Werder Bremen took advantage of the easier fixture at the start of the New Year to end a three-game winless streak in Bundesliga. They dispatched penultimate-placed Hannover 96 0-1 on the road thanks to a goal from forward Milot Rashica. The win helped Die Werderaner return to 9th place in the league standings. They are just six point shy of fourth-placed RB Leipzig and five behind 5th-placed Eintracht Frankfurt coming into this weekend’s tie with the Eagles.
The outcome of this particular tie could well determine these two teams’ destiny regarding their ambitions of playing European football next term. The visitors will also enter the match high on confidence following a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Freiburg last weekend. Frankfurt’s main stars Sebastien Haller, Ante Rebic and Luka Jovic all scored goals in the first half of the affair removing all doubts about the outcome before the break.
