Reason For Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

  • Werder Bremen have the worst home record in the Bundesliga this season and have lost each of their last six home league games.
  • Bayer Leverkusen have won nine of their last 10 competitive matches.
  • Werder Bremen haven’t scored a league goal at home since November, failing to find the net in five consecutive matches since.
  • Bremen’s last two home league games both ended in 2-0 defeats.

Die Werderaner’s relegation battle resumes

Werder Bremen entered the enforced break in Bundesliga play in dreadful form, and they will be hoping the lengthy absence has reset their negative mindset somewhat as they strive to escape the top flight relegation zone.

The north German club have won just one of their last 11 Bundesliga matches, losing on nine occasions and finding themselves four points adrift of the relegation playoff spot. They did manage a point prior to the shutdown of sport, but even that felt like defeat after they let their early 2-0 lead slip at Hertha Berlin.

Not only that, but Werder Bremen are still dealing with a significant selection crisis. Davy Klaassen is suspended, while Claudio Pizarro and Ludwig Augustinsson are both ruled out. Niklas Fullkrug, Kevin Mohwald and Omer Toprak are all doubts too, although they will be buoyed by the return of Jiri Pavlenka between the sticks.

Visitors pick up momentum in 2020

Bayer Leverkusen’s season is going very differently. The visitors sit 5th in the Bundesliga table and are just eight points adrift of leaders and champions Bayern Munich. Not only that, but they entered lockdown in the midst of a sensation run of form.

They are unbeaten in 10 competitive games and have won nine of them, and their Bundesliga record – seven wins from their last nine games – is almost as impressive. Whether they can pick up where they left off remains to be seen, but they won’t get many better chances than against this Werder Bremen team.

Hosts’ home failings point to Leverkusen win

Indeed, the hosts have picked up just five points on home soil this season, losing each of their last six. They have scored a meagre eight goals in front of their own fans, and the last one of those came all the way back in November. Leverkusen’s away form is understandably a bit patchier but, with five wins from their last eight trips away, backing them to win against Werder Bremen is a good option.

We’re expecting a clean sheet for the visitors too. They hold the joint-third best defence of 2020 in the Bundesliga and face a side that have failed to score in five consecutive home league games. Each of Bremen’s last two home outings ended in 2-0 defeats, so backing Die Werkself to win 2-0 looks attractive for our correct score prediction.
