Werder Bremen is hosting Eintracht Frankfurt at Weserstadion in the postponed match of round 24 in German Bundesliga.
Werder is waking up, and just in time to join the fight to stay in Bundesliga next season. Werder is still in the relegation zone, in 17th place with 25 points, but they are now only 3 points away from the safe zone. Werder has been playing well in their last three games, and they haven’t conceded a goal, while they scored 2. In their most recent match in Bundesliga, Werder was solid with 58% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and 78% of the correct passes. Werder got the lead in the first half, and the result didn’t change again. Werder has won this match 0-1. Rashica is the leading goal scorer for Werder with 7 goals and 6 assists, while Osako, Bittencourt, and Klaassen added 4 goals each. Mohwald, Fullkrug, Toprak, and Pizarro are all still injured and will not be playing. Werder has had a terrible season in every competition they played, but these recent results are a breath of fresh air in Werder and are giving hope to the players and fans that Werder can get out of the relegation zone, or at least to the relegation playoff spot to buy themselves a chance to stay in Bundesliga next season as well.
After two terrible games since the season started again, Eintracht has finally won a match. In their latest game in Bundesliga against Wolfsburg on the road, Eintracht has had 48% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and low 68% of the correct passes. This was a tough game for Eintracht, against the team that is playing great soccer in the attacking end, but Eintracht has endured through those attacks and has won this game 1-2. The defense is as far from good as possible as Eintracht conceded 9 goals in their last three games while scoring 7 goals. Eintracht is in 12th place in the standings with 32 points, 46 scored goals, and 53 conceded goals in 28 games. Hinteregger is still Eintracht’s top goalscorer with 8 goals, while Silva and Paciencia have scored 7 goals each. Filip Kostic has added 10 assists for Eintracht Frankfurt. Paciencia is injured, while Torro is suspended because of the red card he got against Wolfsburg. Same as Werder, Eintracht is also having a bad season, a season where they expected to be in the run for the Europa League. The only difference between Werder and Eintracht is that Eintracht is outside the relegation zone, at least for now.
This should be an interesting game that could go either way. Werder hasn’t won any of their last 4 home games and their home record this season is 1-3-9. Home field advantage doesn’t mean anything these days, but I would still give a slight advantage to Werder because they need this win more. Werder isn’t scoring a lot of goals, and their defense has been solid, but Eintracht is a complete opposite. I think it’s time that one of Werder’s games goes over.
