Bochum vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 3 September 2022
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion.
Werder Bremen were promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season. But so far they have managed to deliver some good performances. Meanwhile Bochum have been a total disaster in the Bundesliga this time around and are placed bottom-most in the table with a 100% losing record.
They are the only team yet to post at least one point on the board, and they have let in the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition as well. Moreover, only two other teams have scored fewer goals than them.
Even the previous season they had merely managed to stay above the relegation cut off and all through the campaign they had managed to register just twelve wins.
Meanwhile Werder Bremen have remained unbeaten all through this new season except for a single defeat. This only loss had come against Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt.
They have consistently found the back of the net in the last several fixtures and they also have the confidence of having been promoted from the second division.
On top of that they also have a superb head-to-head record against this rival over the years.
Taking into account these observations expect a victory for Werder Bremen this Saturday.
