Werder Bremen vs Dusseldorf Prediction & Betting tips
The 14th matchday of the Bundesliga will be opened on Friday evening in the Weserstadion: The SV Werder Bremen receives the Fortuna from Dusseldorf. For the home side, the encounter after only one point from the last five games has a special meaning. Against the climber, the green-whites want urgently finish their winless series. In addition, you have to win again if you want to live up to your own claim that you want to play for the European Cup places this season. The Dusseldorf are with the 0: 1 on the final day against Mainz after an intermediate high against Hertha (4: 1) and Bayern (3: 3) back on the ground of the facts. With nine points Fortuna is the bottom of the league.
Werder and Fortuna have met 48 times. With 21 wins, 12 draws and 15 defeats speaks the direct comparison for Bremen. In the last ten games against Dusseldorf the SVW had only a bust. There were five wins and four draws during this period. In Weserstadion, the Green-Whites are with eleven wins and four draws even 15 games against Fortuna without defeat.
After the 8th game day and the 2-0 victory at Schalke, the green-white world looked more than just okay. Werder stood with 17 points in third place. Five games later, the Bremen but could only book another point on their account. And this point was also lucky with the last-minute equalizer in Freiburg in the 92nd minute. With this yield, Bremen slipped to 9th place. At the first relegation place, the Hanseatic League still have a lead of seven points, the first European Cup is three points away. Defender Sebastian Langkamp admitted that the squad after the winless series is already a little uneasy. You’ve upped the expectations yourself. If you follow them now, you are just disappointed. It seems that Werder played at the highest limit. In addition, players like Davy Klaassen or Maxi Eggestein were in top form. But some players are running after weeks of their best form. For example, Max Kruse has been waiting for a goal since 744 minutes.
The coach still wants to stick to his style of football. Against Bayern last weekend showed the Werderaner quite a decent performance. The hosts tried it against Munich with a 4-3-3 at possession and a 4-1-4-1 against the ball. It lurked on counterattacks. The team of coach Kohfeldt often went boldly into pressing. In the end, the record champion won but earned 2: 1. Kohfeldt decided against a five-string and against a counter striker like Rashica. Such a line-up would have felt the coach as counterproductive for the development of his team. Now the series is to be ended against Dusseldorf. Complicating the game for the SVW by the fact that you have to do without the two main defenders Niklas Moisander and Milos Veljkovic. As substitute Sebastian Langkamp and Marco Friedl should move into the starting lineup. Even the regular Sechser Philipp Bargfrede can come up at the earliest in the second half again for his club.
In the home game against Mainz last Friday Dusseldorf wanted to gild the spectacular point win in Munich. In contrast to the previous matchday, 95-coach Funkel switched back to a system with two strikers. Dusseldorf acted on the defensive with a three-way chain, which became a fiver chain when opposing possession. From the start, the hosts showed more bite in the duels and came after winning the ball in midfield to some good chances. Especially in the first half of the Fortuna but there were too many opportunities. In the second round you could not put the Mainz so under pressure. After a mistake by goalkeeper Rensing, the striker even took the lead in the 67th minute.
Only in the closing stages of the team of coach Friedhelm Funkel could put pressure again. But it was not enough to compensate. Thus, F95 had to accept a particularly bitter defeat, although the much better team was. With two wins, three draws and eight defeats, Dusseldorf plays the weakest season so far in its Bundesliga history. The Fortuna have always taken at least three goals in the last four games away. Against Mainz the climber remained for the sixth time this season without his own goal. Kaan Ayhan is expected to return to Bremen after injury. For Marcel Sobottka and Andre Hoffmann the game comes too early.
