Sunday 7 June
Weser-Stadion - Bundesliga
Werder Bremen host Wolfsburg at the Weser-Stadion on Sunday, with the two teams battling at opposite ends of the Bundesliga. The home team are looking to hang on to a Europa League position, while the visitors are deep in the relegation quagmire.
Bremen are unbeaten in their last eight matches against Wolfsburg, winning six. That includes each of their last four on home soil, as well as a dramatic 3-2 success at the Volkswagen Arena in December. Die Wolfe’s last win in this fixture was a big one though, with a resounding 6-0 victory in November 2015 completing what was a run of six straight wins at the time.
Midfielders Nuri Sahin and Kevin Mohwald are out of this game for Bremen, although the home team could welcome back veteran forward Claudio Pizarro as an extra option from the bench. However, Niclas Fullkrug, Milot Rashica and Omer Toprak are all doubts for Die Grun-Weissen.
Wolfsburg head coach Oliver Glasner will be without the suspended Renato Steffen for this match, while Josuha Guilavogui is a fitness doubt. Five further players are definitely out for the visitors, with William, Ignacio Camacho, Jerome Roussillon, Mamoudou Karamoko and Paulo Otavio all injured.
Werder Bremen vs. Wolfsburg Preview and Predictions
There’s plenty of hope to be garnered for Werder Bremen from the past meetings between these teams, as well as their own recent form since the Bundesliga returned. Wolfsburg, however, are enjoying a much stronger campaign and have their eyes on European football next season.
Ahead of Wednesday’s crucial home game against Eintracht Frankfurt, Bremen had gone three unbeaten since losing 4-1 to Bayer Leverkusen on their return to action following the Bundesliga’s enforced break. That run included three clean sheets, after 1-0 away wins against Schalke and Freiburg and a goalless draw at home to high-flying Borussia Monchengladbach.
Wolfsburg, on the other hand, have lost both of their home games since the return, while winning their two fixtures on the road against Leverkusen and Augsburg. They may be patchy but these ‘ghost games’ with no fans seem to be suiting them, as they continue to lead a five-way scrap for sixth place and Europa League football next season.
The visitors are the 2.10 favourites to make it a hat-trick of away wins here. Die Werderaner, however, have a great record against Wolfsburg. They are priced at 3.55 to continue their excellent run of form against Die Wolfe, with the draw on Sunday priced at 3.45.
