DORTMUND – WERDER
Borussia Dortmund hosts Werder Bremen in a game from the last 34th round of the German Bundesliga. Here are our soccer predictions for today about this match.
This game is very important for the home team. Dortmund need to win the match at any cost, if they want to keep the 3rd place in the standings and gain a direct qualification for the Champions League. Right now Dortmund have the same amount of points as Hoffenheim, so if they lose points against Werder, they could lose this position.
Werder on the other hand are currently 8th in the standings. They are on three points behind the 6th Freiburg and the Europa League zone, so they still have a theoretical chance to reach this position and play in Europe. But if they want this chance to survive, they need to take the win at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.
If we talk about current form, things are not looking good for Werder. After a period of excellent results, the team from Bremen lost its last two games against Koln and Hoffenheim. They recieved 9 goals in these two matches, which is not a good stat at all.
As for Dortmund, they are unbeaten in their last five games in the Bundesliga. In the last round they lost two points though, being unable to win its visit to Augsburg.
Nuri Sahin is ready to come back for the home team, but players as Julian Weigl, Andre Schürrle, Jacob Larsen and Mario Gotze remain sidelined with injuries.
Werder will be without the suspended Robert Bauer, while Luca Caldirola, Eric Oelschlägel and Clemens Fritz are sidelined with injuries. Justin Eilers, Ousman Manneh and Johannes Eggestein are all doubtful, but the veteran striker Claudio Pizarro is ready to come back.
In soccer predictions for today we can conclude that this is important game for both teams, so we should expect a tough battle at the Signal Iduna Park. Good luck!
