all five of these recent stalemates have resulted in score-draws, with a 2-2 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt along with 1-1 draws with Nurnberg, Hertha Berlin, Stuttgart and Wolfsburg respectively.

The hosts possess a fairly reasonable home record which stands at 4-5-3 22/19 where Werder Bremen are unbeaten in their last five matches, but although this looks fairly solid, the hosts are also prone to conceding goals too.

Indeed, 10 of their 12 home matches to date in the Bundesliga have seen both teams score as the hosts have managed just two clean sheets on home turf all season. At the other end, midfielders Eggestein (5 goals) and Rashica (4 goals) along with forward Kruse (5 goals) look the most likely anytime goalscorers for Werder Bremen.


Key-Facts – Werder Bremen v Schalke

  • 10 of Werder Bremen’s 12 home matches have seen both teams score
  • Werder Bremen have kept just 2 clean sheets at home all season
  • 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides have seen both teams score


Schalke Prediction

Schalke occupy a worrying 14th place on the Bundesliga ladder and possess a four point cushion ahead of third from bottom club Stuttgart who occupy the relegation play-off spot ahead of their trip to Bremen on Friday night.

Recent results suggest that Schalke could well struggle in this clash with Werder Bremen on Friday night as the visitors have now gone six league matches without a win in the Bundesliga which includes four defeats to Borussia Moenchengladbach, Bayern Munich, Mainz 05 and Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The visitors also possess an ordinary looking away record that stands at 2-4-6 12/19 which includes recent back-to-back defeats at Bayern Munich and Mainz 05, but although overall form has been poor on the road, both teams have scored in 7 of their 12 away matches to date.

Schalke’s goalscoring threats take the shape of midfielders Caligiuri (4 goals) and Bentaleb (3 goals) along with forward Skrzybski (3 goals), and the visitors will no doubt be keen to put some further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone here this evening.

Betting Tips Verdict

Werder Bremen are pretty solid at home although they have the tendency to concede goals while Schalke will want to move further away from the bottom three here. Both teams to score looks likely here.
