VfB Stuttgart vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Bremen continued to impress on Tuesday when they saw off Hertha BSC 3-1 at home. Florian Kohfeldt’s troops thus made it three wins and two draws in five Bundesliga games.
It is enough to place them sky-high third in the league ladder coming into the sixth round tie with struggling Stuttgart away at Mercedes-Benz-Arena.
The hosts will head into the match in a completely opposite rhythm. They took only two points in five outings and are just one of three teams without a win in this term of the competition.
The clash with the red-hot Werder is certainly not the one to provide them a chance to get cheap points on the board, but another failure might seriously compromise Tayfun Korkut’s job after such a dreadful opening to the new season.
Stuttgart vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
Stuttgart have an opportunity to get back on level terms in the H2H record against Werder with a victory here.
The visitors currently lead the head to head tie by only a single win ahead of the 104th encounter with the Reds.
Die Werderaner, however, won only 11 of 51 away matches against Stuttgart.
Five of past six head to head affairs ended in home wins.
Stuttgart vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Stuttgart continued to struggle for goals on Wednesday when they easily fell 2-0 to RB Leipzig. They thus failed to find the back of the net in four of opening five matches of the new season.
Korkut’s men should have a chance to break such a poor thread here against Werder as the visitors play ultra-attacking football and will likely leave space at the back.
However, the Turkish manager has to be worried about Bremen’s impressive attacking line here. The visitors notched ten goals so far in the season and will come into this off the back of netting six in last two league wins over Augsburg and Hertha BSC.
The value is thus strong with Werder to net two or more goals at .25. Instead of backing the away win, we will go for the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at 1.90 knowing that the Reds enjoyed a fine home record in the previous term of Bundesliga (10 wins, 4 draws, 3 losses.
Stuttgart vs Werder Bremen: Bet Tips
Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.90 (9/10)
