Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund).
The usual top-two of the German league has struggled a bit at the initial stages of their respective campaigns, that the race for the podium has been blown a bit open. As of now, both Dortmund, and Bayern trail behind Leipzig in the table, but taking into account a tough fixture for the toppers this match-day, this is an opportunity to make amends for the earlier mishaps.
The unexpected loss against Union Berlin, a newly promoted side, which Der BVB experienced, knocked them off course, and ever since they have found it hard to return to the extraordinary form they were in.
In that regards, they do have the home advantage this weekend, and fans will rightfully hope for a monstrous performance from their players.
Opponents Bremen have every reason to be worried, taking into account the three losses they have suffered from the five match-days so far. Moreover, they have struggled against this opponent in h2h encounters, and especially in matches at this famed venue.
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen Head-to-head (h2h)
- 16 of the former 19 wins went to Borussia.
- Eight of the previous ten battles saw Bremen conceding twice or more.
- Only once have the hosts lost at this venue in the last ten years.
- The previous eleven league encounters at this venue returned ten home wins.
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen Prediction
Werder has lost three of their former five overall match-ups and conceded twice or more in four of these five as well. On the road, they have not kept a single clean sheet this season, and other than two bottom-most teams in the table, have conceded the most number of goals in the competition.
On the other hand, the Black and Yellows are considered the best after Bayern in the country and have done justice to this tag so far this campaign, if not for their loss against Berlin. Importantly, they have the home advantage, and the team has been spectacular in front of the home crowd for quite a long time.
In fact, at the Signal Iduna Park, they have conceded a single goal from the previous three appearances and disregarding their CL tie against Barcelona, the squad had managed to score twice or more in ten games on the trot.
Moreover, h2h clashes too have been hugely favorable to the hosts of the day, and it’s entirely reasonable to expect them to put on a great performance this Saturday as well.
