Wolfsburg vs Werder Bremen Match Preview
Werder Bremen have an excellent recent head-to-head record against Wolfsburg and look to be in good enough form to dent their hosts’ aspirations of Champions League qualification.
The stats above reveal how Werder have become a bogey team for Wolfsburg in the last few years, more than making up for a 6-0 defeat they suffered at this ground in 2015.
And the River Islanders, despite being in mid-table of the Bundesliga, have been difficult to beat of late, putting together a seven-match undefeated sequence which has included knocking Borussia Dortmund out of the DFB-Pokal away from home.
In fairness, Wolfsburg are also going well and they will not have given up hope of catching either of the third and fourth-placed clubs, Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig, to clinch a return to the Champions League group stage for next term. Bruno Labbadia’s side began the weekend fifth, five points behind Gladbach in third.
But with Werder having a cleaner bill of health in terms of injuries, and Max Kruse sure to be keen to score against his former club, the visitors are backed to continue their recent superiority when taking on the Wolves.
