Tip Werder Bremen - Bayer Leverkusen

Werder Bremen Bayer Leverkusen Prediction published on May 14, 2020 at 5:31 AM - modifiedat May 14, 2020 at 6:38 AM

As the German Bundesliga resumes after the forced break, among the teams in action will be Werder Bremen at home to Bayer Leverkusen this Monday. Going to the match, Werder Bremen are placed 17th on the standings with 18 points and Leverkusen are fifth with 47 points. It has been a bad season so far for Werder Bremen; the threat of getting relegated is staring at them and there is little to argue that they may beat the drop. At the time of stoppage, Bremen had gone winless in five straight matches across all competitions. In Bundesliga, they had six straight winless outings and just two wins in 20 league matches. Their on-field problems were further complicated by disunity in the team with manager Florian Kohfledt seemingly losing control. Constant changes to the match day squads left players unsettled and some even aired their dissatisfaction publicly. Being eight points off safety and with nine matches to go, Bremen have a lot to do but will be without the suspended Davy Klaasen in this game. Defensively, Bremen have been the worst in the league this season; they have conceded 55 goals and have not done well in attack either. They have scored 27 goals in 24 matches, making them the joint lowest scorers in the league. At the time of stoppage, Bremen had failed to score in four of five matches and they had no clean sheet in eight straight matches. Their home form was not better; they had gone winless in seven of their last nine matches at home and without a clean sheet in 14 straight. They resume with six straight home losses in Bundesliga and having failed to score in each of the last five league matches at home. In nine of 11 league matches at home, Bremen had conceded two or more goals.

On the other hand, Bayer Leverkusen head to the game unbeaten in 10 matches, nine of these being wins and will hope to extend the run when they meet Bremen. They are eyeing a place in Champions League and that should offer enough motivation as the league resumes. They have been lethal at times this season and have beaten both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, which signals their strength. They have the joint third best defence in the league, having conceded 30 goals and aren’t badly off in attack, having scored 45 so far. In nine of their last 10 matches, Leverkusen had scored two or more goals. They head here undefeated in four straight away matches, though they don’t have a clean sheet in the last six away matches. Of their 12 away Bundesliga matches this season, Leverkusen have won seven and will be firm favorites going to this clash. One more thing that could work for them is that they have an almost full squad available. Only lead scorer Kevin Volland remains unavailable, having suffered an injury after netting nine goals and providing seven assists.

Conclusion Werder Bremen - Bayer Leverkusen

Werder Bremen have struggled so far in the season and it seems their fate is known. Disunity in the team at the time of the forced break, a poor attack and a badly leaking defence have all contributed to their bad season. They also do not have a good run at home which poses a big risk for them in this match, as well as their survival. On the other hand, Leverkusen are clearly stronger and will have lesser pressure, compared to their hosts. With Leverkusen expected to win, the odds don’t come with great value and with Bremen under pressure to win, we expect them to push the visitors. As such, a good bet here would be on the game to produce three or more goals.
