Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach take on Werder Bremen at their Stadion im Borussia-Park in the Bundesliga round 17. Die Fohlen aim to climb to the Europa League berth, with the team eyeing their fourth home win of the season. Borussia M’gladbach did well to beat Bayern Munchen in their last home game in the Bundesliga, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Werder Bremen. Marcus Thuram is banned for the hosts, while both Lazaro and Reitz are sidelined with injuries.
Die Werderaner, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Augsburg, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Borussia M’gladbach, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The likes of Erras, Fullkrug, and Gross remain in the recovery room, while Sweden international Augustinsson is rated doubtful for the game.
Highlighted Player (Christoph Kramer):
Christoph Kramer is a German midfielder born in Solingen on 19 February 1991, and he is most famous for helping Germany lift the 2014 World Cup trophy. The defensive midfielder came to prominence after signing for Bayer Leverkusen, but it was the loan spells with VFL Bochum and Borussia M’gladbach that seriously aided his development.
Kramer received a surprise call up to Joachim Low’s World Cup squad, and he made a total of three appearances in Brazil, even starting the final against Argentina. The midfielder, however, suffered a concussion just after the half hour mark and he later confessed that he couldn’t remember anything from the most important game in his career.
Kramer remained a member of the Germany national team, making three appearances in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there is plenty of time for him to represent the country at another major tournament, playing a more important role than the one he had at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
