Werder Bremen vs Ingolstadt
Date: Saturday 3rd December, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Weserstadion, Bremen.
Werder Bremen and Ingolstadt are going to face each other in a match of high importance for both teams because they will obviously be among the main candidates in the battle for avoiding the relegation at the end of the season. Werder Bremen have already played the derby of the bottom part of the standings in Bundesliga last weekend, when they shared a point with Hamburger SV, as the match ended in a 2-2 draw.
Alexander Nouri can be happy because he ended the negative run of four consecutive defeats, but the awful defensive line is still the number one concern for him as the team conceded at least two goals in each of the last five league games. The young striker Serge Gnabry is the only bright side of the team, having bagged five goals so far in the campaign, including the one in the mentioned draw with HSV last Saturday.
Maik Walpurgias seems to have brought the much needed refreshment since he took charge of Ingolstadt this month, as the team managed to take four points in last two Bundesliga games to escape the very bottom of the standings. Ingolstadt showed a terrific performance in the last round when they completely deserved to take the victory over Wolfsburg, but they were unlucky to concede the equalizer late in the second half.

It is really hard to say what the best betting option would be as for the outcome, but there are no doubts that Over 2.5 goals bet at the odds of 9/10 is a must take considering how poor Werder’s defensive line has been since the very start of the competition.
