Werder Bremen vs Mainz: Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips

Werder Bremen vs Mainz
German Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 21st September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Weserstadion, Bremen.

Werder Bremen succumbed to their third straight defeat of the season and also saw their head-coach Viktor Skripnik sacked. Alexander Nouri, who took over as their interim manager has plenty of head-aches when Weserstadion gear up to host Mainz for the mid-week Bundesliga fixture. Aron Johannsson is suspended and at least seven first team players are in the injury list. It is a tall ask to get a win, especially against a team they had little success in the past.

Mainz continued their good run in the weekend as they returned with a 3-1 morale boosting win in their short trip to Augsburg. The result was important as they squandered a 3 goal lead in the home match in the 4-4 draw against Hoffenheim in the previous round. Mainz lost 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund on the opening matchday and with 4 points they are 9th in the league table. They will be eyeing another 3 points here to pile further misery on Bremen.

Werder Bremen vs Mainz: Prediction

Werder Bremen were hardly consistent last season and needed some strong results at the end of the season to escape from relegation. Now that things haven’t changed in the new season, it seems like a very difficult time to take on a team like Mainz, who are displaying some excellent attacking football. Also the number of players missing through injuries will dent their chances here.

At the same time, the away form of Mainz haven’t been that great in the previous season. But they will be very confident after having earned a 3-1 win from a tricky away trip to Augsburg last week. They have the momentum and are poised to return with all three points from this mid-week Bundesliga fixture.

Werder Bremen vs Mainz: Bet Tips

Mainz to win at 2.40 (7/5).
