Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen: Preview and Prediction
Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Saturday, 15th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Weserstadion, Bremen.
Werder Bremen fans have to wait until matchday 5 to see their team winning the first match of the season when they defeated Wolfsburg at home by a 2-1 margin. They lost in all four matches before that and the new found confidence from the win is backed with a 2-2 draw at Darmstadt just before the international break. They have a lot of catching up to do as they are coming into the matchday 7 fixture against Bayer Leverkusen sitting just outside the relegation zone.
Bayer Leverkusen on the other hand are fairly inconsistent and are performing way below their potential. After 6 match-days into the new season, they have won 3, lost 2 and drawn 1. They are coming on the back of a surprise 2-0 win against Borussia Dortmund. But couldn’t they do better than dropping points against sides like Augsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt.
