Kick-Off Time : 17: 30 PM.
Date: Saturday, September 28, 2019.
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Borussia Dortmund will welcome Werder Bremen to Signal Iduna Park on Saturday for another clash in the Matchday 6 in the German Bundesliga. The hosts are currently third on the log with 10 points while Werder Bremen are occupying the 10th position with 6 points earned so far.
The black and yellow outfit side has been scoring goals for fun at the start of the new Bundesliga season, and they are looking forward to their fourth consecutive win at home in the German top flight.
Borussia Dortmund has a considerable opportunity to record a big win at home against a Bremen side. The Bundesliga challengers have a devastating attack which can hurt their opponent- who are facing some injury crisis.
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend, Dortmund will be looking to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga when they host Bremen.
The result followed a 0-0 draw at home against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League that they should have won after Marco Reus penalty was saved and Lucien Favre’s men had other opportunities which they failed to convert to take all three points against the La Liiga champions.
Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen Form/ Team News
Dortmund is close to having full strength, the only first-team players doubtful are mostly defenders Nico Schulz and Mat Hummels.
Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus, Paco Alcacer and Thorgan Hazard are all available to continue in an attack which could be too much to handle for an injury-ravaged Bremen side.
Werder Bremen on the other hand, have started this season with injuries to their defence with players like Niklas Moisander, Ömer Toprak, Milos Veljkovic, Sebastian Langkamp, and Ludwig Augustinsson together with midfielder Kevin Mòhwald and attackers Fin Bartels, Niclas Fülkrug, and Yuya Osako. After losing their influential player Max Cruise to Fenerbache in the summer, it gets worse with Milot Rashika injured, and Nuri Sahin suspended in their 3-0 home defeat to Leipzig.
Dortmund 3- 1 Werder Bremen
Dortmund are placed at 1.28 to beat Werder Bremen, while Bremen were given 10.00 odds.
