THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen’s nightmare season could yet get worse with relegation a real possibility at this stage and they must find a way to put their dreadful form behind them when they resume playing with a home game against Bayer Leverkusen first up.
  • Bremen find themselves just one place above bottom side Paderborn having managed just four wins from their 24 Bundesliga matches so far this season and they head into this round of matches eight points from safety.
  • Bremen have picked up just five points on home soil so far this season which is the worst record in the Bundesliga and they will be under pressure to improve that form here but they will be without the suspended Davy Klaassen.

BAYER LEVERKUSEN

  • Bayer Leverkusen have Champions League football firmly in their sights and will believe that they can overhaul Borussia Monchengladbach into fourth place at the very least by the end of the campaign.
  • Leverkusen have lost just one of their last nine matches in the Bundesliga and have picked up some impressive results during that run, including a thrilling 4-3 success against top four rivals Borussia Dortmund.
  • The enforced break may have served Leverkusen well as their injury list appears to have significantly decreased and they should be able to call upon the services of top-scorer Kevin Volland in what will be a huge boost.

THE PREDICTION

Werder Bremen cannot afford many more losses in their quest to retain their place in the Bundesliga but they face a difficult task on the league’s restart as they host Bayer Leverkusen. The visitors are right in the mix for a top four finish and will be hoping to continue the good form they were showing before proceedings were brought to a temporary halt. Bremen’s defence is desperately poor and they come into this round of fixtures with more goals conceded than any other side in the division which highlights their issues. They will need to show huge improvements if they are to keep Leverkusen at bay but the hosts are likely to prove too good here.
