  • Competition: Bundesliga

  • Kickoff: 19:30 UTC
  • Venue: Weserstadion

The breakout candidates of the Bundesliga this year, third-placed Union Berlin will travel to tenth-placed Werder Bremen on Wednesday. Bremen have won just six times, with only three of these wins coming at the Weserstadion this season. They will be hosting a Union Berlin side which sits ahead of the likes of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, with just four losses from 16 game weeks. The game plan for the flying visitors has been simple - defend and counter for narrow goals, on the way. to three points. It has worked as they remain one of the worst attacking sides in the competition but still are the third-best overall. Union Berlin will have to overcome their three-win record though away from home, not to mention their negative goal difference when not playing in Berlin.

Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin Betting Pick #1: BTTS

Union Berlin have had great success playing against Bremen in the past. The last four meetings have ended in a Union Berlin win. But, the visitors' away form has been really concerning this year, with more goals conceded (14) than scored (10) away from home. We believe that even if the away side has a great chance of getting a win in this game eventually, they will not walk away unscathed and concede at least one goal on Wednesday. Werder Bremen too are obvious to concede, not having kept a clean sheet against Union in most of the last meetings.

Pick #2: Away/Over 2.5

We are pretty sure that Union Berlin will not let this opportunity slip by, of winning all three points as there as much as four opponents below them who could move past them on the points table if the visitors drop points. They have a fantastic record of four wins from four games against Bremen too, off late. Considering this and the fact that a third minimum goal would be necessary after both sides score, we believe that this will be a Union Berlin win with over 2.5 goals being scored.

Werder Bremen Team News

Werder Bremen are really thin in the centre of the park, with two central midfielders out from this tie due to injuries. 22-year-old Romano Schmid who is an attack-minded central midfielder will not return to the first team at least till the beginning of February as he recovers from a knee injury suffered in early January. His fellow midfield compatriot, albeit a defensive one, Felix Agu will be unavailable too with a Tendon injury he suffered long back in November. The 23-year-old has been given a return date of mid-February as of yet.

Players to watch: Niclas Fullkrug (11 goals and 2 assists), Marvin Duksch (29 chances created this season), Lee Buchanan (2.9 interceptions per 90 mins)

Union Berlin Team News

Veteran striker Sven Michel is back in training after picking up a knock lately, but the 32-year-old will surely not make it to the first team due to match sharpness issues. The good news for the third-placed Bundesliga side's fans is that the Hungarian midfielder Andras Schafer has recovered from his broken foot and is back in training as we speak. Schafer might see some action, in the second half if he is brought on by the coach Urs Fischer in the latter half. Versatile midfielder Morten Thorsby will be definitely out from this tie, not even making it to the reserves, as his abdominal injury is severe enough to keep him out till February.

Players to watch: Sheraldo Becker (7 goals and 3 assists), Niko Giesselmann (18 chances created this season), Rani Khedira (1.4 interceptions per 90 mins)
