This match looks like a home banker as last season's fourth placed finishers Wolfsburg host a newly-promoted Werder Bremen. There could be good value in backing a big home victory in this match as new coach Niko Kovac takes over the reins at The Wolves.

The sides last met in March as Wolfsburg won 2-1 away from home.

Wolfsburg Form


The Wolves had a fine season last time out, ending fourth in the Bundesliga table and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League. A run of four losses in five put the top four in doubt they finished by going WDWD.

A 5-0 home win against Mainz preceded a 1-1 draw at Stuttgart. They then won 1-0 at Cologne and drew 2-2 at home against Bayern Munich on the final day.

Wolfsburg have played five preseason friendlies as they scored 19 goals including a 4-0 win against Premier League side Brentford. The side’s first competitive match of the season saw a 1-0 win at Carl Zeiss Jena in the DFB Pokal.

Wolfsburg Injuries & Team News


Wolfsburg have lost two key players in this transfer window. Right back Kevin Mbabu was sold to Fulham and Xaver Schlager joined RB Leipzig. 

Left winger Jakub Kaminski has joined and should start. Mattias Svanberg was acquired from Bologna and will replace Schlager in central midfield.

Werder Bremen Form


The River Islanders finished second in Bundesliga II last season and were promoted back to the top flight. They lost just once in their final eight matches to ensure they return to the Bundesliga.

After three successive 1-1 draw, they won 4-1 at Schalke. A 3-2 home defeat to Holstein Kiel followed before winning 3-0 at Erzgebirge Aue and 2-0 at home to Jahn Regensburg on the final day.

The side have played six preseason friendlies, winning the last one 6-1 win against Groningen. That preceded a 2-1 win at Energie Cottbus in midweek in the DFB Pokal.

Werder Bremen Injuries & Team News


Attacking midfielder Romano Schmid was on target Energie Cottbus and should start this one. Fullback Mitchell Weiser joined from Bayer Leverkusen and scored on debut in midweek.

Coach Ole Werner will have Niclas Füllkrug leading the line after he scored 19 goals last term.
