Werder Bremen is welcoming Wolfsburg to Weserstadion in part of round 30 in German Bundesliga.
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. Earlier this week, Werder was playing against Eintracht at home, which was a postponed game of round 24. Werder has had 50% of ball possession in that game, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 77% of the correct passes. As good as Werder was in the attacking end, their defense was just too bad in this game and Werder has lost this match 0-3. Werder has scored only 30 goals this season in 29 games, which is an average of just above 1 goal per game, but they conceded massive 62 goals, which is an average of over 2 goals per game. Rashica is Werder’s best player this season with 7 scored goals and 6 assists, but it’s hard to do better where there is no support from the rest of the team. Mohwald, Fullkrug, Toprak, Pizarro, and Sahin are all injured and none of them will play in this game. There is four-game left in the season, and Werder needs at least 4 points from those 4 games, which is possible, but Werder must play their best soccer of the season for that to happen. Can Werder get focused enough to stay in Bundesliga, I hope so, for their sake.
Wolfsburg is a good and talented team, and I like their soccer style, but sometimes they act like kids on the defensive end and that has cost them a lot of points this season. Wolfsburg is still in the Europa League spot, 6th place with 42 points, but Hoffenheim is right behind them with the same amount of points. In their Bundesliga game against Eintracht at home last weekend, Wolfsburg was the better team with 52% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 72% of the correct passes. Wolfsburg had a draw in their pocket until 85th minute when they lost focus and conceded a goal, and in the end, lost this match 1-2. Weghorst has scored 11 goals for Wolfsburg this season, While Arnold added 8 assists. Camacho, Karamoko, Otavio, and Wiliam are injured, while Steffen will sit this one out because of the yellow cards. Some of these injuries are a potential problem for coach Glasner, but Wolfsburg is facing a team that is also struggling with injuries. The last 4 games will be tough for Wolfsburg, and the schedule is not their friend, but Wolfsburg is a solid team that needs just a few more points to get into the Europa League.
The trends are on Werder’s side, especially when they are playing at home, but this whole season has been a massive flop for Werder and their form has been nonexisting. Both teams could use a win here, Werder probably more, but I would still give the advantage to Wolfsburg. Instead of choosing a winner, I will pick something on goals, which we saw plenty of in this matchup.
