Our Prediction:

Werder Bremen will win

Werder Bremen – Augsburg Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 09:30

Adopting an attack-minded approach often leaves teams open to attack and thats exactly the case at Weser Stadium. Bremen have conceded at least once in each of their last six, while theyve conceded a rather meaty average of 1.8 goals per home game this season, so despite their attacking power, there is indeed hope for the visitors. If theres a weakness that Bremen have at present, then its that they struggle to keep teams at bay.

But since then its been a struggle for the Icelandic international who has gone goalless in the past nine Bundesliga outings. Alfred Finnbogason shot out of the gates this season when he scored four goals in his opening three matches. If the Bavarian club is to get back on track, they need his scoring output. Since Finnbogasons hat-trick on Matchday 3, Augsburg have won three and lost three.

Fin Bartels will be brought back into the starting XI after being ineligible to play in the cup due to suspension. Max Kruse made his return from injury in the cup win against Hoffenheim off the bench. Expect Bremen to return to the 3-5-2 formation. He will come off the bench once again as he seeks to improve his fitness.

Two sides at opposite ends of the spectrum face off in the Bundesliga this weekend as Werder Bremen host Augsburg

Thanks to a splendid 3-0 win over Mainz Augsburg managed to put an end to their nine-game winless run in Bundesliga, with the team finally giving fans something to cheer about. A man to watch in the home team will be former Wolfsburg man Max Kruse. Die Werderaner head into the match following back-to-back draws against the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt and Nurnberg and they surely want to get back on course. As previously mentioned, Werder Bremen have turned their Weserstadion into a real fortress and considering that Augsburg failed to score in three of their four league fixtures, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Bremen. The Bavarians regained a much-needed confidence, but they cant afford any complacency in Sundays football game against Werder Bremen, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home.

They have failed to win 15 of their last 34 matches in Bundesliga.In their last match they lost against Dortmund. Werder Bremen is ranked on the 8th place in the standings with 45 points, 61 goals scored and 64 goals received in the last 34 leagueevents. Werder Bremen lost 3 of their last 5 matches before this game with Augsburg.The attacking skills of Werder Bremen are moderate, they won 2events from the last 5 played.

Werders performances are undisputedly better than their results and seeing that Augsburg are seen as one of the main candidates for relegation, we are tempted to put our money on Florian Kohfeldts troops. Augsburg, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund in their first away game of the season and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Werder Bremens party at Weserstadion. Augsburg chiefs were not too active in the summer transfer window and it is no surprise they have been struggling at the start of the season.

Instead, the bet that stands out is Bremen to Win & Both Teams to Score. The hosts do have a habit of slipping up defensively at home, but their recent attacking efforts suggest that they should have more than enough in the locker to outscore an Augsburg side whove given more away than theyve created when playing away from home this season. In the betting, Bremen are rightly favourites, though they look fractionally too short to be supporting in the Win/Draw/Win market.

Werder Bremen vs Augsburg Match Preview

Theyve scored plenty of goals and have almost always created chances. Their average of 1.79 expected goals for at Weser Stadium tells us that teams generally find it hard to prevent Die Werderaner from creating, as do their last three expected goals-for figures of 2.46, 2.54 and 2.9. In fact, when playing on their own patch, Bremen have looked like a very useful attacking side this season.
