Werder Bremen vs RasenBallsport Leipzig
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Leipzig has been the best team so far in the competition, and within the short span league has been in operation this season, they have taken on titans such as Bayern, Monchengladbach, Frankfurt, etc.
Despite such a heavy schedule, they are still unbeaten, and in fact, if not for the 1-1 draw against Bayern, the squad would have enjoyed a 100% win-record.
Hosts Werder will have to be on their toes as they host the current table-topper. They have just managed to get back on track after losing their opening two fixtures.
But one thing that needs to be mentioned would be the fact that, after their first two losses, Bremen was pitted against Union Berlin, and Augsburg, two of the weaker units in the tournament.
As such, they will have to heavily lean on the home advantage to script out a game without much incident.

Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig Prediction
The Red Bulls have been amongst the elite of the Bundesliga for quite some time, and this season they have raised their levels to even greater heights. If last campaign is any indication, the guests are heavy favorites to script out a win.
2018-19 edition of the competition saw RasenBallsport qualifying for the Champions League, and ending up on the podium, while their counterparts even failed to make it to Europe.
Moreover, 2019-20 has seen the two pick things up things from they left off last time around. RB is unbeaten and at the top of the table, while Werder lost their first two match-ups, and is placed tenth in the table.
In addition, the Red Bulls have scored the most number of goals except for Dortmund and Bayern and conceded the least in the whole competition. On the other hand, Bremen has conceded nine goals so far which is just one fewer than the dead-last-placed Hertha.
By the looks of things, we are about to witness the table-topper exert their dominance on the hosts this Saturday.
