Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig Match Preview
Werder Bremen host RB Leipzig for their Matchday 5 clash on Saturday afternoon, looking to build on a two-match winning streak and keep up with the top of the Bundesliga table early in the new campaign. They’ve found their best form up front and will surely want to keep it up, despite great injury woes and 11 players sidelined for the clash.
Die Werderaner have kicked off the league campaign with losses to Fortuna Düsseldorf (1-3) and Hoffenheim (3-2) but bounced to the winning ways more recently, as they beat Augsburg (3-2) ahead of the International break and Union Berlin (1-2) after it. The odd turn of events should have Claudio Pizarro leading the attacking line here, backed by Davy Klaassen.
RB Leipzig will surely be more of a challenge, though, and they travel to Wohninvest Weserstadion on the back of a 1-2 win over Benfica – where Timo Werner’s brace proved enough for all three Champions League points. They’ve extended a six-match unbeaten streak across competitions and top Bundesliga at this point, which should have them very motivated to keep it up.
Die Bullen have seen a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich beforehand, which only ended a streak of four wins – where they beat Osnabruck (2-3), Union Berlin (0-4), Eintracht Frankfurt (2-1), and Borussia M’gladbach (1-3) with an in-form attacking line impressing early in the new campaign.
We feel they will now be able to build on such performances here, as we now back RB Leipzig to their sixth win in seven outings across competitions – which comes at 78/100 with William Hill and has already caught the eye of many value seekers.
We don’t feel they’re in for an easy task, though, and this should mean a serious challenge in Bremen. We’ll thus go for another exciting game with goals here and back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with William Hill, which feels like buying money for old rope.
