Leipzig vs Werder Bremen Prediction & Match Preview

RB Leipzig vs Werder Bremen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.

The Red Bulls are one of the best teams in the competition, and are placed third in the table at the moment. They have also lost just once all through this campaign, and have conceded the fewest number of goals so far this season.

They are currently just two points away from securing the top-most spot, and are flying high with confidence after securing a ticket to the knockouts in the UCL. In the pivotal final match-day in the group stages, they had defeated Manchester United 3-2.

Meanwhile, the River Islanders are one of the weakest teams in the league, and are one of the few teams in the competition to stay winless in the last five game weeks.

They have also posted a total of just two wins all through this season, and it had come against Schalke, and Bremen – two teams in the relegation zone.

On top of that, Julian Nagelsmann’s men also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years.

Likely, expect Leipzig to deliver a dominating performance this Saturday at their home.

Nagelsmann’s men held defending champions Bayern Munich to a 3-3 draw on the road the last match-day. In the meantime, Florian Kohfeldt’s men lost 1-2 at home against Stuttgart.

Going on, the Red Bulls had won three of their previous four games, and had scored three or more goals in their last three fixtures. At home, they are on an eight-fixture winning run, and have scored a total of 21 goals in the process.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a winless run of eight games, and had conceded a total of 12 goals from the past four fixtures alone. On the road, they are also on a four-match winless run, and most importantly, they have a 100% losing record at this venue in h2h clashes.

Finally, the guests have conceded three or more goals in every single official h2h clash at this stadium, bar once.

Taking these observations into account, expect a convincing Leipzig win this weekend, and goals in plenty as well from the offensively in-form squad.
