The 7th placed SC Freiburg are going to host the second-to-last Werder Bremen at Schwarzwald-Stadion this Saturday. Despite the huge gap in the league table, I am expecting a close game. Let’s analyze further.
SC Freiburg have gathered 37 points in 26 rounds by winning 10 times, drawing 7 times, and losing 9 times. They are trailing the 6th placed Wolfsburg by 2 points to steal the last Europa League spot. It’s strange to see them still fighting for the top spots after seeing them win only three times in their last 14 Bundesliga appearances. They should be thankful for their dream-like start to the season. However, if they cannot figure out how they can return to their earlier form, they will be waving goodbyes to Europa League when it’s all said and done. Having said so, they had a solid game against Leipzig last week in a match-up where they were clearly the underdogs. They managed to take the lead in the 34th minute but they left the pitch with a 1-1 draw, which surely kept them in the hunt for the top 6.
As to the visitors, I am having a hard time finding any positive statistics. This season went downhill for Werder Bremen from the start. They are at the second-to-last position in the league table with only 18 points in 25 rounds. Having won only 4 times, drawn 6 times, and lost 15 times, they are seriously in danger of relegating. They are trailing the 16th placed Dusseldorf by 5 points and they need any points they can get. Having lost 1-4 to Leverkusen at home, they are now winless in the last 7 Bundesliga games. Their away record seems to be better than their home record but it’s certainly not enough to survive in this prestigious league for another year. Every fixture they have left will be crucial for the remainder of the season; that is why I believe that they can upset a few teams.
Having said so, I do not believe that Freiburg are the team Werder Bremen can upset. Although head to record records show that Bremen have been superior to Freiburg lately (Bremen with 3 wins, Freiburg with only 1 win in the last 6), Freiburg are the favorites this time. It will be a close match but I will go with Freiburg -0.25 AH. Good luck! If you also want to reserve your seat amongst the winners, register for the best betting software.
