Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview & Betting Tips
Werner Bremen meet Bayer Leverkusen on Monday at the Weser Stadium. The two teams are heading in vastly different directions with the hosts on a six match losing streak. Relegation beckons for Bremen if they can't turnaround their form.
Werder Bremen Form
The break for the pandemic may have come at just the right time for Werder Bremen. Prior to the break they had seen themselves lose six Bundesliga matches on the trot while only winning one of their last 11 matches at the Weser Stadium. In the process they've conceded 26 goals in those 11 matches.
Florian Kohfeldt’s side were not in good spirits prior to the break. A 2-0 home defeat to Union Berlin was followed by a 3-0 loss at RB Leipzig before another 2-0 home defeat to Dortmund. In their last match before the break Bremen drew 2-2 despite being 2-0 up after six minutes. Between all this they also lost a German Cup fixture 2-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Werder Bremen have seen 2+ goals conceded in their last eight matches and have failed to score in their last five home matches. The break from action could however mean vastly different mindsets among the players.
Werder Bremen Team News
Manager Florian Kohfeldt is under huge pressure to turn around Bremen's fortunes. The injury list has cleared a bit over the last few weeks. Goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka, defender Omer Toprak and midfielders Philipp Bargfrede and Kevin Mohwald should all be available.
Bayer Leverkusen Form
Bayern Leverkusen experienced a far better run compared to Bremen prior to the break. A run of nine wins in their last 10 matches, spanning over three competitions should mean they head into this match high on confidence.
What the break has done to teams is however unknown as yet. Momentum has surely stalled, if not completely been lost. But Leverkusen has shown enough quality to overcome a desperate Bremen.
Peter Bosz’s side crushed Eintracht Frankfurt 4-0 in their last home match. Their last official match ended in a 3-1 victory at Rangers in the UEFA Europa League.
Kai Havertz scored first again, Charles Aránguiz made it 2-0 while Leon Bailey came off the bench to add a third.
Bayer Leverkusen Team News
Centre back Sven Bender, midfielder Nadiem Amiri and forward Kevin Volland have all had time to recover from their respective injuries.
