Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Betting tips
A Monday game will be played on the first day of the restart of the season in the Bundesliga. Bremen, which has been waiting for a win for six games, welcomes Leverkusen. The signs could hardly be more different. Before the duel Werder Bremen vs. Leverkusen also indicate the odds that the guests are the clear favorite.
The hosts from Bremen were also one of the teams who wanted to prevent the Bundesliga season from restarting so quickly, as it was very late to start training for the team.
In addition, there are negative personnel reports even before the restart. In addition to bad luck for injuries, as reported on Friday, Claudio Pizarro from Werder Bremen has to go into quarantine for two weeks because a member of the closest circle of acquaintances tested positive.
A calm and relaxed preparation of the 17th of the table could not be guaranteed. In addition, a team coming to Bremen on Monday is playing a very good season.
The 2019/20 season in the Bundesliga is anything but good for Bremen. The team of coach Florian Kohfeldt started the season with great ambitions, but the reality quickly caught up with them. And that means relegation battle instead of European ambitions.
In football, it can quickly happen that a team slips into a negative vortex. That’s exactly what happened to the Bremen team. During the break, Florian Kohfeldt naturally had some time to hold many one-on-one talks with his coaching team and to influence the mental elements in direct contact with the players. Remaining doubts about the current constitution remain.
But what gives the host hope in this situation? A look at the table of the Bundesliga does not bode well, because Bremen is already eight points behind in 15th place, even if there is still a game in hand.
Another factor that speaks against Bremen: The last home win dates from September 1, 2019, in the game against FC Augsburg. Since then, not a single game has been won at home, and the ghost game also removes the effect of the home bonus. That encourages us before the game Bremen vs. Leverkusen in our forecast that the guests can take the victory home with them.
Bremen still has a hope in their squad: Milot Rashica. The Kosovar has so far been unimpressed by the team’s major problems during the season and was the only player who regularly performed well and scored goals. If he can preserve his form, Bremen has at least one target player who can still ensure very important point wins.
What pulls Bremen through the season is injury worries. Against Leverkusen Füllkrug, Pizarro and Augustinsson have to pass, Friedl will probably start on the left defensive side, de offensive should then form Bittencourt, Rashica and Osako. The guest should be put under pressure with dynamism and speed.
With a strong 47 points, Leverkusen is currently fifth in the Bundesliga table. The ambitions are high, the Werkself still want to be in the top four in the remaining season, but the competition is tough. A victory in Bremen could bring the necessary momentum for the rest of the season.
And the signs are good. Leverkusen is the favorite, is better off individually, has no personnel worries and remained undefeated in ten games in a row before the break. Before the game, Werder Bremen vs. Leverkusen our tip that the guests will decide this game for themselves.
What also speaks for Leverkusen is the small discrepancy between home and away results. Due to the ghost games, small advantage and disadvantage situations blur anyway, moreover, Leverkusen was already very strong on the opponent’s place, which can also be proven statistically.
Leverkusen’s impressive series of ten games without defeat have already been mentioned, but what’s even more impressive is that nine of these games have been won. There were also successes in the area, Charles Aranguiz and Peter Bosz remain the club, so the positive development could continue.
In addition, Leverkusen still dances at all weddings, is in the Europa League, as well as in the DFB Cup. So the chances of gilding this season with great end results are not bad. One question that arises, however, is the shape of Leverkusen. The break could have negative effects on them.
Surprisingly, Leverkusen is not one of the teams with the best offensive lines this season. The wild style that Bosz used in his early days is a thing of the past. Leverkusen attaches more importance to possession of the ball, has “only” scored 45 goals so far, but the balance is there, which ultimately results in less spectacle but more success.
As already mentioned, there are currently no personnel worries for Leverkusen. Peter Bosz can draw almost from the full, has the choice between a three and a four rect. In the end, the option worked very well with a triple chain, which could still be the method of choice.
