Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 18.05.2020

Bayer Leverkusen’s campaign for Champions League zone this season has been satisfactory. They are still on the fifth of the table with forty seven points. However, their marvellous run in the last ten games before the league pause should keep their confidence high. They have been unbeaten since early February with nine victories. Next Tuesday, they will be facing a supposedly easy target, Werder Bremen on an away fixture. Unlike Kai Havertz and Co, the home side’s campaign is in danger of relegation as they are stuck on the seventeenth of the standings.

Both teams latest news

Bremen’s form has been on miserable with winless results in the last five games. This season’s suspension due to covid-19 should be a good one for Florian Kohfeldt to review his team’s poor run and push a restart button with more improved confidence to save his own future and the team.

Meanwhile, Leverkusen is likely to continue their positive trend as the squad is fresh as new with their optimism in the air. If they are in good shape till the end of the season, including in Europa League, then there is a chance they might eventually win a European title and return to UCL next season.

Possible tactics

Florian Kohfeldt is in favour of 4-3-1-2 formation in their last game while visiting Hertha Berlin. This could be a good option considering their less impressive squad. Milos Rashica and Yuya Osako might be on the line up again as the main frontmen supported by the young American attacking midfielder Joshua Sergant. The only name on the injury table is the experienced forward Niklas Fullkrug.

Their counterpart seems to have found the ideal formation under 3-4-2-1 or 3-4-3 formation. Peter Bosz’s idea of transforming the previous 4-2-3-1 to such three-defender-based formation has led to their impressive results before the break. In addition, Kai Havertz seems to become more dangerous in his more attacking role, either as a frontman or as a playmaker. This would ease Kevin Volland or Lucas Alario to focus more on scoring.

Player to watch

In Bremen squad, the current top performer this season are Milos Rashica of Kosovo who has netted seven goals and provided four assists, the former Dortmund and Liverpool, Nuri Sahin, with three assists and the Dutch Davy Klaessen with his four goals and three assists

The visitor’s side mainly counts on Kai Havertz with six goals and five assists, Kevin Volland who has scored nine goals and provided seven assists and the young Frenchman, Moussa Diaby. Some other notable figures of the team are Bender brothers.

Possible result

The battle to survive in Bundesliga starts now for the host. Unfortunately, since the match will be played behind closed doors, playing at home would not be much of an advantage for Davy Klaessen and Co. Leverkusen might pick up a narrow win this time.

Betting Odds

The visitor side is clearly the favourite according to the punters. They are backed to win at 1.67. Kohfeldt’s men are only priced to win at 4.70 while the draw result is slightly lower, which is at 3.90.
