Weserstadion, Bremen, Germany.
Tuesday 26th May.
Kick-off: 20:30 (CEST).
Relegation battlers Werder Bremen host Borussia Mönchengladbach — a team at the other end of the table with Champions League aspirations.
A vital victory
Werder Bremen got a much-needed win in their previous match as they fight against relegation. They won 0-1 away to Freiburg with a Leonardo Bittencourt goal. Will that goal be the start of a revival? Werder Bremen are at 4.40 to make it two wins in a row. They are three points behind the relegation playoff place and six points from complete safety.
Borussia Mönchengladbach were effectively knocked out of the title race at the weekend. They suffered a 1-3 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen — Bayer overtook them in the table and both sides will now be fighting for a Champions League place in the remaining fixtures. Borussia Mönchengladbach are at 1.74 to bounce back from their tough loss at the weekend.
Werder Bremen haven’t beaten Borussia since 2015 and Borussia ran out comfortable 3-1 winners in the last outing between the two. Patrick Hermann scored two goals in that match, and you can back him at odds of 2.50 to score against Werder Bremen again. The outcome of this match rests on how both sides will respond to the previous matchday. Will Bremen finally kick on and start putting some results together? Can Borussia put their gut-wrenching loss to Bayer Leverkusen behind them? As the H2H and league table shows us, Gladbach have the superior team and will be safe in the knowledge that they can see off Bremen if they play their best.
Werder Bremen: Niclas Füllkrug, Claudio Pizarro, Ömer Toprak, Ludwig Augustinsson, Philipp Bargfrede.
Borussia Mönchengladbach: Denis Zakaria and Fabian Johnson.
Werder Bremen have a win under their belt and could make things tough, but our tip is for Borussia Mönchengladbach to edge this one by one exact goal at odds of 3.57.
