Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen: Preview and Predictions
Date: Saturday, 20th May 2017
Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund.
Die Schwarzgelben will be looking to secure the automatic UEFA Champions League qualification since they have the same point count as TSG Hoffenheim, but they need a victory to clinch the 3rd position.
The guests are also hoping they can reach UEFA Europa League spot, but after the two consecutive defeats, their chances are reduced significantly.
Thomas Tuchel was extremely frustrated last Saturday when they visited WWK Arena. FC Augsburg managed to resist BVB’s pressure and save the scoreline from altering since the result as 1-1.
Dortmund are one of the three teams that will be looking to remain unbeaten at home throughout the whole Bundesliga season. Twelve wins and four draws along with 37 goals scored and only 9 allowed – Dortmund’s performance at Signal Iduna Park is awe-inspiring.
SV Werder Bremen
After the unforgettable run, Nouri’s men were stopped in Cologne. But that was an overture for the defeat they will long remember. Last Saturday at Weserstadion, TSG Hoffenheim obliterated them; after only 50 minutes, the scoreline showed 0-5 in favor of Julian Nagelsmann’s side. Werder’s attackers managed to soothe the crowd but a 3-5 home defeat remains a massive embarrassment.
The guests will be hoping to overtake the 6th position from SC Freiburg however, they need three points at Westfalenstadion for a start.
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
The last four outings between the two sides were the entertaining ones. BVB were victorious but each time Werder scored at least once. SV Werder Bremen are without a win in Dortmund since 2009.
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Dortmund is lethal at home turf, and with SV Werder’s horrible defensive performances and sharp attack, we can expect a high-scoring affair at Signal Iduna Park. Both teams will be looking for three points, especially the guests, so we will probably see an intense duel from the start.
