When Borussia Dortmund hosts Werder Bremen on Friday night in the Bundesliga, they’ll be looking to win a fifth straight game. The visitors, who have dropped five of their first seven games, will be just two points above the relegation zone coming into this weekend’s action.
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen
When Borussia Dortmund hosts Werder Bremen on Friday, they have the opportunity to take the lead in the Bundesliga. These two, Werder Bremen in 14th place and Dortmund in fourth, are at opposite ends of the standings. Dortmund will look to capitalize on the fact that this is the first league game following the international break.
They enter this game unbeaten in their previous four games. Dortmund are two points behind the leader, Bayer Leverkusen. They defeated Union Berlin 4-2 in their final game before the international break. They have won three of their last four games. Borussia Dortmund have only kept two clean sheets in their last five games. One of the three undefeated teams in the Bundesliga is Dortmund.
Werder Bremen enters this match with the hope that their performance over the international break will benefit them. They had lost two of the previous three games and had not won any of them at halftime. Their defense has been their major weakness; they have let up goals in their last four games.
In three of the four games, Werder Bremen has given up three goals or more. They have only kept one clean sheet in their last four league games. While over 3.5 goals have been scored in four of their last five games. Their last four Bundesliga games, Werder Bremen have lost three of them.
Although Borussia Dortmund has already kept two clean sheets this season, their defensive performance cannot be regarded as exceptional. Eight goals have been given up by the Black and Yellows thus far. This is one more than they gave up at this stage of the previous campaign. In just two of their seven games thus far, neither team has been able to score.
The latest Werder Bremen games have been incredibly entertaining. At least five goals were scored in five of the last seven games the visitors played in all competitions. In five of those games, both teams scored.
Bremer Werder Bremen’s final game before the international week ended in a 3-2 loss to Hoffenheim at home. Their road performance is also lacking, as they have dropped their last six road league games. Bremen has only kept one clean sheet in their first seven league games, losing five of them while allowing 17 goals to be scored. They should be backed to win and for both teams to score, given they have let up exactly four goals in three of these games and have suffered 4-2 losses in their last two away games.
