Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction, Lineups & Betting Tips
Round 32 in German Bundesliga will be wrapped up at the “Weserstadion” in Bremen where Weder takes on Borussia Dortmund on Sunday night.
While Werder Bremen just plays rest of the season, seven points over the 16th position, Borussia Dortmund needs a win to make its Champions League qualification almost certain.
Dortmund’s boss Peter Stöger is unlikely to make major changes after the 4-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen last weekend. Manuel Akanji should get another chance as a left-back, following a strong performance last weekend, while Sokratis and Ömer Toprak should build the centre-back duo. Two players who need to improve their form in order to get World Cup call ups, Marco Reus and Mario Götze, will play in midfield, whilst English youngster Jadon Sancho looks first-choice on the left wing right now. Max Phillip is once again expected to lead BVB’s attack here.
Werder Bremen’s coach has bigger selection headache this time. Philipp Bargfrede and Florian Kainz are both suspended for this round, while Marco Friedl could get another chance at the left-back, with Swedish defender Ludwig Augustinsson still recovering from a thigh injury.
There were 3 or more goals in the last 8 and in 10 out of the last 11 games involving Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund. So our betting prediction goes on the goal scoring markets and we expect more than three goals this time – Over 3 Goals in Sunday night. There were 4 or more goals in six of their last 11 meetings. However, if there are just three goals scored here, you will have your stake refunded.
