THE TEAM NEWS

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg produced a solid display on the road at RB Leipzig as they claimed a point but it could have been better for the visitors had a decision gone against them with VAR ruling out what would have been the winning goal.
  • Freiburg played with their backs to the wall for the majority of the game but took a surprise lead thanks to Manuel Gulde and they looked like they would be able to frustrate the wasteful hosts until the scores were levelled in the final 15 minutes of the game.
  • Despite that, Robin Koch thought he had won the game at the death only for VAR to deem there was an offside in the build-up but it was a valiant point for Freiburg and they managed to avoid picking up any injury issues last week although Lukas Kubler remains a doubt.

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen’s issues were laid bare as they suffered a big loss at home to Bayer Leverkusen on their return to action and relegation looks to be a real possibility unless there is a serious upturn in their performances.
  • Bremen responded well to going behind and pulled level within two minutes thanks to Theodor Gebre Selassie but they soon found themselves behind again and conceded a further two goals in a one-sided second half.
  • That 1-4 defeat means they have lost six of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures but they will hope that Philipp Bargfrede will be available to help them try to end that run after he lasted 54 minutes on his first appearance of the year following a calf injury.

THE PREDICTION

Werder Bremen showed some very worrying signs in their loss to Bayer Leverkusen and if they do not make rapid improvements, they will find themselves with too much to do to get out of the relegation zone. They head to a buoyant Freiburg who earned a valiant point on the road at RB Leipzig last week and with the hosts having lost just four home league games so far this season, they are likely to compound Bremen’s woes.
