Freiburg will be hoping to bounce back here after a 4-0 Bundesliga 1 defeat in their last game at the hands of Borussia Dortmund.
In that game, Freiburg had 34% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. At the other end, Borussia Dortmund had 16 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. Erling Håland (31', 66'), Emre Can (47') and Felix Passlack (92') scored for Borussia Dortmund.
It has been all too rare in recent times where Freiburg have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Freiburg have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals in the process. That sort of pattern might not be carried forward into this match, of course.
Their previous form shows that Freiburg:
- haven’t won against Werder Bremen in their last 4 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches at home.
Werder Bremen head into the match following a 1-0 Bundesliga 1 win with the downing of Arminia Bielefeld in their last fixture.

Florian Kohfeldt’s Werder Bremen have slotted home a total of 9 times throughout their most recent six matches. The total of goals that have been scored against them during those same matches adds up to 7.
Heading into this contest, Werder Bremen are undefeated by Freiburg when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Freiburg
Mark Flekken (Elbow Injury) and Janik Haberer (Ankle Injury) won’t be available for Freiburg manager Christian Streich.
Team News: Werder Bremen
Bremen manager Florian Kohfeldt has some current player fitness concerns. Milot Rashica (Knee Problems), Ömer Toprak (Muscle Injury) and Kevin Möhwald (Fitness) will miss out on this game.
Our thinking is that Werder Bremen are likely to score a goal against this Freiburg team, but that is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our tip is for a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Freiburg after the 90. Expecting it to be very competitive.
