One of the games of the weekend in the Bundesliga will see Werder Bremen host Borussia Dortmund on Saturday evening. Werder Bremen have struggled this season with just ten points in ten games.Remarkably Bremen have lost four of their five home games and are really struggling at home scoring just two and conceding nine in those five games. Bremen did put in a really solid performance against Bayern Munich at home a couple of weeks back and just lost that game by a solitary goal in a game where they could have taken something from the Champions. They face a huge task here though with A Borussia Dortmund team that has scored nineteen goals in their last five games.
Borussia Dortmund have a chance to make up some ground on Bayern Munich as the Champions dropped points on friday night, their first dropped poitns of the season. If Dortmund want to compete for the Bundesliga they simply have to win games like this and close the gap on Bayern whenever they can. Marco Reus and Aubeymeyang are having sensational seasons with the latter netting thirteen goals in ten games this season and scoring a hatful more in Europe as well. After a really solid start to the season Borussia Dortmund struggled for three games before coming back with four wins on the bounce.
The Bundesliga is sometimes a crazy league to watch and to handicap, I feel like Bremen are going to give Borussia Dortmund a good game here but I think in the end Borussia Dortmund's offence will be the difference. Looking at how Borussia have played in recent weeks though it's hard to see them not scoring two or three and that is where Bremen's problems lie, their lack of goals is tough to see them getting anything from this one. I am going to take Borussia Dortmund -1 on the handicap here as I think Reus and Aubeymeyang prove to be the difference in the end.
