Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin Match Preview
Werder Bremen host Union Berlin desperate for points to escape the relegation zone as they sit 16th after 20 games played, just a point clear of Fortuna Dusseldorf and two clear of rock-bottomed Paderborn. They will hope to build on the positives of recent and close the six-point gap to both Berlin rivals, which could make the battle for top-flight survival all the more interesting.
Die Werderaner have shocked Borussia Dortmund (3-2) in DFB Pokal at this ground just days ago, as Davie Selke, Leonardo Bittencourt, and Milot Rashica all made it on the scoresheet. They finally felt more confident moving forward and with that in mind, there will be a lot to build on here as well.
Union Berlin narrowly beat 4th tier rivals Verl with a very late winner from Robert Andrich and they’ll hope this will be enough to put an unconvincing Bundesliga streak behind them. They bagged just one win in five games since mid-December (beating Augsburg 2-0) and saw four losses along the way, which could see the travelling fans worried.
Eiserne have been conceding numbers of goals on the regular, conceding 12 in those four losses, as they saw Hoffenheim (0-2), Fortuna Dusseldorf (2-1), Leipzig (3-1), and Borussia Dortmund (5-0 most recently) secure the points. They’ll need more for an upset at Wohninvest Weserstadion and we don’t see them making it happen at this point.
We will thus back Werder Bremen to build on the mid-week win over BVB have and we’ll go for a Home win at 11/10 with bet365, which seems like the best approach to the fixture despite their struggles for consistency this term.
Union Berlin have been scoring goals on the regular themselves, though, and this promises an exciting challenge in Bremen. With hope we’ll see them get on the scoresheet too, we’re backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/11 with BetVictor.
