Werder Bremen vs Schalke Prediction & Match Preview

Werder Bremen vs Schalke
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion.

The Miners continue to be the worst team in the competition, and are still placed dead last in the table. It seems as if they have already booked their ticket to the second division.

Note that they have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the league – 48, while only three other squads have even let in more than 30.

They have also been on a struggling stretch on the road for the past several months, and most importantly have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.

Meanwhile, the River Islanders are one of the worst teams in the league, and have dropped an alarming number of points so far.

However, they are the favorite this weekend – especially since they will be considering this match-up as a good opportunity to post a rare three points on the board.

Moreover, they have also shown an improvement in form lately, and they have performed comparatively well against minnows this season.

As such, expect Werder Bremen to have the upper hand this Saturday.

Werder Bremen vs Schalke: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Florian Kohfeldt’s men had won six of the former seven overall games.
  • They have scored two or more goals in five of the past seven encounters.
  • They have a 100% winning record against this rival after 2019, and had recorded a 1-3 victory on the road in the reverse fixture.
  • The former six clashes at this venue had three or more goals.

Werder Bremen vs Schalke Prediction

The River Islanders recorded a 1-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Hertha. In the meantime, Christian Gross’s men lost 0-4 at home the past game week, against Schalke.

Going on, the Miners were winless in 17 of their preceding 21 overall match-ups, and they are also on a three-game losing run – conceding nine goals in the process. And on the road, they have won just thrice after 2019.

On the other hand, their counterparts had won four of their last seven overall fixtures, and they had recorded a 2-0 win at home in their latest appearance.

In addition, Kohfeldt’s men also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years as well, and especially so in recent times.

Likely, expect Werder Bremen to deliver a winning performance this Saturday.
