Werder Bremen – Bayer Leverkusen

Werder Bremen hosts Bayer Leverkusen in a match from the 33th round of the German Bundesliga. These are our thoughts on this clash in the city of Bremen.

Werder are 12th in the Bundesliga with 38 points won so far. Their season so far is nothing special, but at least they are successful in their main goal – to survive. It was not an easy season for Werder, but for another year they managed to keep their place in the league. So, it’s a success for them, for sure.

Right now Werder have a record of 9 wins, 11 draws and 12 defeats. In their last five games Werder won once, made two draws and lost twice. In the last round of the league Werder made a 1-1 draw at home with Borussia Dortmund. Before this Werder suffered a defeat during the visit to Stuttgart.

Bayer Leverkusen on the other hand are 5th in the Bundesliga standings with 51 points won so far. They are just one point behind the 4th Hoffenheim and the Champions League zone, so for them the fight for a Top 4 finish continues. This is Leverkusen’s main goal at the moment.

In their last five games Bayer Leverkusen are inconsistent – two wins, one draw and two losses. Right now Leverkusen are in a run of two consecutive losses, conceded against Borussia Dortmund and Stuttgart. Sadly for them, their form worsened in the wrongest moment possible – during the last few rounds of the league. It depends on them if they can bounce back on their feet and continue the fight for a Top 4 finish. For Leverkusen it’s important to return to the Champions League, but can they do it?

This is our take on the Bundesliga game between Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen. Good luck!
