Bayer Leverkusen v Werder Bremen: Bundesliga Match-day 7
Bundesliga action on Saturday as Bayer and Werder meet at the Bay Arena – 3:30pm GMT.
Bayer currently sitting in seventeenth place, are eight places lower than ninth placed Werder, heading into the clash.
Struggling Bayer Leverkusen, welcome fancied Werder Bremen this Saturday
Bayer’s next opponents will smell blood if they begin the next match with all guns blazing. Whilst it’s understandable that they may want to do this, after their recent 2-2 draw at Hertha and previous loss to SC Freiburg, The Company’s Eleven must get a positive result and keep defensively solid.
Also, Gerardo Seoane may ponder the reasons why his Bayer team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But four defeats out of the last six fixtures, should be all the analysis that he really needs. With a seventeenth position in the league and 1 wins, 4 losses and 1 draws, they currently have four points in the League having won one game, drawn one game, and lost four matches.
When Bayer host Werder, they will do so on the back of three losses on their own ground.
Bayer Leverkusen will have 7 points if they manage to secure a victory.
Gerardo Seoane will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of five of his Bayer players.
With the Bundesliga season well into its stride, Werder Bremen have managed to gain eight points
Also, Ole Werner’s Werder have lost two of their last three meetings this season. With eight points, they currently sit ninth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws having won two matches, drawn two matches, and lost two meetings.
Werder will travel to Bayer with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two victories and one draw.
Werder Bremen will see 11 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Good Attacking Performance
This has been a good season so far for Werder, in terms of goals scored (12). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Niclas Fullkrug (5), Oliver Burke (2), and Leonardo Bittencourt (2). Werder have shown a poor defensive solidity so far, having conceded 11 goals in their previous games.
It is likely that three key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Ole Werner and his Werder team.
