FC Koln vs Werder Bremen Prediction

FC Koln completed back to back wins for the first time since earning promotion and posted a whopping 4-2 victory over Frankfurt on the road last week. The hosts have stumbled just twice in their last five fixtures in the Bundesliga, and have garnered eight points from a possible fifteen as well.

At the moment, the home side have propelled themselves out of the relegation zone, albeit only on goal difference.

On the other hand, Werder Bremen have been admitting defeats by some very hefty margins in their last two fixtures. Their previous clash at home saw them at the losing end of a thumping 5-0 scorecard against Mainz. While on the road, the guests managed no more than a consolation goal against Bayern Munich who thrashed six past them.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have just one win to their name from their past five matchups in the top flight.

Furthermore, FC Koln have been very convincing in their recent clashes at home. They have salvaged a point at the least in three of their previous four games here.

With Werder Bremen yet to hit the ground running on the road, FC Koln are the front runners to come away with all three points in this one.

Be that as it may, the guests have done just enough to grab a share of the spoils in three of their outings so far. Taking into account that four of their previous five visits here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt to back would have to be a Draw no bet.

In addition, irrespective of the result, Werder Bremen have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet. Fifteen of the twenty-three goals that they have netted so far have come from their trips on the road.

Meanwhile, neither side have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five h2h meetings here. As such, count on both teams to find the back of the net this Saturday.
