Schalke vs Werder Bremen

David Wagner’s side suffered yet another defeat on the Bundesliga return last time out. After taking the lead, they conceded two late goals to Dusseldorf to make it five defeats from six. They are facing looking to leap Dusseldorf in Werder Bremen. Bremen have done okay to get four points from a possible six, including halting Borussia Monchengladbach to a goalless draw. The visitors need the result just as bad, but for more significant reasons. The hosts simply have not been scoring enough, and I cannot see them winning this one either.”

Can Schalke end their rotten form?

It has been a devastating return to Bundesliga action for Schalke. David Wagner’s side continue to carry over their abysmal form before the enforced break. They are now 10 league games without a win, and have picked up just one point from a possible 18. Had it not been for their impressive early season form, a relegation battle would have been on their hands.

They found the back of the net in the last match, a rarity these days. Weston McKennie headed home from a set-piece, but again they could not hold on to a result. That goal was just their fifth Bundesliga goal since the start of 2020. S04 open the scoring at home often, however, and have done so in 71% of their home league games this season.

Bremen to earn more invaluable points?

Two positive results back-to-back has given Werder Bremen the lifeline they desperately needed. The Bundesliga mainstays have never seen relegation fears become this real until this season as they sit in 17th. Bremen secured a huge 1-0 away win at Freiburg before holding the free-scoring Borussia Monchengladbach at home 0-0 last time out.

They will be optimistic about another positive result in this one too. With the worst home record in the league, SVW travel far better away from home. They have a 1.14 away PPG compared to a measly 0.46 home PPG. Not only that, they have defeated Schalke in their last three visits to Veltins Arena. A sound record which they need to take advantage of.
