Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Sunday, 28 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Werder host Bayer Leverkusen in the last game of the Matchday No 9 on Sunday afternoon at Weserstadion. The hosts will enter the match as form favourites following a fine 0-2 victory over Schalke 04 away at VELTINS-Arena last weekend. It was Maximilian Eggestein who made the difference netting two goals for Die Werderaner in Gelsenkirchen.
He should have plenty of room to create in the final third on Sunday given Leverkusen’s poor defensive displays of late. Die Werkself allowed as many as five goals in last two matches against the likes of Hannover and Zurich. They are winless in last three games in all competitions. A serious turnaround in form is required if Heiko Herrlich wants to keep his job on the bench.
Herrlich will need to work hard on fixing the obvious holes at the back since his men allowed way too many easy goals in the last couple of weeks.
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Head-to-head
Werder lead the lead to head to head tie by 9 wins ahead of 82nd meeting with Die Werkself.
Bayer Leverkusen were much better of late, though, winning two and drawing two of last four matches against Die Werderaner.
Trips to Bremen, however, rarely went well for Bayer Leverkusen who won just 5 and lost 19 of 40 H2H outings at Weserstadion.
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Bayer allowed two or more goals in four of last five matches in all competitions. They were lucky to save a point at home against Hannover last weekend. The most recent of failures came on Thursday night when they fell 3-2 to Swiss Zurich on the road. The defeat halted team’s push for the top spot in the Group A of Europa League.
Bremen notched five goals in back-to-back home wins over Hertha and Wolfsburg. We do find them favourites here based on both H2H history and current form.
The alternative bet would be BTTS given Leverkusen’s playing style in the most recent set of fixtures.
