Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Borussia Dortmund’s ambitions of clinching the Bundesliga title suffered a huge blow last weekend when Lucien Favre’s men shockingly fell 2-5 at home to bitter rivals Schalke in the Ruhr derby.
Nothing suggested such outcome when Marco Reus bagged an early opener for BVB, but their game fell apart later on. Marco Reus and Marius Wolf were both sent off within a range of five minutes at the hour-mark and neither of them will be available for this important away fixture against Werder Bremen.
Luckily for Favre and his men, Bayern Munich also slipped up playing only a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Nurnberg on the following day.
Dortmund are now only two points behind the reigning champions at the top of the standings and can still hope of claiming the silverware with only three matches left to play.
Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
We should be in for a goal fest on Saturday afternoon at Weserstadion judging by the most recent head to head record between these two likes.
Both teams were on the scoreline in all of past 11 head to head affairs.
Teams played a six-goal thriller which ended in a 3-3 draw in February’s DFB Pokal tie (Bremen advanced on penalties) at Signal-Iduna-Park.
Borussia have a dreadful record of 11 wins and 30 defeats in last 49 visits to Weserstadion.
Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Werder gave away the battle for European positions with a surprisingly high 4-1 defeat away at Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend. Die Werderaner thus lost three on the spin across competiti0ons following back-to-back losses to Bayern Munich (in both Bundesliga and DFB Pokal).
Knowing about defensive holes Borussia revealed seven days ago against struggling Schalke, we just can’t imagine the low-scoring scenario on Saturday afternoon at Weserstaidon. We’d advise you to avoid away win bets given the head to head record as well as the fact the visitors will be without one of their key figures Marco Reus.
