Werder Bremen vs FC Koln - Match Preview
⚽ 20 May 2023 - 13:30 GMT +0
As far as poor ends to the season go, Werder Bremen’s run of just one win from ten Bundesliga outings (D2, L7) is right up there. Fortunately for Bremen, their points cushion to the drop zone is enough that they’re in no real danger of facing the drop, but they can mathematically secure their Bundesliga status for next season with a victory here, something that certainly isn’t guaranteed on the back of four successive home league defeats.
It’s little surprise to see Bremen struggling for form of late when you consider they’ve conceded at least twice in ten successive Bundesliga outings, an incredible feat that they’ll undoubtedly need to address ahead of next season. They probably won’t be glad to see Cologne coming to town then as they search for a defensive remedy, especially after losing the reverse fixture 7-1!
For Cologne, this game takes on a ‘dead rubber’ feel, with nothing on the line for them aside from an outside shot at finishing in the top half. Four points adrift of ninth ahead of the round with just two games remaining, Cologne certainly have a mountain to climb if they’re to achieve that feat and secure back-to-back finishes in the Bundesliga’s top nine after their seventh-place finish last season.
An impressive run across their last seven league outings (W4, D2, L1) has helped Cologne cement their position in mid-table, but with only one of those games witnessing a clean sheet, boss Steffen Baumgart is left with a clear area of improvement. Such a leaky defence hasn’t really bothered Cologne on the road, with their current run of three successive away league wins their longest streak in the top-flight since 1996!
📋 Players to watch: Bremen will likely look to Marvin Ducksch to get them going as he’s scored his side’s first goal in his last four scoring appearances. Cologne will perhaps lean on Davie Selke’s contributions, as he’s netted three of their last four away league goals.
⚡ Hot stat: Eight of Bremen’s last ten home league games have seen exactly three total goals scored.
