Werder Bremen Preview – Precarious times for second-bottom Die Werderaner?

The sight of football returning in Germany will come as a welcome relief to everyone associated with the club. Werder Bremen (17th – W4 D6 L14, GF27 GA55) languished in seventeenth at the time of the enforced break and were at serious risk of dropping down a league for the first time in forty years. Now there are ten games to save their season, beginning with a home encounter against whom a creditable 2-2 draw was earned in October.

Although the resumption is a blessing, the situation remains bleak. Only Paderborn are keeping them from the foot of the standings. Mainz occupy the nearest position of safety, in fifteenth, but are eight points better off. Making up four points on Dusseldorf in the relegation play-off spot may well prove their best bet of staving off relegation. Bremen do, however, boast a game in hand over those around them.

In order to produce a great escape, Bremen simply must improve upon results when at home. Florian Kohfeldt is a coach under immense pressure, and rightly so, after overseeing one league win at the Weserstadion all term and where their dismal tally of 5 points from eleven games (W1 D2 L8) is the poorest return of all eighteen teams. To compound their woes, both Claudio Pizarro and Davy Klaasen are unavailable.

Bayer Leverkusen Preview – Bosz’s impressive charges honing in on top four?

When it was announced in March that football was to be put on hold for the foreseeable, Bayer Leverkusen (5th – W14 D5 L6, GF45 GA30) were among the biggest losers from a purely sporting sense. Unbeaten in ten games in all competitions, they had a generous-looking DFB Pokal semi-final with third tier FC Saarbrucken to look forward to as well as one foot in the last-eight of the Europa League, after a 3-1 first leg victory in Scotland against Rangers. Die Werkself were flying.

Of course, the challenge now for coach Peter Bosz will be to help his side pick up exactly where it left off. In the league, seven wins from the last nine seen them surge right back into not only Champions League contention, trailing Gladbach in fourth by two points, but also an outside shot of catching leaders Bayern who boast eight more points but are still to visit BayArena before the season concludes.

Leverkusen will certainly view this opening assignment since the enforced break with relish, facing a team with the poorest home record in the division. Furthermore, only Bayern and Leipzig have claimed more points on the road so far, with their seven wins from twelve away outings (W7 D1 L4) holding them in good stead for a fixture which seen them hit six goals in a 6-2 victory inside Weserstadion last season.

Betting Advice for Werder Bremen Vs Bayer Leverkusen

A stoppage will have worked more in Bremen‘s favour, that is for sure, after winning none of their last six league contests (D1 L5) to drop into the league’s bottom two. By contrast, Leverkusen has a ten-game unbeaten run in all competitions abruptly halted and must quickly regain lost momentum if they’re to maintain their push towards the top of the table.

Werder Bremen Vs Bayer Leverkusen Key Facts

  • No team has registered fewer points (5), wins or scored less goals (8) from their home games this season than Werder Bremen (W1 D2 L9 at home).
  • Bayer Leverkusen have collected more points on their travels this season than all bar two other sides (W7 D1 L4 away).
  • These teams shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw earlier in the season, although Leverkusen did run out convincing 6-2 winners at Bremen in 2018/19.


Everything to play for then, which could lead to a competitive affair. Not that last season’s corresponding fixture bore much of that as Leverkusen ran out comfortable 6-2 winners. A similar outcome cannot be ruled out on recent form either: Bremen have been woeful at home all season, winning just once whilst failing to even score in their last five such games.
