Werder Bremen vs Leipzig Predictions

Leipzig won 4-1 in Bremen three weeks ago with another comfortable victory expected here. I am backing Leipzig in the -1 handicap and the win and over 2.5 goals markets.

  • Werder Bremen have lost their last 7 matches (Bundesliga).
  • Leipzig have won by 2+ goals in their last 4 matches against Werder Bremen (Bundesliga).
  • Leipzig have won 5 of their last 6 away matches (Bundesliga).

Head to Head

Leipzig have a 7-2 advantage against Werder Bremen with 1 draw in 10 matches.

Leipzig have won the last four encounters including 4-1 in Bremen on 10 April.

Werder Bremen Form

Werder Bremen are in terrible form, losing their last seven Bundesliga games. 

Florian Kohfeldt’s side have fallen to one point above the relegation play-off position and four points above the relegation zone.

Werder Bremen beat Jahn Regensburg 1-0 in the German Cup quarter-finals. Since then they have lost four straight in the Bundesliga.

The run started with 4-1 defeats to Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund before a 1-0 loss against Mainz.

Bremen’s last match was a 3-1 loss at Union Berlin where they managed 0.45 expected goals.

Werder Bremen Injuries & Team News

Centre backs Ömer Toprak and Milos Veljkovic are injured.

Leipzig Form

Leipzig have been inconsistent in recent weeks which has seen their Bundesliga title hopes evaporate. They sit seven points behind Bayern Munich with three matches remaining.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side have been unlucky with recent results. They drew 0-0 against Hoffenheim despite having 1.44-0.18 expected goals.

Leipzig then lost 2-1 in Koln despite having 25-5 shots and 2.01-0.59 expected goals. Justin Kluivert hit the woodwork in added time.

Leipzig’s last match was a 2-0 home win against Stuttgart. They played against 10 men for 76 minutes and made it count, strolling to victory with Amadou Haidara and Emil Forsberg on target.

Leipzig Injuries & Team News

The versatile Konrad Laimer is injured with attacking midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai getting close to recovering from injury.

Striker Yussuf Poulsen is injured.

Manager Julian Nagelsmann was confirmed as Bayern Munich’s manager next season.


Leipzig are a far better team and in superior form than Werder Bremen. This should be a comfortable win for Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
