THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen have had mixed results since football returned in Germany but are crucially still within touching distance of survival. Their hopes of beating the drop were boosted with a 0-1 win at out-of-form Schalke last weekend but then they put in a poor display midweek as they lost 0-3 at Eintracht Frankfurt.
  • Leonardo Bittencourt was a doubt to feature midweek but came off the bench to get some minutes while Werder Bremen have been handed more options recently due to the return from injury of Kevin Vogt.
  • They will want to quickly bounce back after the convincing midweek defeat and will look to do so against a Wolfsburg side that they haven't lost against in their last eight meetings.

WOLFSBURG

  • Borussia Dortmund ended Wolfsburg's seven-match unbeaten run in the Bundesliga before they bounced back with a stunning 4-1 success over Leverkusen last week but they will have been frustrated to have followed that up with a home 1-2 home defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend.
  • Against Eintrach Frankfurt, Wolfsburg's Mbabu cancelled out Andre Silva’s first-half penalty only for Frankfurt to bag a winner in the final five minutes.
  • They continue to have a number of injury issues, including the long-term absence of Brazilian William. Yannick Gerhardt made the bench in the last game though, while Josuha Guilavogui is another edging closer to a return.

THE PREDICTION

This is a big game for clubs at opposite ends of the table. While Wolfsburg will be keen to bounce back to winning ways with the top six and another Europa League campaign in their sights, Werder Bremen are battling to retain their top-flight status. There is no doubt this clash could prove another close and cagey contest with so much at stake, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see these two fight out a hard-earned draw. That said, if there was to be a winner, then slight preference would go to Wolfsburg should they recapture the form that saw them put Leverkusen to the sword. They are a team that carves out plenty of chances for their limited possession, and it could come down to how ruthless they are in front of goal.
