Werder Bremen vs Schalke
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Werder Bremen and Schalke are going to open the action in the 25th round of German Bundesliga with a Friday’s evening clash.
Home side is having a pretty decent season as they are positioned in the middle of the table, but they are not so far from challenging one of the continental spots as well.
The hosts haven’t suffered a defeat eight times in a row in all competitions and they are currently six points behind sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen. However, they’ve tied three draw matches and if they want to remain in the race for the top six, home side needs to get back on winning track.
The visitors are probably the biggest underachievers so far in the season as they are sitting on the 14th spot, although they were the runners-up last time.
They are in a terrible form as the visitors managed to pick up just a point from the last five rounds. They even dropped very close to the danger zone as Schalke are only four points ahead of Stuttgart.
Domenico Tedesco needs to get back the team to the winning track and get out of the relegation zone. From the last three outings, Schalke managed to snatch just a point.
Werder Bremen vs Schalke: Head-to-head
In the last three clashes of these two sides, the visiting team was the one to take all three points. Werder Bremen celebrated two times in a row, while Schalke opened the series of away teams’ wins back in 2017. Seven times in a row the crowd haven’t seen a draw, while six straight matches went over 2.5 margin except for the latest one.
Werder Bremen vs Schalke: Prediction
Home side is in a much better momentum and they should be considered as favourites in this clash. Werder Bremen should continue their unbeatable streak by snatching another victory which can bring them closer to the Europa League spot.
Their head to head clashes have been pretty efficient lately and they should continue in the same fashion. Both sides have also been involved in a lot of high scoring matches lately and this one should go over 2.5 margin.
