Date: Saturday, December 17
Kick-off: 14:30 GMT
SV Werder Bremen have recorded back-t0-back wins for the first time this season after picking up three points on the road against third place Hertha Berlin. This will come as a huge boost to Alexander Nouri’s side, who will now look to push on and put more points on the board.
This week’s visitors are FC Cologne who’s excellent start to the season puts them in 7th places, just four points behind third. Their only weakness of late has been away matches, losing three of their last four. Those three losses have came as their only defeats in the league this season.
4 of the last 6 fixtures between these sides have ended in a draw and based on FC Koln’s recent performances, they could set up for the point here.
Werder Bremen have scored in every home match this season but are still without a clean sheet at the Weserstadion. An impressive 93% of Werder Bremen’s matches this season have had over 2.5 goals scored in total.
It’s a tough fixture to call because although FC Koln have struggled away and Bremen have the home advantage & recent form, the hosts have actually lost 57% of their home matches. This one is going to be close, but you can still guarantee some goals.
