Werder Bremen vs Dortmund Preview

Borussia sacked Lucien Favre after a humiliating 5-1 home loss to Stuttgart, and now will play the first game with interim head coach Edin Terzic. Our Werder Bremen vs Dortmund Preview will help you in making your prediction for this Bundesliga encounter.

Werder Bremen Recent Form & Team News

A match against Borussia Dortmund would usually strike fear in the heart of struggling Bundesliga teams like Werder Bremen who are winless across their last eight top-flight fixtures (D5, L3). However, this is a Dortmund side on the verge of their worst winless league run in three years and now managerless after a 5-1 thrashing last time out. All of this will give Bremen hope as they hunt their first home H2H Bundesliga victory since 2014.

They will, however, have to improve upfront after netting just once in each of their five Bundesliga home games (W1, D2, L2). That’s contributed to every Bundesliga fixture here seeing the same result at HT as FT. Opening the scoring for the third time at home this season – after doing so twice within the first 30 minutes previously (W1, D1) – could be Bremen’s route to that first H2H home victory in six years.

Player to watch: Leonardo Bittencourt has netted two home goals, including a first-half opener in Bremen’s sole Bundesliga home win.

Hot stat: Fourteen of the last 15 competitive H2Hs saw both teams score.

Florian Kohfeldt will be without Niclas Fullkrug (calf), Milot Rashica (tendon), and Davie Selke (muscle).

Dortmund Recent Form & Team News

Considering Dortmund have conceded the opener within 35 minutes in four straight Bundesliga games – and picked up just four of 12 possible points when doing so (W1, D1, L2) – attacking the visitors from the off could be a successful tactic. In fact the German giants are yet to score a first-half away goal this Bundesliga campaign (HT: D2, L3), but have scored an average of 1.8 second-half goals per road trip.

Just one clean sheet from Dortmund’s last eight competitive visits to Bremen (W4, D2, L2) also shows recent H2H games haven’t always gone their way, although injury-troubled Dortmund do at least travel here with a four-game unbeaten Bundesliga away run to protect (W3, D1).

Player to watch: Dortmund’s teenage star Gio Reyna could cancel any opener, though, he has netted an equalizing goal in two straight Bundesliga matches.

Edin Terzic cannot count on Thomas Delaney (back), Erling Haaland (muscle), and Thorgan Hazard (muscle). Thomas Meunier (muscle) and Marcel Schmelzer (knee) are also unavailable.
