Freiburg vs Werder Bremen Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Freiburg host a free falling Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Freiburg have won two of their last three matches at Schwarzwald-Stadion and have a great chance to take all three points.
Freiburg’s strong start to the season has turned into inconsistency but they still have a chance at Europa League qualification. They lost 1-0 at Borussia Dortmund but bounced back with a 3-1 home win against Union Berlin.
Their first match after the break was a tough 1-1 draw at Leipzig. Manuel Gulde opened the scoring but they were largely outplayed and fortunate to earn a point.
Freiburg return to the Schwarzwald-Stadion where they have won two of their last three Bundesliga matches and five of their last eight.
Defender Lukas Kübler remains injured but midfielders Amir Abrashi and Chang-Hoon Kwon returned on the bench in Leipzig.
Midfielder Janik Haberer is a chance to start and forward Lucas Höler could replace Roland Sallai in the starting side.
Werder Bremen Form
Werder Bremen’s season is going from bad to worse. They were on a terrible run of form before the break which continued last week.
Florian Kohfeldt’s side lost 2-0 at home against Union Berlin, 3-0 at Leipzig and 2-0 at home against Borussia Dortmund. They were knocked out of the German Cup after a 2-0 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt.
Werder Bremen’s last match before the break was a 2-2 draw at Hertha Berlin where they were 2-0 up after six minutes. Their last match was a 4-1 home defeat against Bayer Leverkusen.
Theodor Gebre Selassie equalised in the 30th minute but their defending continues to be horrendous, especially crosses into the box. Werder Bremen have conceded 2+ goals in their last nine matches in all competitions.

Freiburg should be confident after getting a point at Leipzig. They recently beat Hoffenheim and Union Berlin at home who have been better than Werder Bremen this season.
Werder Bremen’s defence has been a massive problem this season. They looked amateurish against Bayer Leverkusen and it’s difficult to see how they can turn it around with Kohfeldt in charge.
"It's a reflection of how the season has gone so far; we were too careless in the crucial moments. We have too many communication problems at the back, which we urgently need to address." #werderpic.twitter.com/1i3RtjZaYM
