Schalke vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Veltins Arena.
The Miners just might be the worst team in the whole league at present – because of the battering they received at the hands of Bayern Munich. In their opening fixture, the team was humiliated with an 8-0 drubbing by the Bavarians.
Suffice it to say they their confidence is at an all-time low, and they were already on a downward trajectory before this fixture. The team had troubles in even securing draws against bottom-tier teams prior to the Bayern match.
Now, they are pitted against the River Islanders, who are determined to finish in the top-half in 2020-21.
They have a great h2h record against David Wagner’s men recently, and particularly so at this venue.
For the reasons, expect Werder Bremen to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.

At home, the last they won a fixture was back in January, and in fact that has been their only victory in the whole of 2020.
On the other hand, their opposite number had won eight of their last nine fixtures. They had also kept clean sheets in five of their preceding six match-ups, and had scored two or more goals in eight of their former ten fixtures.
