Werder Bremen vs Mainz Betting Tips – Bundesliga, 17th December 17.30pm

Florian Kohfeldt’s Werder Bremen and Achim Beierlorzer’s Mainz lock horns in a Bundesliga matchup at Weserstadion on Tuesday night. These two teams are very evenly matched, with only one point separating the pair in Germany’s top table at present. Having lost four of their last five in the Bundesliga, Bremen could really do with maximum points on soil in midweek. Which way will this one go at Weserstadion?

Werder Bremen News and Form – Will the River Islanders suffer another defeat?

Florian Kohfeldt’s Werder Bremen have struggled for wins this term, picking up a mere three victories from 15 Bundesliga matches. The River Islanders have lost seven and drawn five of the other 12. Bremen hover just above the drop zone in Germany’s top table.

Only Paderborn have picked up fewer home points thus far. Bremen have been pretty woeful on home turf this term, winning just one of seven. Overall, Kohfeldt’s troops have won one, drawn one and lost four to take five points from a possible 21 at the Weserstadion. Since beating Augsburg 3-2 on September 1st, Bremen have drawn two and lost three of five league games on their own patch.

Having lost four of their previous five in the Bundesliga, Werder are in desperate need of a win. However, with Mainz also fighting for their lives, that will not be an easy task.

Mainz News and Form – Can the 05ers secure a third away win of the season?

Mainz have also had their troubles this season. Incredibly, the 05ers have yet to a draw a league game, winning five and losing ten of 15. No side in the top tier have lost more games than the Rhineland-Palatinate club.

After back-to-back wins over Hoffenheim and Frankfurt, scoring seven times along the way, Mainz have crashed to successive defeats to Augsburg and Borussia Dortmund.

Mainz are currently a point above Werder Bremen in the league table. While Bremen have been poor at home, Achim Beierlorzer’s side have struggled on the road, with only five clubs accumulating fewer away points thus far. Can they pick up a precious three points on the road on Tuesday night?

Werder Bremen vs Mainz Predictions

Mainz win: Werder Bremen had a solid season last time around, finishing in a respectable eighth place. Bremen were excellent at home, winning eight, drawing six and losing only three times. However, Werder have really struggled to get going at the Weserstadion this season, picking up just five points from seven games.

Mainz have lost four of their last six. However, during that run, Beierlorzer’s boys thumped Hoffenheim 5-1 away from home. On their day, Mainz are a capable outfit, but they are far too inconsistent. Still, Mainz will want to take advantage of Bremen’s poor home form, and I can see the away team nicking the points. The Mainz win is priced at 16/5. Also, put some money on the visitors to win and both teams to score at 5/1.
