Bundesliga action on Saturday as Werder and Gladbach meet at the Wohninvest Weserstadion – 6:30pm GMT.

It’s a trip to the Wohninvest Weserstadion for tenth placed Werder on Saturday, as they take on sixth placed Gladbach.

Werder Bremen arrive at this game, having secured nine points so far this season

Werder’s pride is now at stake, as they will not wish for another successive poor result. They recently drew 1-1 away to Bayer Leverkusen, which followed the loss to Augsburg. They will be eager to improve in this next fixture.

Also, with one draws in one game, Werder need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. They currently stand tenth in the League, with nine points for a total of 2 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws having won two meetings, drawn three fixtures, and lost two matches.

Werder have drawn one game and lost two meetings of their three League matches at home this season.

Werder Bremen will have 12 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good Attacking Performance

Werder will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (13). 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 display so far, having conceded 12 goals in their previous matches.

Werder are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Ole Werner is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without two of his key players.

B Mönchengladbach go into this match with 12 points secured

Gladbach will take a huge positive from their recent 3-0 win against RB Leipzig at Borussia-Park.

Also, with three draws in six matches, Manager Daniel Farke has plenty to ponder, going into the next match, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With 12 points, they currently sit sixth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 1 losses and 3 draws having won three meetings, drawn three fixtures, and lost one game.

Gladbach will travel to Werder with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with three draws.

Victory for B Mönchengladbach would take their points tally to 15 so far this season.

A solid defensive team

Gladbach have a solid defence, with only five goals conceded in their previous fixtures. This has been an average season so far, in terms of performance and entertainment, even though they have delivered a decent rate of goals (10). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Marcus Thuram (3), Jonas Hofmann (3), and Ramy Bensebaini (2).

Gladbach are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Daniel Farke’s selection choices significantly.
