Bundesliga – SC Freiburg – Werder Bremen on Match-day 11
Freiburg at home against Werder – Saturday – 3:30pm GMT – Europa-Park-Stadion.
Werder, currently sitting in ninth place, face the formidable task of an away trip to Freiburg, who currently sit third in the League.
SC Freiburg’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 18 points this season
It was three points secured for Freiburg in their last fixture, beating Bayern Munich 5-0 at Allianz Arena.
Also, with three draws in five fixtures, Freiburg need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. Now they have 5 matches won, 2 games lost and 3 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in third place, with a total of 18 points having won five fixtures, drawn three matches, and lost two games.
When Freiburg host Werder, they will do so on the back of two wins, one draw, and one defeat on their own ground.
SC Freiburg will have 21 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Christian Streich could be missing up to four of their players through injury or illness for the game on Saturday.
Werder Bremen have so far accrued 15 points in this season of the Bundesliga
Ole Werner will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.
Also, Werder keep finding ways to win, having secured four victories in their last eight matches is astonishing this season. With a ninth position in the league and 4 wins, 3 losses and 3 draws, they currently have 15 points in the League having won four games, drawn three games, and lost three matches.
Werder will travel to Freiburg with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with three victories and two draws.
Winning this fixture will see Werder Bremen on 18 points.
Good Attacking Performance
They have a good scoring record of 20 goals (17 from open play and three penalties). Their stand out attacking players have been Niclas Fullkrug (8), Marvin Ducksch (2), and Oliver Burke (2). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Werder so far, having conceded 16 goals in their last matches so far.
Werder’s squad has depth, but even so, Ole Werner is likely to be missing two of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.
