Werder Bremen have a major tie against Borussia Dortmund in order to protect their slender hopes of finishing in the European qualification places. Bremen have fallen into ninth place in the league table with five points separating them from the European qualification spots. Even if Bremen manage a 100% record in the remaining three league encounters, the team needs rivals like Leverkusen and Hoffenheim to drop points. Borussia Dortmund failed to grasp a golden opportunity to go back to the top and the team remains two points behind Bayern Munich with three games left.

Correct Score odds
Marco Reus has been one of Dortmund’s top creative assets in recent weeks and his suspension will be a major blow for the visitors. Bremen have been outstanding going forward this season and they have failed to score only once in 2019. Our correct score prediction would pick a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bremen are unlikely to adopt a defensive stance in order to end a sequence of three successive defeats, but Dortmund may not have the same kind of attacking impetus in this match. The recent meetings between these two teams at the Weserstadion have been tight encounters. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jadon Sancho failed to score against Schalke last weekend but he did get on the end of an assist. He has now come up with 11 goals and 14 assists in 31 Bundesliga matches. The impressive 19-year-old’s importance in this match will grow due to the absence of Marco Reus. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jadon Sancho.
