Werder Bremen vs Schalke Match Preview
Schalke have struggled to cope with their tough schedule and suffered four losses in their last five outings, earning just a point in a goalless Bundesliga draw against Freiburg and seeing a thriller Champions League loss to Manchester City along the way. They now travel to Bremen hoping to pick it up ahead of the trip to England but should be in for another tough challenge.
Die Konigsblauen struggled to make the goals scored count and the late February trip to Mainz 05 and a thrashing 3-0 loss could be all the more worrying, emphasizing their recent woes in the final third just as much.
Bremen will hope they can capitalize on the rivals’ woes and extend a ten-match unbeaten streak of their own, but we have seen them struggling to turn clashes their way as well. They come into the match with three consecutive draws behind them, holding off Hertha (1-1), Stuttgart (1-1), and Wolfsburg (1-1) since mid-February.
Die Werderaner have been scoring goals on the regular and will now hope to replicate such displays at Weserstadion, where the found the net 11 times in the last five outings. Florian Kohfeldt should have no troubles getting his men very motivated to capitalize and we do see them doing so on Friday.
We’ll thus stick with a Home win which comes at 19/20 with William Hill and hope to see Bremen turn an exciting contest in front of the home crowd their way, desperate for points to close the six-point gap to the league’s top 6.
Schalke have to be hungry for points and we thus expect an exciting challenge from them too, which promises goals as well. We’ll thus also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with bet365, which would make it seventh such occasion in eight head-to-head clashes as well.
