Our match prediction:
As expected, Werder Bremen suffered a 4-1 loss to Borussia M’gladbach at the weekend. Die Werderaner experienced all sorts of problems in Saturday’s football match and, no doubt, situation is alarming in Viktor Skripnik’s team ahead of the visit of Mainz. Werder Bremen are desperate to grab something from Wednesday’s football match and they are likely to go all guns blazing at their rivals. Mainz recorded their first win of the season at the weekend, with the team beating Augsburg on the road and they will be looking to build on the performance when they square off against Werder Bremen at Weserstadion. The Reds failed to beat die Werderaner in previous four meetings between the two teams in Bundesliga, but they are certainly capable of putting an end to the negative trend. Werder have been totally out of form of late and we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s match.
Highligted Player (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.
