Werder Bremen vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Date: Friday, 7 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen).
Werder offered a strong resistance to Bayern Munich last weekend, but still left the pitch empty handed after falling 1-2 on the home patch. Even though it was their fourth defeat in past five league affairs, the encouraging performance could raise the spirits inside the dressing room ahead of a winnable round opener on Friday evening against the rock-bottomed Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Florian Kohfeldt’s men have been very easy to break down of late and they’ll be hoping to finally keep things quiet at the back when they host the last-placed opposition. The visitors enjoyed a fine attacking form when they bagged seven goals in two games against Hertha (54-1 win) and Bayern Munich (3-3 draw), but they failed to keep it going last time out when they disappointingly fell 0-1 at home to Mainz 05.

Werder Bremen vs Fortuna Dusseldorf: Prediction
We could see goals on Friday given both teams’ recent spell of form. Each of last five matches Werder played in Bundesliga saw the BTTS option “come in”. On the other side, five of Fortuna’s last six league games produced at least three goals.
The visitors have the second weakest defensive record in the entire league allowing 28 goals in 13 matches. They shipped three or more goals in four of last six Bundesliga outings. This is why we see Friday’s match as a fantastic opportunity for Werder to bring their dreadful run to an end. We’ll back the home win as the main betting option at 1.61, while you can alternatively take the 1.53 odds offered for the hosts to net two or more goals on the evening.
