Werder has momentum behind them, and is close to moving away from the bottom two spots in the league after a long time. On the other side, if Eintracht manages to stay unbeaten in this event, the Eagles would be in an excellent position. This game is very important for either of the teams, because it could mean a lot in the end.
Werder (+170) plays very well since the restart of the league. In three matches, they had seven points, without a single goal allowed, which is a tremendous success for a team who was among the worst teams in the league and allowed more than two goals per game until now.
Five of their last seven games ended with under 2.5 goals, and that is something you need to remember once making a decision about the final bet regarding this match. As we said the team from Bremen didn’t have the same approach in the first part of the season, once they played open and tried to wins games with scoring one goal more than the rivals.
Werder hasn’t won at home in a long time, and in the previous four games, they couldn’t score in three. The pressure on them is great.
Eintracht Frankfurt (+145) finally caught some breath with winning on the road in Wolfsburg. A 1-2 win and those three points were remarkably important for the Eagles, who are below every expectation ever since the campaign began.
Unlike their next opponents, the crew from Frankfurt plays open and efficient football. All the latest six games ended with over 2.5 goals, and just one in the previous five didn’t conclude with both teams to score.
In most cases, this approach came back at them like a boomerang, but in Wolfsburg, it wasn’t like that.
Nuri Sahin, Niclas Fullkrug, Omer Toprak, Kevin Mohwald are all injured and won’t appear on Wednesday. Milot Rashica is questionable, and on the other side, Claudio Pizarro is coming back. His muscle injury is healed.
Lucas Torro Marset from Frankfurt is suspended after a red card. Goncalo Paciencia is having some trouble with muscle, and he won’t play.
Head to Head Matches
The Eagles were better in the first part of the season, beating Werder 2-0. It was an even match, but the hosts had more luck and were focused better in some moments.
That was the only match in the last eight which didn’t end with over 2.5 goals and with both teams to score.
Werder has a philosophy of play, which suggests using hard defense to reach the results. For sure, that will be the case in this event as well. The River Islanders, as the fans call them, would close all the paths to their goal, waiting for their chance to strike from the counter-attack.
It might be risky, but our first suggestion is a draw at the halftime; furthermore, we would recommend a goalless draw for those who like risky bets, but for those who aren’t in that mood, a plain draw should be fine. Moneyline here is +125.
