Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting tips
RB Leipzig was eliminated in Europe on Thursday. There is not much time to mourn, because on Sunday, the team will play the tricky away match against Werder Bremen.
Werder Bremen was working on a good series. For the last week’s away match against Hannover 96, Die Hanseaten had won three times in a row. A fourth victory in that series would not come. Bremen bluffed in the first half. The 2-0 halftime could no longer be repaired and lost 2-1. This kept Werder at 36 points. With five more parties to go, there are nine more than number sixteen Mainz 05. Mathematically it is still possible, but relegation does not seem to pose a real danger to green-wits.
Trainer Florian Kohfeldt took the lead on Friday to start with his team. ‘We want to play with a lot of intensity from the first second,’ said the coach. After the European worries of Leipzig, this seems indeed a logical tactic. Linksback Ludwig Augustinsson can not be used. Bremen is likely to operate in a system with three central defenders.
RB Leipzig was not bad after the 1-0 victory in the first leg of the quarter final of the Europa League. When the team also took a 0-1 lead in the away match against Olympique Marseille, a place near the last four seemed close. In the remainder of the game, things went completely wrong for Die Roten Bullen. The team was overwhelmed by the French and defensive did not look good at Leipzig. Eventually, 5-2 was lost.
Once again, RBL had to face many goals, after the 1-4 league low of three days earlier, against Bayer Leverkusen. In themselves, these competitions were not. In twelve European matches, Leipzig succeeded only once to keep the zero. In the league, the top-six team has the most counter-hits (41). By comparison, last year Leipzig had 30 goals after 29 matches. It is clear on which level the team of trainer Ralph Hasenhüttl can improve.
