Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen Prediction & Match Preview

Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: BayArena.

The Company’s Eleven are one of the best teams in the competition, and they are proudly in possession of a podium spot at the moment – even above the likes of Dortmund, Monchengladbach etc.

They used to be one of the last surviving teams in the league to stay unbeaten, before they ran into Bayern.

Now, they will be determined to get back to their unbeaten ways, and will consider this upcoming match-up a great opportunity, since it is against a relegation-battler.

The River Islanders are placed 14th in the table, and barring a game against the 17th placed Mainz, they have a 100% losing record in the past five game weeks in the league.

On top of that, Peter Bosz’s men also have a dominating h2h record against this rival over the years.

As such, expect Bayer Leverkusen to emerge victorious this Saturday at the BayArena.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen Prediction

Bosz’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Frankfurt. In the meantime, Florian Kohfeldt’s men lost 0-2 at home against Union Berlin.

Going on, the River Islanders were winless in 11 of their previous 13 overall match-ups, and of the total two wins during the period, one had come against a team from the lower division, while the other had come against the 17th placed Mainz.

On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 19 of their former 22 overall fixtures, and they remained so in ten of their last eleven appearances at home.

Going on, the Company’s Eleven also have a great h2h record against this rival in the past decade, and especially so at their home.

Taking into account these observations, expect Bayer Leverkusen to post a convincing win this weekend.

Moreover, with the faltering defense that the visitors possess, the expectation is that goals will come in plenty as well.
