Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Weserstadion will host the match between Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign. Die Werderaner aim to secure yet another top flight survival, while Roger Schmidt’s men are eyeing a place in the Champions League. Bayer Leverkusen impressed in a 2-0 win over star-studded Borussia Dortmund in their last league fixture and seeing that Werder Bremen have been struggling at the back this term, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game. Javier Hernandez Chicharito found the net in the 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund and he will be one of the men to watch in the home team. In previous two meetings (all competitions) Werder Bremen emerged triumphant and, no doubt, Roger Schmidt’s charges are hungry for revenge. Taking everything into account, away win appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Theodor Gebre Selassie):
Born to Ethiopian father and Czech mother, Theodor Gebre Selassie was the first ever player of African descent to represent the Czech Republic national team when he was handed his debut back in 2011. The right-sided defender has since done well to nail down a regular starting berth and went on to play at the Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 finals. Gebre Selassie represented the likes of Vysocina Jihlava, Velke Mezirici, Slavia Prague and Slovan Liberec, before the solid showing at the 2012 European Championship helped him earn a move to Werder Bremen. The right back has performed well at the Weserstadion, but he eventually lost his place in the Czech Republic starting XI, making just three appearances during the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. However, having amassed over 30 appearances for the national team with a proud history, he can be quite satisfied with how his international career has panned out so far, while there is still time to further raise his stock.
