Next Sunday at 5:30pm GMT, on matchday 4 of the Bundesliga, we will see Werder play Frankfurt at the Wohninvest Weserstadion.

Frankfurt currently sit in fifteenth place as they travel to ninth placed Werder.

This season’s Bundesliga campaign, has so far seen Werder Bremen achieve five points

The warning signs are there for Ole Werner going into this game, following a loss to Borussia Dortmund in their last game and a draw against Stuttgart before that. Only a positive result will be good enough.

Also, Werder seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with two draws in three meetings. Now they have 1 matches won, 0 games lost and 2 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in ninth place, with a total of five points having won one game and drawn two meetings.

When Werder host Frankfurt, they will do so on the back of one dart on their own ground.

Werder Bremen will have 8 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring record of seven goals. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Oliver Burke (2), Niclas Fullkrug (2), and Leonardo Bittencourt (1). Ole Werner will know the risks of constantly leaking goals throughout the season, with six goals conceded so far. He needs to find a way to shore-up the defence, in order that opponents are unable to take advantage of this.

Werder are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Ole Werner’s selection choices significantly.

Eintracht Frankfurt go into this meeting with two points secured

Frankfurt have suffered at the hands of FC Köln and Hertha in their previous two matches, with two successive draws. They go into this game with the hope of taking all three points.

Also, with two draws in two matches, Manager Oliver Glasner has plenty to ponder, going into the next fixture, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With a fifteenth position in the league and 0 wins, 1 losses and 2 draws, they currently have two points in the League having drawn two games and lost one game.

Frankfurt have drawn one game of their one League matches away from home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Eintracht Frankfurt’s points to 5 in the League.

Frankfurt’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Oliver Glasner, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
