Werder Bremen is hosting Borussia Dortmund at Weserstadion in round 12 in the German Bundesliga.
Werder had a solid start of the season, but they are on a negative run now, and Werder hasn’t won any of their last 9 games while losing 4 of their last 5, and their last 3 straight games. During their last 3 games, Werder has conceded 9 goals, which is an average of 3 conceded goals per game. For now, Werder is in 13th place with 11 points, 14 scored goals, and 19 conceded goals. Werder was playing against Leipzig on the road in their latest Bundesliga game, and they have had 45% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 80% of the correct passes. Werder has conceded 2 goals in the first half, and they weren’t able to recover from that. Werder has lost this match 2-0. Werder has failed to score a goal in only 1 game so far this season, which is good, but their defense is terrible as of late. Fullkrug has scored 4 goals for Werder so far, while Bittencourt added 3 goals. Fullkrug, Rashica, and Selke are all injured, and they will miss this game. Werder has barely escaped the relegation last season, but I believe they are better this season, and I expect this season not to be so hard.
Well, there is an earthquake in Borussia Dortmund. After a disastrous loss against Stuttgart at home this past weekend, Borussia’s head coach Favre got fired, and the assistant coach Terzic has taken over the team. With this loss, Borussia has slipped down to 5th place with 19 points, 23 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals so far. In the mentioned game against Stuttgart, Borussia has had massive 71% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 87% of the correct passes. Despite the massive possession, Borussia was terrible, slow, and out of focus on both ends. Borussia Dortmund has lost this game 1-5 which is one of the worst defeats in their history. As far as the Champions League goes, Borussia will be playing against Sevilla in the next stage, which is the opponent they could beat. Haaland is the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 10 goals, but he is injured, and Borussia will miss him greatly. Sancho has added 5 assists. Schmelzer, Delaney, and Meunier are also injured. I think this coaching change was necessary, and I believe this will cause a positive shock between the players, and I see them getting back to good form soon.
Werder hasn’t lost any of their last 9 games, while Dortmund hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games on the road. The trends are pretty even here, but Borussia is the better team here, and I believe this coaching change will be good for them. I will side with Borussia Dortmund on the road.
