Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Weserstadion will host Friday’s football game between Werder Bremen and Koln. Die Werderaner are undefeated in the previous five league fixtures, and they head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. Agu is rated doubtful for the Koln game, while the likes of Erras, Fullkrug, Kauper, Selke, and Augustinsson are all likely to miss the match with injury.
Fit-again winger Milot Rashica is pushing for a start. The Billy Goats, on the other hand, failed to make life difficult for Lewandowski-less Bayern Munchen at the weekend. Koln are still after their first win of the season, but given their shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the in-form hosts. As for the visiting team, Voloder is a major doubt (coronavirus), while Hector and Voloder remain in the recovery room. In their last meeting in the Bundesliga Werder Bremen crushed Koln 6-1.
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.
