Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
A demolishing 2-6 loss to Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal had much greater consequence for Bayer Leverkusen than just the cup elimination. Die Werkself are yet to recover from it as they lost back-to-back league ties to Borussia Dortmund and Stuttgart.
These defeats dropped Heiko Herrlich’s men down to fifth place in the league standings, meaning the team has an imperative to win the two remaining games and hope for Hoffenheim’s slip-up in order to play the Champions League football next term.
Can Due Werkself bounce back and clinch a much-important three-pointer on Saturday against Werder Bremen? The hosts have nothing to play for in the rest of the season and they will come into this winless in four, meaning the away win could be the most likable scenario here.
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head
The head to head tie speaks in Werder’s favour.
Die Werderaner lead it by nine wins, but they were much more dominant in matches at Weserstadion where Leverkusen snatched just five wins in 39 games.
This will be the third H2H encounter between Werder and Leverkusen this season.
Die Werkself are 2/2 so far, having won both the league and the DFB Pokal clashes at BayArena.
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
Werder did have a tough schedule lately as they played the likes of RB Leipzig, Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund in last three games. Nonetheless, Bayer Leverkusen will also be a super tough opposition for the team led by Florian Kohfeldt, particularly since the visitors are in desperate need for points to play the most elite football competition next year.
We’ll thus ignore Leverkusen’s historical struggles at Weserstadion and back them to clinch the spoils this time out at 1.80 odds. Herrlich’s side did play very well last weekend when they dominated the pitch against Stuttgart, but were unlucky to lose 0-1 at the end.
