Werder Bremen vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Sunday, 20th November, 2016
Kick-off: 16:30 UK
Venue: Weserstadion, Bremen
Eintracht Frankfurt will have a terrific chance to get involved in the contest for the very top of the table in Bundesliga since they will be travelling to Weserstadion to face the struggling Werder Bremen in the match which is set to close the 11th round this Sunday. Werder Bremen have had serious troubles at the back in the recent matches, having conceded three goals in each of the last three defeats to RB Leipzig, Freiburg and Schalke 04.
The team appointed Alexander Nouri as the new head coach back in September due to the awful start of the campaign, but the change on the bench did not bring the needed refreshment since the team will definitely be struggling a lot to save Bundesliga status until the very end of the season.
The Croat manager Niko Kovac, on the other side, can be proud on the defensive displays his team showed in the last couple of matches, since Eintracht Frankfurt managed to keep three clean sheets in a row in games with Hamburger SV, Borussia Monchengladbach and Koln.
Kovac will have to keep an eye on the red-hot Serge Gnabry, who scored three goals for Germany against San Marino during the international action. Gnabry is Bremen’s leading goal scorer with four goals so far in the competition.
