Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Mainz will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt when they take on Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon. Die Nullfunfer are sitting in the relegation zone with only 11 points on their account and it has to be noted that they failed to take a shot on target in a 1-0 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. Midfielder Jae-Sung Lee is on international duty with Korea Republic, while all Brajan Gruda, Edimilson Fernandes, and Nelson Weiper should miss out with injuries.
Die Werderaner, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Bayern Munich and Freiburg. Werder Bremen want to keep their Conference League hopes alive, but seeing that the relegation-threatened hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Jan Siewert’s troops. Former Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is on international duty, while all Mitchell Weiser, Milos Veljkovic, Amos Pieper, and Leon Opitz should miss out with injuries.
