Both of the teams are eager to improve their game in terms of consistency and the upcoming match can become a starting point for one of them. Werder currently occupies 8th spot and still has the potential to climb into top-6 in order to participate in European Cups next season, since the gap from the sixth Frankfurt is only 7 points. At the same time, an unstable game and negative goal difference can become a serious obstacle for the Bremen’s hopes. Borussia is in a more favourable position, occupying the fourth spot and feeling relatively safe in terms of staying in top-6, but the danger of missing out the Champions League spot to Leipzig which is only one point away constantly haunts Edin Terzic and his players. The first-round match at Signal Iduna Park ended with a tight victory for the hosts (1-0) which gives a certain psychological advantage to Borussia amid the upcoming clash.

Werder Bremen vs. Borussia Dortmund Preview 

Werder Bremen Preview

After a series of three consecutive wins at the end of January, Werder is feverish again, losing to Hoffenheim (2-1), drawing with Darmstadt (1-1) and winning over Koln (1-0). Ole Werner acknowledges this instability and while the defensive capabilities of the team are still questionable, the build-up in attack is slowly improving. In the first-round match, Werder looked helpless in front of Kobel’s gates with only 1 shot on target at the end of the match. There is still room for improvement for Bremen but the question is whether they have the capabilities to please their fans in the upcoming match.

Borussia Dortmund Preview 

Borussia still has to diversify the team’s resources given that the team still participates in the UEFA Champions League. Unfortunately for Terzic, Borussia was not able to get an advantage in the first match in Netherlands (1-1) and everything will be settled at Signul Iduna Park. The talks of potential dismissal of Terzic as a head coach are getting louder, and the key goal for the German specialist is qualification to Champions League for the next season, as well as promotion to quarter finals. After a series of vague Bundesliga matches (draw with Wolfsburg (1-1, loss to Hoffenheim (2-3)), Dortmund improved greatly in the recent match against Union Berlin, dominating the game with a confident 2-0 win. This win, as well as a series of two consecutive wins over Werder in head to head matches, can become an important basis to build on in the upcoming match.

Betting Tips for Werder Bremen vs. Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund Total Over 1.5 Goals

Borussia’s attacking capabilities this season are among Bundesliga’s best, scoring 48 goals in 24 matches. In the away games, Dortmund secured 24 goals in 12 matches (3rd best result in Bundesliga), indicating an average of 2 goals per match. Werder, on the other hand, has a negative goal difference, with 37 conceded goals in 24 matches. Given the current form of teams, Borussia has all the chances to score at least twice. Unibet gives 1.55 for this Werder Bremen vs. Borussia Dortmund prediction.

First Half Winner - Borussia Dortmund

Given the upcoming clash with PSV and the relatively weak bench of Borussia, the upcoming match guests prefer to start the match actively. Borussia won in the first half in their last 5 consecutive matches and given that Werder frequently lacked concentration in their last matches, Dortmund has all the chances to secure a comfortable advantage before the break. Werder Bremen vs. Borussia Dortmund odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 2.37.

Both Teams to Score

Given that Gregor Kobel is still out of game due to muscular problems, Borussia’s last line of defence remains vulnerable. On the other hand, Werder did not score in the home match only twice in the last 12 matches, when two best Bundesliga teams this season, Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich arrived at Weser Stadium. Thus, the exchange of goals in the upcoming match is well-expected. Unibet gives odds of 1.50 for this Werder Bremen vs. Borussia Dortmund tip.
