Werder Bremen is welcoming Borussia M’gladbach to Weserstadion in part of round 28 in German Bundesliga.
Werder is playing bad soccer in Bundesliga this season and they are in low 17th place in the standings with 21 points, in the relegation zone. With only 29 scored goals, Werder is one of the weakest teams in Bundesliga, while with 59 conceded goals, Werder is one of the worst teams in Bundesliga this season. Rashica is the leading goal scorer for Werder with 7 goals and 5 assists, while Osako and Klaassen added 4 goals each. Mohwald, Fullkrug, Toprak, Pizarro, and Augustinsson are all injured, while Bargfrede is suspended because of the yellow cards. In their last match in Bundesliga against Freiburg on the road, Werder was forced to defend throughout the game, and they had only 37% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 74% of the correct passes. Despite being the huge underdog in this match, Werder was able to score an early goal, and then defend really well for the rest of the game, and in the end, Werder has won this game 0-1. One win in the sea of losses doesn’t mean much, but Werder needs every point they can get to keep their hopes of staying in Bundesliga alive. There are enough games left for Werder to keep their Bundesliga status, but there is not a lot of room for error, and Werder is making a lot of errors this season.
M’gladbach has been pretty consistent this season, but unfortunately, they lost their latest Bundesliga game against Leverkusen at home. M’gladbach has had 45% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 79% of accurate passes in this game. Borussia has lost this game 1-3 at home, but Leverkusen would be hard to beat to any team in Bundesliga with the way they are playing right now. With this loss, Borussia has dropped in the standings to 5th place where they have 52 points now, and I’m afraid that M’gladbach’s chances for the title are now gone. Plea has scored 9 goals and added 8 assists for Borussia this season, while Thuram scored 8 goals and added 7 assists. Zakaria and Johnson are the only two injured players for Borussia M’gladbach. I like Borussia M’gladbach and the way they are playing this season, and at some point, Borussia was even at the top of Bundesliga, but Bayern and Dortmund are just too strong this season. There is still a chance that Borussia M’gladbach will end up in one of the top four spots and that they will get the chance to go to the Champions League, but for that to happen, M’gladbach must get back on winning track, and Werder might be the perfect team for that.
Werder has lost their last three home games against Borussia M’gladbach. There is no doubt that M’gladbach is the better team here and they are playing in the much better form. I think that Borussia gets back on winning track here and I don’t think that Werder can keep the clean sheet twice in a row.
