Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen
German DFB Pokal
Date: Tuesday, 5 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen take on each other in the strongest of R16 fixtures in this term of DFB Pokal. The 2016/17 champions will head into it as heavy favourites following an amazing form at the start of the year. BVB have actually been dominant force in Germany ever since the season started.
They easily kept a six-point cushion at the top of the standings after back-to-back wins over RB Leipzig and Hannover.
Lucien Favre’s men can be thrilled with both attack and defense as the team kept a clean sheet against the likes of RB Leipzig before bagging five goals past relegation strugglers Hannover the following weekend.
Can BVB stay on track for the domestic double by jumping over Werder Bremen in this last 16 round tie on Tuesday evening?
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
The H2H tradition suggests we might be in for a goal fest on Tuesday at Signal-Iduna-Park.
All of past ten head to head encounters between these two outfits saw goals scored at both ends.
Borussia Dortmund claimed a 2-1 victory when teams played each other in mid-December.
BVB were generally much more successful in H2H games on the home patch (33 wins to Werder’s 11).
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
The visitors also began the year in a decent fashion. They claimed four points in two matches beating Hannover 0-1 and drawing 2-2 to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Florian Kohfeldt’s men, however, seem to be too easy to break down whenever they are up against a stronger team. It was confirmed last weekend when Die Werdenar shipped two goals to Frankfurt at home.
Given they’ll be up against a team which boast by far the best attacking record in this term of Bundesliga (50 goals scored in 90 games), it’s really hard to see any other scenario but a home win. Also, since all of last ten H2H matches produced goals at both ends, Borussia to win & BTTS does not look to be a bad call at all at the odds of 2.62.
