SC Freiburg: Having a decent campaign (Recent Form: DWLLDW)
Freiburg are on 7th place in Bundesliga with 37 points. They are currently just 2 points short of 6th Wolfsburg (UEFA Europa League qualification). Freiburg host Werder on Saturday. “Bremen looked dangerous [against Bayer Leverkusen] at the start of the second half, and missed multiple chances to equalise. They were playing well when they conceded a third and never really recovered. Bremen need to put points on the board and will run and fight for their lives. After losing to Leverkusen, they'll come at us with a fire in their bellies. So we need to halt that from the first minute, and also react clever tactically,” said goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow.
Probable line-ups: Schwolow; Gulde, Lienhart, Heintz; Schmid, R. Koch, Höfler, Günter; Höler, Grifo; Petersen
Werder Bremen: Relegation candidates (Recent Form: LDLLLL)
Werder sit on 17th position in the standings with 18 points. They are in the direct drop zone, being already 9 points shy of 15th Mainz (safe spot) so their situation looks pretty bad. Anyway, coach Florian Kohfeldt remains optimistic: “We will not let anything slip away, but try to reverse the trend with our will and action. I am convinced that we will be able to stay in the league.” Now it’s time for an away encounter. “There isn't a bad word to say about Freiburg. How they've worked over the last ten years, building themselves up with limited resources, has been very impressive. Their journey pleases me,” said sporting director Frank Baumann.
Probable line-ups: Pavlenka; Veljkovic, Vogt, Moisander; Gebre Selassie, M. Eggestein, Klaassen, Augustinsson; Bittencourt, Rashica; Selke
THE BETTING VERDICT:
All in all, I think that hosts are favourites of this clash. Freiburg are having a fine season on the contrary to Werder so perhaps the home side may get all 3 points in this outing.
