Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday 21st January, 2017
Kick-off: 14:30/15:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion, Bremen.
A resurgent Werder Bremen will host the stuttering Borussia Dortmund in a game that could well see the favorites drop more points, on Saturday at the Weser-Stadion in Northern Germany.
After the gap of around a month, the Bundesliga will come back in action with Bayern Munich’s trip to SC Freiburg, but the game at Weser-Stadion could well witness something unexpected, if not just the dropping of points by BVB. Alexander Nouri’s men have undergone a bit of a transformation following the sacking of Viktor Skrypnyk and things haven’t gone too well for Thomas Tuchel’s Dortmund.
The men in yellow are currently sixth in the league, as many as 12 points behind arch-rivals and table topping Bayern Munich. Bremen though, are still near the dreaded zone, despite being on a decent run recently.
Meetings between the two sides had seen Dortmund win both. As Tuchel’s men had ran out convincing 3-1 winners in Bremen and won the home game by a 3-2 scoreline.

Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
The h2h stats are all pointing towards a Dortmund win here, but their away credentials this season raise some question marks. They have won just once in their last 6 Bundesliga away games, lost 2 and drawn 3. Bremen are a side under no pressure to deliver a result here. Moreover, they are will be confident after overseeing an unbeaten month in December.
An upset is on the cards here, we recommend to back the home side on a double chance to win or draw here. As seen in previous meetings between the two sides, both teams could score and over 2.5 goals is very much a possibility.
