Back Bremen to pile the misery on Cologne
Werder Bremen ended Frankfurt’s lengthy unbeaten run in an impressive 2-1 home victory last weekend and they can follow up by winning at struggling Cologne.
Highflying Frankfurt were unbeaten in 11 – they had won nine of those games – but despite leading inside ten minutes, they were second best in Bremen.
That victory should give Florian Kohfeldt’s men plenty of confidence at Cologne, who have suffered three straight defeats and were thumped 5-1 at Bayern last time out.
Cologne, who are just four points clear of the danger zone, have won only one of their 11 home games this season and they have failed to score in four of their last five at the RheinEnergie Stadion.
Bremen tend to deliver under pressure – they avoided relegation via a playoff last season – and they have improved when it matters most, easing clear of the bottom two having suffered only three defeats in ten league games.
Bremen’s upturn in form has featured road wins at Mainz and Hertha Berlin, while they have also avoided defeat on away trips to Frankfurt, Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen.
Cologne’s only home scalps this season was against relegation rivals Arminia Bielefeld, so we predict Bremen to prevail.
However, it may be a tense affair and Bremen to win 1-0 makes appeal. Cologne’s last two home defeats against Augsburg and Stuttgart ended that way.
