Freiburg vs Werder Bremen – Bundesliga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction
This Saturday, Bundesliga action continues on Match Day 27 after the first round of matches played last weekend concluded without any issues despite health and safety concerns.
Werder Bremen will travel to Schwarzwald-Stadion for their 26th league appearance of the season. Their last match was a 1-4 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen. They have remained 17th on the league table – second bottom, with 18 points and have lost all but one match in their last six Bundesliga games; LLLLDL. Having scored only 28 times and conceding 59 goals. Werder Bremen has 4W, 6D, and 15L. Head coach, Florian Kohfeldt knows he is at risk of getting the “axe” and will be hoping his side gets at least a draw on Saturday. We can expect a 4-1-4-1 formation with Davie Selke who has only one goal this season leading the attack. Milot Rashica who has 7 goals this season will be looking score a goal or two on Satuday.
Meanwhile, Freiburg come off a 1-1 draw against RB Leipzig. They are 7th on the league table with 37 points with two victories in their last six Bundesliga matches; WDLLWD. With 35GF and 36GA they have a -1GD. Freiburg has 10W, 7D, and 9L this season. Let’s expect a 3-4-3 formation from Coach, Christian Streich with the trio of Holler, Sallai and Waldschmidt leading the attack. Nils Petersen might return to the starting line-up and would be looking to extend his 8-goal tally.
The first leg of this fixture in November, 2019 ended in a 2-2 draw. Bremen’s highest goal scorer, Milot Rashica scored first in the 9th minute of the game, before Nils Petersen of Freiburg equalized in the 28th minute. Later on, Theodor Gebre Selassie (Werder Bremen) scored in the 58th minute before Nils Petersen got his brace and equalized in the 90th minute to save Freiburg from an imminent defeat. Previously, they played on April, 2019 and that ended 2-1 in favor of Werder Bremen.
Werder Bremen might see the end of playing in Germany’s top league after several decades if their fortunes don’t turn around any time soon. Meanwhile, Freiburg has not been able to defeat Bremen in their last two meetings and will be hoping they break the jinx on Saturday.
The prediction is 1-1.
