Werder Bremen vs Arminia Bielefeld
Date: Saturday, 3 October 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
The Blues have just got promoted to the top flight, and despite their inexperience, they have made an impression. Their opener was against Frankfurt, one of the best teams in the league, and still they managed to secure a 1-1 draw.
The team followed it up with a 1-0 win at home against Koln. By the looks of things, confidence is high at the Blues’ camp, and they will try to extend their unbeaten run another week.
However, they will have to take on the competitive River Islanders for that. Florian Kohfeldt’s men managed to stay in the Bundesliga despite being included in the relegation playoffs the last season, and they have also built up good momentum with great performances in the pre-season.
Provided the games were friendlies, but still the squad showed great promise in those fixtures. On top of that, they are also at home, and have an impressive h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, we can expect both teams to be on equal footing. And judging recent performances, the probable outcome is for both teams to find the back of the net. The three points will probably go to the hosts, but the more promising bet is the BTTS.
Werder Bremen vs Arminia Bielefeld: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The River Islanders are on a two-match winning run.
- Seven of the preceding eight clashes had goals from both teams.
- Eight of the last nine wins at this venue had gone to the hosts.
- Disregarding a single game in 2009, the home team has scored two or more goals in every single meeting since 1997 at this ground.
Werder Bremen vs Arminia Bielefeld: Prediction
Kohfeldt’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. In the meantime, Uwe Neuhaus’s men secured a 1-0 win at home against Koln.
Going on, the River Islanders showed great spirit in avoiding relegation the last season, and will be determined to not let themselves go through that ordeal once again.
They have been scoring goals in plenty lately, and after extensive preparation in the off-season, their offense looks really fine-tuned.
They also have the confidence that they are taking on a recently-promoted team, and they have dominated them in h2h clashes over the years.
Likely, expect them to create constant threat in the opposite half all through the ninety minutes.
On the other hand, Neuhaus’s men seem determined to secure a top-half finish this season, and so far they have stayed true to their objective. Even in their opener, they showed a lot of fighting spirit, and that too against Eintracht Frankfurt – a consistent contender for the European spots in the Bundesliga.
Finally, majority of h2h clashes between these two teams have always had goals from either side. And as such, expect the same to happen this Saturday as well.
