Team Form

Werder Bremen

Werder Bremen has not been meeting expectations lately. But the win against Bayer Leverkusen can serve as an inspiration to perform better.


The result of Werder Bremen’s recent matches has been a disappointing one. This includes a 7-0 thrashing from Bayern Munchen that was immediately followed by Hertha Berlin’s 3-2 victory. They were literally slipping down the table, until they pulled-off an upset against Bayer Leverkusen wherein they secured a narrow 1-0 victory.


The triumph over Bayer was a crucial one. Bayer stands as one of the strongest in the league and one has to go through the needle’s eye to seal a win.


But despite their lackluster performance, Werder Bremen is still lucky. The relegation zone is the least of their main concerns. Yet, if an inconsistent performance is seen, they might end at the rock bottom part of the table as the season is still, a long way to go.



Braunschweig’s form is not very different from Werder Bremen. They also lost four (4) of their last six (6) matches and so far, their best performance was the victory against Hoffenheim.


Already in the relegation zone, Braunschweig can still make it to the next season. provided that they win all of their remaining matches. They only need four points to go above the dreaded zone. If they can force a stalemate, their Bundesliga campaign remains strong. It is even better if they can trigger an upset for they only need a single point to ensure their survival.


Online betting’s top pick: Werder Bremen

Werder Bremen remains a strong favorite in the match.  Despite their previous mishaps on the pitch, they continue to be a great force to reckon with.
