Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
The Red Bulls are easily the best team in the competition after Bayern, and so far they have done justice to that tag as well. As of now, they are placed second in the table, and currently they are trailing seven points behind toppers – the Bavarians.
It might seem like quite a cushion of points with just seven match-days remaining. However, Bayern are without the services of Robert Lewandowski for close to a month.
They also are jam-packed with their CL tie against PSG, whereas Julian Nagelsmann’s men could solely concentrate on the league, since they were eliminated from the CL in the Round of 16.
Meanwhile, the River Islanders are one of the worst in the German top flight. They are placed 13th in a table of 18, and they are also on a long losing run.
They have been struggling to score goals all through this campaign, and in return they have been conceding in plenty too.
On top of that, they also have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years, and have conceded in plenty in the process as well.
As such, expect Leipzig to post the three points on the board this weekend.

Werder Bremen vs Leipzig Prediction
Florian Kohfeldt’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Stuttgart. In the meantime, Nagelsmann’s men lost 0-1 at home against Bayern.
Going on, the River Islanders were winless in 20 of their previous 27 overall fixtures, and they are also on a three-game losing streak. Moreover, they have also won just thrice at home since the first week of October.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in ten of their last thirteen overall matches, and nine of these were wins as well. And of the three losses during this stretch, two had come in the Champions League.
Going on, they also have a great h2h record against Kohfeldt’s men over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Leipzig to have the upper hand this weekend at the Weserstadion. Moreover, expect them to score in plenty too, taking into account their pursuit of the league title.
