The Bremen club needed to gather 2 points to secure itself against leaving the tournament. But in the last rounds Kohfeldt ‘s team has got only one point that raises certain concern of the team’s fans.
In two away matches in a row Werder’ team goal possession was 57% of playing time and was creating enough goal chances. But the Musicians have managed to score only 1 goal, having missed 4. But in a home match against RB Leipzig (1:1) the team has managed to gain one point at only 42% of goal possession. At the same time there were no problems with shots on goal (the total number 16 with only 6 on target).
Werder didn’t lose in 11 home matches in a row, having scored 25 points from 33 possible. The last defeat at Weser the Musicians suffered on the 29th of October 29 from Augsburg (0:3).
In 5 away matches in a row the football players from Dortmund are not able to win, having scored only 2 goals. Bearing in mind the fact that for the same period at home stadium the team has won 4 meetings in a row, 3 of which with the “dry” score, it is possible to draw a conclusion on the home status of the Stöger’s team.
Michy Batshuayi ‘s trauma has forced the coach to use Maximilian Philipp in attack in the match against Bayer (4:0). The forward has scored a goal, but Marco Reus who assisted partners twice became the football player of the match. Also the midfielder has shot 6 shots on goal, 3 of which on target.
The Belgian forward will return to the squad by the time of a match against Werder. But whether Stöger will change anything taking into account good team game against Bayer? And Andriy Yarmolenko has managed to discharge from the hospital that increases the field for maneuver for coaching staff.
The Musicians have contributed to Peter Bosch’s resignation and fast arrival of Stöger, having won over Dortmundat their stadium (2:1) in the first circle. However during 5 out of last 6 visits to Bremen the team has gained victories.
Werder to win 3.74
Draw – 4.04
Borussia to win 2.01
The team from Bremen has slowed down a little bit but the future rival on the contrary, has rushed forward in attempt to gain confident place in the Champions League. So are sure, Stöger ‘s team will break home series without defeats of the Musicians.
