Read on for Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkuse Prediction and football tips.

Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkuse Match Previews

Bremen are currently mired in the relegation zone, sitting at 17th (second-to-last) with 18 points after winning just four matches so far this season. Florian Kohfeldt’s side are just a point ahead of bottom- team Paderborn and five points behind 16th-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf.

In contrast, Leverkusen are fifth with 47 points and four points behind fourth-placed RB Leipzig.

WINLESS IN SIX MATCHES

Bremen are winless in their last six league games, failing to nail the full three points again since their 1-0 victory at Fortuna Dusseldorf. Since then, Die Werderaner suffered five consecutive losses, whilst failing to produce a goal in four of those fixtures. Also, Bremen tasted three defeats at home in that span and went scoreless on all occasions.

In their latest league match, Bremen saw hosts Hertha BSC force a 2-2 draw after taking an early 2-0 halftime lead.

Meanwhile, Leverkusen were beaten just once (1-2 at Hoffenheim) in their last six league fixtures but rebounded mightily to nail four wins and one draw in their next five games. One of those wins was away when they prevailed at Union Berlin 3-2, whilst the lone draw was 1-1 at RB Leipzig.

BIG WIN AT HOME

In their latest league fixture, Peter Boz’s men ran riot over visiting Eintracht Frankfurt 4-0, with forward Paulinho scoring a brace for the hosts.

Leverkusen could also count a lot on winger/striker Kevin Volland and striker Lucas Alario when they aim to get all three points at the expense of Bremen.

The last time both clubs met in the league at Weserstadion, Leverkusen walloped Bremen 6-2, whilst in their latest league game held at BayArena, Alario scored a 58th-minute goal as Leverkusen forced a 2-2 draw after the hosts trailed 1-2 after 48 minutes.

Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkuse Prediction

• Werder Bremen’s dismal form looks yet to end, as the team still haven’t won any of their last 5 games. In the last 16 games across all competitions, they have managed to win just 3 times and draw one – putting them well into the relegation zone at 17th place. They are at least 8 points behind the safe spot at 16th place, so it will be a tough challenge for them to get out of their current spot.

• Bayer Leverkusen are currently 5th place and are looking into breaking into the top 4 for a spot in the Champions League. Borussia M’gladbach leads them by 2 points, and a win from this fixture might be enough to get that spot.

• The visitors were playing solid football before the postponement, where they were unbeaten in the last 10 games (W9 D1). Although they managed to draw with the hosts during their first meet at the start of the season, things don’t seem to go in favor of Werder Bremen now. There’s much to wonder whether the long break have got them back to their old form again, so I would take the 0.75 handicap on Leverkusen now.
