Werder Bremen Preview – Can Werder put their league worries behind them and make it through to the next round?

Now past the halfway stage of the Bundesliga season and Werder Bremen are very much involved in a battle for survival. They sit third bottom which equates to a two-legged relegation playoff. What’s even more concerning for Florian Kohfeldt is that they are just one point outside of the automatic relegation spots.

Bremen did return from the winter break on a positive note when beating Fortuna Dusseldorf away from home. That is their only league win in seven games, losing their other six. Defeats to Hoffenheim and Augsburg have followed since that win meaning they will be looking for a change of fortune in this different competition.

Our betting prediction:
Over 3.5 goals

In terms of their participation in the DFB Pokal it’s been a much more positive one in comparison to the league. Werder have seen off fourth tier Atlas Delmenhorst 6-1 back in August before Heidenheim were brushed aside in the previous round.

Whilst they have been scoring goals in this competition it’s defensively where Werder have been struggling throughout the season. They have the second worst defensive record in the top-flight and the fact they come up against arguably the most dynamic attack in Germany will be giving the coach and his staff plenty of concern.

Borussia Dortmund Preview – Will red-hot Dortmund make it four wins in a row at the beginning of 2020?

It may only be three games but there are signs already that Borussia Dortmund’s season is beginning to turn around. An inconsistent first half to the campaign resulted in some calls for Lucien Favre to be replaced as Dortmund were outside the top four and unable to a put a run of results together that would see them in contention for the title.

Now, in the first week of February, Dortmund are just two points behind leaders Bayern following three straight wins in the league. And emphatic wins at that.

The signing of teenage sensation Erling Haland has coincided with an upturn in form. Of course, the improvement in the team is not solely down to the striker but he has definitely filled a gap that had been glaring for some time. Haland has already notched seven goal in his three appearances, only one of which was a start.

Dortmund have won 5-3, 5-1 and 5-0 since returning from the winter break and that will have given them a huge belief for the challenges that lie ahead. Both domestically and in the upcoming Champions League tie wth PSG. Remarkably, it’s just the second time this season where Dortmund have managed to win three consecutive games in the Bundesliga.
