Sports news - Get €5 FreeBet - Werder Bremen’s unimpressive beginning in the season is surely seen in their latest position on the table. With Schalke on an impressive run at present, a change in luck does not look to be on the side of the hosts this weekend either.
Werder Bremen’s efforts to climb up higher before the international break was made useless by Borussia Monchengladbach, who pulled off an easy 3-1 victory over them on the road. With only two stingy wins to boast of, the hosts are now only two points shy of falling into the relegation zone. The hosts have also had a taste of achievement just once on home soil this season, that too against the unfortunate Augsburg.
On the other hand, Schalke have been unbeaten in their last four games in all matches. The away side’s previous clash at home saw them using alongside Dusseldorf in a six-goal thriller, with both teams made three goals apiece. Their preceding trip on the road, though, witnessed them secure all three points against Augsburg with the 3-1 scorecard.
Also, the guests have tripped just once in their outings so far. It is also worth to mention that Werder Bremen have acquired the bragging rights just twice in their preceding ten clashes with this rival here. As such, Schalke is sizing up to be the fans’ favourites to come out on top this weekend. Be that as it may, Werder Bremen have been forcing their rivals to share the spoils with them in their previous two games here in a running. Hence the best punt would have to be a dual chance backing Schalke.
Moreover, the visitors have only a single clean sheet from their outings up till now and are without one in their previous five. Considering that there have also been goals down either end in their preceding two h2h clashes, count on both teams to have their names on the scoresheet this Saturday.
