Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Werder Bremen can continue their impressive Bundesliga home form when they host Stuttgart at the Weserstadion. I am tipping the hosts at 2.40 in the -1 handicap market and Milot Rashica to continue his fine form in the first and anytime goalscorer markets.
SV Werder Bremen Form & Team News
The Green-Whites remain unbeaten in 2019 after a last gasp 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin on Saturday. 40-year-old Claudio Pizarro stepped up to take a free kick in the 96th minute and powered it under the wall to snatch a point.
The result sees Werder Bremen stay in contention for a UEFA Europa League position despite being in 10th position. Florian Kohfeldt’s side are strong at the Weserstadion and recorded an easy 4-0 home win against Augsburg on Matchday 21.
Milot Rashica scored twice in that match and had opportunities in Berlin before being withdrawn for Joshua Sargent. Yuya Osako and Martin Harnik are still injured with Kohfeldt unlikely to make many changes against Stuttgart.
Werder Bremen are paying 1.57 to beat Stuttgart which is fine for accumulators. I am being a little more ambitious and selecting the hosts in the -1 handicap market at 2.40.
VfB Stuttgart Form & Team News
Stuttgart fell to another Bundesliga defeat after being beaten 3-1 at home by RB Leipzig. Steven Zuber made it 1-1 from the penalty spot but the Swabians couldn’t hold on and remain in the relegation play-off spot.
Manager Markus Weinzierl tried a new formation against Leipzig and who knows what he will attempt in Bremen. Nicólas González is suspended with Timo Baumgartl and Dennis Aogo injured but 18-year-old central defender Ozan Kabak has shown early promise for his new club.
Confidence is low in Stuttgart and their road record is dire with eight defeats in their last nine away matches in the Bundesliga. Weinzierl’s side have failed to score in four of their last five on the road and have conceded 14 goals in that run.
The visitors are paying 6.00 to record their second away win of the season, 4.50 to take a point which would be their second away draw in 12 attempts.
Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart Head-to-Head
There is nothing separating Werder Bremen and Stuttgart but Friday’s hosts have won their last three matches against the Swabians. Bremen won this fixture 1-0 last season with Max Kruse scoring the winner.
Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart Match Up
Werder Bremen have improved in 2019 with Kohfeldt’s decision to start Milot Rashica up front paying dividends. The 22-year-old has scored four goals in his last five matches and his speed should trouble Stuttgart’s defence.
Markus Weinzierl has few options to change things around and his side look completely demoralised, especially away from home. Daniel Didavi and Anastasiois Donis could start here in an attempt to make something happen.
Werder Bremen vs Stuttgart Key Statistics
- Werder Bremen are unbeaten in 20 of their last 23 home matches (Bundesliga).
- Werder Bremen have won their last 3 home matches against Stuttgart (Bundesliga).
- Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica has scored 4 goals in his last 5 matches (all competitions).
- Stuttgart have lost 8 of their last 9 away matches (Bundesliga).
- Stuttgart have conceded 2+ goals in their last 7 Bundesliga matches.
Werder Bremen should be too strong at home against a Stuttgart side devoid of confidence. The hosts are tipped in the -1 handicap market at 2.40 and Milot Rashica can get it done in the first and anytime goalscorer markets.
