Bayer Leverkusen to Win
The River Islanders are at home but far from being in comfort. They have lost eight of their last ten competitive fixtures and are staring at another year of battling relegation. Meanwhile, Die Werkself are in the enviable position of top-half security with an advantage of four points for Europa League qualification. They can build on their tally at Werder Bremen's expense whilst ensuring European cup competition participation.
Both Teams to Score and Over/Under 2.5: No & Under
Werder Bremen have the worst Over and Under record in the Bundesliga. However, they have seen the Over 2.5 goals in three of their four meetings. They have managed to get on the scoreboard on three occasions despite being on the losing end in four of these outings. With Leverkusen seeing less than three goals in four of their last five outings, expect the Under 2.5 to come to fruition. Leverkusen's away record of two goals scored in this run does not add optimism for a goal bonanza.
Odd or Even: Odd
While the hosts' overall form has been woeful, Leverkusen have struggled on the road. Their recent run on the road has left a lot to be desired and it has seen Borussia Dortmund overtake them in fifth place. Nevertheless, Leverkusen are the form side and will be looking to edge out their rivals. Weserstadion has only seen evens once in the last five fixtures played and expect that trend to continue in a cagey affair without much difference between the two sides.
Werder Bremen vs Leverkusen: Team News and Match Preview
Entering the second half of the campaign, the River Islanders claimed a comfortable top-half position. However, a run of seven successive defeats has put them closer to the drop and another season finish battling relegation is on the cards. Florian Kohfeldt seems bereft of ideas in the dugout as the defensive unit continues to concede. This has had an impact on their attacking output and the form of players has dwindled. Josh Sargent and co remain stranded at the front without much help from their peers.
Die Werkself sacked Peter Bosz and brought in Hannes Wolf but their fate has not changed. They continue to struggle on the road and have allowed rivals to not only catch them but overtake them in the points table. With Borussia Monchengladbach travelling to Allianz Arena to take on Bayern Munich, Leverkusen can add distance with a win over the struggling Werder Bremen. They will need Lucas Alario to be available for the fixture. The Argentine has been their star performer at the front in the 2020/21 campaign following the departures of Kai Havertz and Kevin Volland past summer.
