Bundesliga action on Friday as Werder and Augsburg meet at the Wohninvest Weserstadion – 8:30pm GMT.

This clash sees eighth placed Werder, welcome sixteenth placed Augsburg to the Wohninvest Weserstadion.

Werder Bremen arrive at this match, having secured eight points so far this season

A loss to Bochum away, and then Eintracht Frankfurt at home is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the Bundesliga. Werder will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Also, Werder keep finding ways to win, having secured two victories in their last three games is astonishing this season. They currently stand eighth in the League, with eight points for a total of 2 wins, 1 losses and 2 draws having won two meetings, drawn two fixtures, and lost one game.

Playing at home, Werder have drawn one game and lost one game.

Winning this fixture will see Werder Bremen on 11 points.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring record of 12 goals (10 from open play and two penalties). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Niclas Fullkrug (5), Oliver Burke (2), and Leonardo Bittencourt (2). Werder have shown a very poor defensive display, having conceded 10 goals in their previous matches.

It is likely that three key players will miss Friday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Ole Werner and his Werder team.

Augsburg go into this match with three points secured

Augsburg will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to Hertha at Wwk Arena. Enrico Maassen’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Also, with an unfortunate Augsburg that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Enrico Maassen’s men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With a sixteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 4 losses and 0 draws, they currently have three points in the League having won one game and lost four games.

Augsburg will travel to Werder with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory and one losses.

A victory for Augsburg would put them on 6 points.

Enrico Maassen will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of five of his Augsburg players.
