BREMEN TARGET FIRST WIN IN THREE
Werder Bremen are eyeing a first victory in three German Bundesliga games ahead of the visit of Borussia Moenchengladbach this weekend. Newly promoted club Werder Bremen take on Gladbach at home looking to end a run of two league games without a win. They have lost one and draw one in their last two German Bundesliga games thus dropping into the bottom half as far as the league table is concerned.
Werder Bremen bounced back from the home defeat at the hands of Augsburg with the impressive 1-1 draw at the home of Champions League team Bayer Leverkusen. Swiss defender Milos Veljkovic scored the equaliser for Bremen after German midfielder KeremDemirbay had given Leverkusen the lead in the second half. The opener arrived on 57 minutes and it lasted for almost half of an hour before Veljkovic levelled proceedings for the home team.
After seven games in the German Bundesliga this season, Werder Bremen have nine points. The newly promoted Bundesliga giants have a record of two wins, three draws and two defeats. They are three points off opponents Borussia Moenchengladbach in sixth spot which will guarantee a place in the UEFA Europa Conference League. Gladbach have won three, drawn three and lost just one of their opening seven games in the German Bundesliga this season.
Significantly, Werder Bremen are four points ahead of VfB Stuttgart who are in the relegation playoff spot. Stuttgart are third from bottom on the current German Bundesliga log.
