Werder Bremen – Dusseldorf SOCCER PICKS
Werder Bremen and Fortuna Düsseldorf meet at Weserstadion, in a match for the 14th round of the Bundesliga. There is no recent record of direct confrontations between these two teams, who have not played any matches in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 13-04-2013, in a match that ended with the final score: Fortuna Düsseldorf (2-2) Werder Bremen. The condition home / away deserves particular attention, because despite this being a match between 8th and 18th of the league table, it is actually a match between the 12th ranked in home games and the 16th as a visitor.
After 5 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses, the home team is currently in the 8 th position of the league, with 18 points won. In the last match, they have lost at home against Bayern München by (1-2), after in the previous match they have tied (1-1) an away match against Freiburg. This is a team that usually gets more positive results in away matches than at home, since they have won 10 points out of 8 and 8 at their stadium, with 10 goals scored and 8 conceded in away matches, against 11 goals scored and 14 conceded at home. For the league, Werder Bremen won 8 points out of 21 possible points, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in the last 7 home matches. The team has conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, but its attack has scored regularly, as it has always scored at least one goal in the last 10 matches for this competition. In 13 games in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 7 times and never got the comeback.
Werder Bremen continues to campaign far below what was expected in the Bundesliga, does not win 5 games, lost 4 and drew 1, and now goes in search of a recovery to go back up in the qualifying table. The team has suffered a lot with the inefficiency of their defense, which is the sixth weakest in the national championship, with 22 goals suffered, 14 of them only in the last five rounds, so they need to rediscover their defensive strength with urgency, but the attack has played well, creating several scoring opportunities, putting pressure on opponents, but due to this style of play, it ends up leaving many spaces in its defense. Werder Bremen, playing at home, as in the game on Friday, has acted badly and played very open games, so much that 4 of their last 5 games had at least 3 goals in the final score and in those 4 games there were goals from both teams. For the game against Fortuna Düsseldorf, coach Kohfeldt will not be able to count on Moisander, sent off on the last day.
After 2 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses, the away team is currently in the 18 th position, with 9 points won. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Mainz 05, by (0-1), after in the previous match they have tied tied in an away match against Bayern München, by (3-3). This is a stronger team in their stadium, where they have won 6 points, against only 3 in their away matches. For the league, Fortuna Düsseldorf won 3 points out of 18 possible points, after 3 draws and 3 losses in the last 6 matches as a visitor.
For this competition, they have not won any of the last 6 away matches. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so it was not very strong defensively. In 13 games in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 8 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Fortuna Düsseldorf is doing a disastrous campaign in the Bundesliga, going through a terrible phase, with only 1 win in the last 10 games, and going in search of a recovery to try to get out of the last position. The team presents serious problems, both in the offensive and in the defensive sector, as it scored 13 goals, being the third worst attack of the competition, and suffered 29 goals, having the second worst defense, being a team with few scoring opportunities It manages to create, ends badly and leaves many spaces in its defense. In the away matches, the Fortuna Düsseldorf is one of the 3 teams that have not yet won in the championship, has the worst attack and the third worst defense, evidencing the enormous difficulty of acting away from their domains, where it is even more inefficient than in his stadium, where he has been playing very badly. For the game against Werder Bremen, coach Funkel goes to the field with the same starting eleven of the last day.
