Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Weserstadion will host Saturday’s football game between Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg, the two teams who are standing on the opposite sides of the hill at the moment. Die Werderaner are running down a blind alley, and given their four-match losing run in Bundesliga, home win should not be considered. Despite failing to find the net in a 2-1 loss to Union Berling, Nicklas Fullkrug will be the man to watch in the home team, while both Agu and Schmid are sidelined with injuries.
Meanwhile, the Wolves are on a six-game winning run in the national championship, and seeing that they scored 11 goals in total in back-to-back wins over Freiburg (6-0) and Hertha (5-0), we believe that there is a big value in betting on Niko Kovac’s men. Paulo Otavio is pushing for a start after serving his one-game ban in the midweek triumph, while there are no fresh injury worries in the away side.
Highlighted Player (Oliver Burke):
A product of the Nottingham Forest football academy, Oliver Burke made his domestic debut in 2014, when he was only 17 years of age. Born in Kirkcaldy, Oliver Burke is the captain of Scotland Under-21 side who’s faced plenty of criticism ever since leaving the Championship side.
Having left Forest for Red Bull Leipzig in 2016 in a £13 million deal Oliver Burke became the most expensive Scottish player in history, whereas his hit the record book all over again the very next year when West Bromwich Albion saved him from a German misery in a £15 million deal. Burke was regularly praised for his physical ability during his time in the Bundesliga, but Leipzig coaching staff had plenty of tactical questions hanging over his head.
A precocious talent who had only scraped the surface of his own potential, Burke is looking to get his career back on track. Despite being only 21 years of age, Burke already has 5 senior appearances for Scotland under his belt.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsburg):
Wolfsburg are a German football club founded in the aftermath of the World War II (1945). Die Wolfe (The Wolves) wear green and white shirts and they play their home games at Volkswagen Arena. The capacity of the stadium is 30,000 and it was opened on 13 December, 2002.
It is well known that German car manufacturer Volkswagen are the club’s main sponsors. Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga trophy in 2009 and the likes of Edin Dzeko, Grafite and Zvjezdan Misimovic were part of the club’s golden generation.
You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football.
