Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Both teams have posted just four points on the board from the last five matches, and are slowly getting desperate as the season enters its hectic stages. Interestingly, either of these squads were on course to secure a spot in the top tier before their form went out.
Still, everything is not lost yet, and the teams could get things back on track with one or two huge performances.
Likely, this upcoming game is a major opportunity for both. Since both of these teams are struggling at the moment, either will try to register a convincing win – and the inference is that, the two faltering defenses should combine to let in quite a number of goals this Sunday at the Weserstadion.

Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart: Prediction
The River Islanders lost 5-3 on the road the last match-day, against Wolfsburg. In the meantime, the Reds lost 1-3 at home against Bayern Munich.
Going on, Florian Kohfeldt’s men have not kept a single clean sheet in their last eight fixtures, and they had conceded a total of eight goals from the preceding three games alone.
And at home, they have managed to keep their nets clean just once all through this season – against Bielefeld.
On the other hand, their counterparts have conceded three or more goals in the past two fixtures, and have kept a total of just three clean sheets from their former eight match-ups. And on the road, they have kept a single clean sheet this whole league season.
As such, it’s made clear that defense is not a strong suit for either of these squads.
Moving on, the River Islanders have found the back of the net in their former 20 games on the trot, and in their last 11 home appearances.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a streak of 15 fixtures of scoring at least once, and on the road, they have failed to find the back of the net just once since September of 2019.
Taking these stats into account, expect a goal-fest this weekend at the Weserstadion.
