Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 15 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
RB Leipzig are looking to conclude the awful week with a victory over Werder Bremen on Sunday afternoon at Weserstadion. It has been a rough work week for the Bulls who conceded as many as nine goals in back-to-back losses within only three days. They first fell 1-4 at home to Bayer Leverkusen in the last game of the previous round on Monday.
They went on to concede five goals in a demolishing loss to Olympique Marseille which eliminated Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men from Europa League. They can now focus entirely on domestic affairs where Leipzig fell to sixth place after dropping the ball against Die Werkself last time out. They are still within the reach of the top four position n and the fans can still dream of the Champions League football next term, but a lot could depend on the outcome of this trip to Bremen.
Nonetheless, rebounding at Weserstadion will be anything but an easy task for the vulnerable visitors. Die Werderaner won four on the trot in front of the home crowd in Bundesliga. They did end the streak of five consecutive matches without a loss last weekend falling 2-1 away at Hannover 96, but they will no doubts be a very tough opposition for RB Leipzig in the last game of the day on Sunday.
