Werder Bremen will be at home this Sunday, as they look for a second win in five Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen will be the visitors, as they search for a second straight victory in the German top flight.
Two sides that are locked in a battle for positions in the middle of the Bundesliga standings will clash on Sunday. Werder Bremen look safe at present from the threat of relegation, as they sit eleven points above the drop zone. However, they will be keen to get back on track as they search for a finish in the top half of the standings. Werder has lost three of their last four matches in the Bundesliga, but they could rise to ninth overall if they picked up a tenth win of the campaign this weekend.
However, they will need to put a disappointing performance from their previous match behind them, as they were beaten 2-1 on the road by Augsburg last weekend. Werder paid the price for making a slow start to the second half in that fixture, with Augsburg netting the crucial winning goal after just a minute of the restart.
Things are also looking up for Bayer Leverkusen at present, as they sit ninth in the overall standings. They could yet have their sights set on a push for a European finish this term, as they currently sit eight points off the top six. However, they will need to be much more consistent in the Bundesliga, as they have won twice, lost twice, and drawn once over their previous five.
But, they should come into this game in good confidence after they picked up a dominant 4-1 win in their most recent fixture. After a cagey opening half, Moussa Diaby and Amine Adil scored second half goals to seal the comfortable win at BayArena.
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Head to Head
Each of the previous three meetings between these sides have ended in draws, which includes the most recent clash, which was a 1-1 draw at Bay Arena in September. However, Leverkusen is unbeaten in five previous fixtures against Werder.
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Leverkusen’s record in this fixture is pretty strong, and they were extremely impressive in their most recent fixture. Therefore, it could be worth siding with the away side recording a second straight win this weekend.
