Werder Bremen Desperate times call for Thomas Schaaf?

Sunday will be a day of reckoning for Werder Bremen. Not that they haven’t experienced this all before. Needing a win from the final round to avoid automatic relegation last season, the Green-Whites pulled off a remarkable scoreline here at Weserstadion, demolishing FC Koln 6-1 to sneak into the relegation play-off. From there they subsequently edged out Bundesliga 2 outfit Heidenheim on away goals.

More final day heroics are needed then. Could club legend Thomas Schaaf – Florian Kohfeldt’s replacement in the dugout following his sacking earlier in the week – be the man to inspire a side that has not merely forgotten how to win but seldom avoids losing these days? Last week’s 2-0 loss away to Augsburg made it one point from the last nine Bundesliga matches, having won only twice at home in 2021 (D3 L5).

All three eventualities remain open, though. A win would guarantee they finish 15th, thus safe for another season, so long as Arminia Bielefeld don’t pick up three points of their own in Stuttgart. Meanwhile failure to win for the sixth successive game in Bremen would see them demoted were it to be coupled with victory for 17th-placed FC Koln, the Billy Goats favourites to oblige in Cologne against bottom side Schalke.


Werder Bremen To Score 2+ Goals



Borussia Monchengladbach – Rose to sign out with third successive away loss?

Three defeats in four, the latest a 2-1 scoreline at Borussia-Park against a Stuttgart side who subsequently moved to within a point of The Foals, means a place in Europe next season is out of Gladbach hands. Any one of four teams – Union Berlin (47 points), Gladbach (46), Stuttgart and Freiburg (both 45) – can still finish seventh, awarding the occupant entry into the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.

In reality, Marco Rose, overseeing his final encounter as coach before switching his allegiance to Borussia Dortmund in the off-season, knows his players beating struggling Werder Bremen is a bare minimum requirement. They would also require a favour elsewhere, though, when second-place RB Leipzig – another side waving goodbye to their outgoing manager – take on Union Berlin in the capital.

As far as their own chances go, the outlook is decidedly murky. It is three points from the last twelve, beating only fourth-from-bottom Arminia Bielefeld in this time. While away from home it is one win from the last nine (D4 L4), having lost each of the last two, versus Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich, by a combined 2-9 aggregate. In fact, they have now shipped two or more in five of the last six on the road.

Werder Bremen Vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Advice

The decision to replace Florian Kohfeldt with club legend Thomas Schaaf could prove an inspired move. Schaaf boasts a 13-game unbeaten home record as a coach in the Bundesliga versus Monchengladbach, with eight wins and five draws, but takes over a side at an extremely low ebb. Werder Bremen are without a win for nine matches (D1 L8) and have claimed just one point from their last five games at Weserstadion.


Werder Bremen Vs Borussia Monchengladbach – Key Facts:

  • Only against FC Koln has Gladbach accrued more wins or scored more often than they have versus Werder Bremen, avoiding defeat across their last ten Bundesliga meetings (W7 D3).
  • The hosts approach this must-win fixture without a win in nine Bundesliga matches (D1 L8). Bremen remain winless in five (D1 L4) at the Weserstadion since beating Frankfurt 2-1 in February.
  • Saturday’s guests aren’t in great shape either though. Gladbach have lost three of their last four games and managed one win in nine on the road (D3 L4) – shipping 2+ goals in all but one of the last six.


Fortunately for Bremen, Gladbach aren’t pulling up any trees either. The Foals have taken three of the last twelve points, managing one win on the road in their last nine attempts (D3 L4). So, with both teams desperately needing to win and with neither impartial to goals, it is unlikely to be dull. Over 2.5 Goals & Both To Score has delivered in 7 of last 12 Bremen games and 4 of last 6 for Gladbach away.
