Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction and Betting Preview 18 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-4
Relegation-threatened Werder Bremen welcome top-four hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen to the Weserstadion on Monday evening for a crunch Bundesliga clash, both sides tussling for bragging rights and most importantly, maximum points.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 26
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen)
Werder Bremen have been heavily underwhelming so far, sitting 17th on the league standings, a whopping five points drowned in the drop zone. In fact, they are only a single point above basement club Paderborn.

If results around Die Werderaner do not improve in the coming weeks, they might as well begin preparing for life in the subordinate German second division. Head coach Florian Kohfeldt has come in for the stick on numerous occasions for his side’s lackluster performances and poor results.

Harboring hopes of sneaking into the Champions League places before the season’s curtains draw close, Bayer Leverkusen will be bent on securing victory here to remain in the top-four picture. However, they will need to guard against complacency to see this game through.

Expect an exciting and enthralling game of football in Bremen on Monday when these two very good footballing sides lock horns. Goals are a surety here.

Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Werder Bremen have been largely disappointing this campaign, struggling to churn out positive results on a regular basis. Already tipped by the bookmakers as one of the favorites for relegation, time is running out for Die Werderaner to turn their fortunes around.

Last time out in the league, Florian Kohfeldt’s charges squandered a comfortable two-goal lead against Hertha Berlin and were forced to settle for a draw. The travelling supporters were sent into frenzy as their side roared ahead very early in the game. However, complacency soon creeped in causing them to settle for a point.

The draw saw them extend their winless streak in the league to six on the trot. This is a worrying stat for a side that are deep-balls into the drop zone. Additionally, they have lost nine of their previous twelve games in the Bundesliga.

It is also worth noting that the hosts have been very disappointing on home turf, spotting an unwanted home record of six defeats on the bounce. The club supporters will have no complaints about their last home loss, however, given they were up against title-chasers Borussia Dortmund. Die Werderaner were easily dispatched by a 2-0 scoreline.

Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, have been high-flying in the league so far, sitting fifth on the standings, just four points adrift of fourth-placed RB Leipzig. A win here will see them move within a point reach of the Champions League places. 

Sitting eight points behind league-leaders Bayern Munich, with a game in hand, they are still in the running for the league title. Rule these set of resilient players at your own peril. They went for the kill on the last match-day, sending four unanswered goals past Frankfurt to continue their push for top-four success.

Die Werkself have been particularly impressive on their travels having garnered 22 points from a possible 36. Needless to say, that’s a fantastic record. Only two sides have bettered their supreme away record – Bayern Munich and Dortmund. Expect a goal-fest in Bremen on Monday.

Werder Bremen: Niclas Fullkrug and Ilia Gruev.

Bayer Leverkusen: No injuries or suspensions.
