The evening game in the Bundesliga will see two relegation threatened teams come face to face. Werder Bremen were looking like a team that was about to get cut off from the pack until last weekend when Franko Di Santo scored twice and Bremen beat Mainz 2-1. Amazingly Bremen are level with Borussia Dortmund but that is due to Dortmunds struggles rather than Bremens brilliance. One bright spark for Werder Bremen this season has been the emergence of Franko Di Santo, the South American has scored six in eight games and is the main reason that Werder Bremen have kept in touch at the bottom of the table. Without Di Santo and I think Werder Bremen would already be odds on for relegation.
On the other side will be Stuttgart who have been involved in some crazy games of late with the exception of the four nil loss last weekend Stuttgart have scored two or more in three straight games. Harnik will lead the line for a Stuttgart team that will be hoping to pull away from the relegation zone with a win here. This is a tough ask, for both teams. Neither are playing all that well but both have lots of individual talent and this game could well be decided by a piece of individiual brilliance.

For me the value bet here is the overs. Neither team has shown a propensity for good defending, both teams have strikers capable of scoring goals and midifielders with the ability to pick out the pass. I am going to take the overs in a game that could be a cracker. I shall enjoy sitting down to watch it on BT Sport.
