Werder Bremen vs Nurnberg
Date: Sunday, 16 September 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Substitute striker Milos Rashica bagged the 96th-minute winner for Werder Bremen in the previous round’s visit to Commerzbank-Arena.
The goal could serve as a massive confidence-booster for Florian Kohfeldt’s troops who made a fine start to the new Bundesliga campaign clinching four points from ties against Hannover and Eintracht.
Die Werderaner will have a nice chance to back up such start on Sunday afternoon when they are set to host the new boys in the league at Weserstadion.
Nurnberg, who returned to the elite class after spending four years in the second division, took just one point in two games so far.
Der Club are feeling the strength of a higher class football immediately at the start of the campaign and they’ll likely face hard times saving the elite tier status this term.
Werder Bremen vs Nurnberg Head-to-head
- The two outfits are set to tackle each other for the first time in four years.
- Die Werderaner were much more successful over the course of history.
- They won 29, drew 17 and lost 16 of 62 matches against Nurnberg so far.
- Werder notched two or more goals in all of last three encounters against Der Club.
- Both teams were on target in three of last four H2H games.
Werder Bremen vs Nurnberg Prediction
Nurnberg have problems with the attacking creativity at the start of the season in the elite tier. They notched just one goal in two games so far.
Michael Kollner’s side did not concede many either (two), but we can hardly see them hurting Werder away at Weserstadion here.
Die Werderaner were dominant in the history of home matches against Nurnberg (19 wins and 5 losses).
Werder will be coming to this contest encouraged with the away win over Eintracht Frankfurt and the home win is the best of the betting options you’ll have here at 1.66 odds.
Since Nurnberg showed certain limits in the build-up play in two opening games, we will alternatively back Werder to keep a clean sheet at 2.62 odds here.
