Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig
Date: Saturday, 18 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Werder Bremen host RB Leipzig in one of the most exciting games on the menu in the last round of Bundesliga. Die Werderaner will thus complete a streak of quite challenging fixtures in the very finish of the season as they’ve previously played the likes of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim.
The team led by Florian Kohfeldt were on a run of three successive losses in all competitions. It was a thread which moved them away from the contest for a Champions League spot. Werder did grow in from in the last couple of weeks. They picked up four points from past two super tough games against Dortmund (a 2-2 draw) and Hoffenheim (a 0-1 victory).
Bremen now sit ninth in the standings and are only two points shy of seventh-placed Wolfsburg (the position which also leads to the Europa League qualifications next term).
Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
RB Leipzig lea the head to head tie by two wins, but they have been struggling to pull off results away at Weserstadion historically.
Bremen won two and drew one of three home meetings with the Bulls (7-1 goal difference).
Leipzig took a 3-2 victory in a five-goal thriller when these two outfits locked horns in this term of Bundesliga.
Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
The visitors will definitely head into this as the form favourites. They won seven and drew two of last nine outings in all competitions. This is quite a respectable run if we know they basically had no genuine motivation in the last couple of weeks.
Ralf Rangnick’s men were too far from the title contest and yet even more distant from the battle for the fourth place. They scored at least two goals in eight consecutive matches in all competitions before last weekend’s goalless draw to reigning champions and table-toppers Bayern Munich at Red Buill Arena.
Leipzig have the DFB Pokal final (against Bayern Munich) scheduled for next weekend and Rangnick may give rest to some of his main stars in this non-important last round of Bundesliga tie. We will this back Werder not to lose at 1.55 as the main betting option.
