Betting tip 1st German Bundesliga: Borussia Mönchengladbach - SV Werder Bremen

Saturday, 17.09.2016 at 18:30 o’clock (MEZ)

Can Bremen finally score?

In the North of Germany – at SV Werder Bremen to be exact – everybody should be ready for a difficult season again. In the third round of the Bundesliga the Skrpnuk-Eleven has to go to Mönchengladbach and play against strong opponent Borussia. Kick-off is Saturday at 6.30 PM.

Current form Borussia Mönchengladbach

Fans and management of the currently fourth ranked Gladbach are experiencing a real rollercoaster ride. The team is still one of the top teams in the Bundesliga when they play at home. The season opener against Bayer Leverkusen (2:1) and the 6:1 win against Bern in Champions League Play Off are proof of that. Borussia is struggling away though, as could be seen last weekend in Freiburg, when they lost 1:3. Gladbach is still the favorite in the game against Bremen however. André Schubert’s team is far more stable than Werder despite their fluctuating performances. It will be interesting to see how Gladbach deals with the double burden of Bundesliga and Champions League. They messed up their first game in the Champions League and lost 0:4 to Manchester City. Before the losses to Freiburg and ManCity the Schubert-Eleven celebrated four straight wins in competitive games though. Additionally Bremen could be beat at home 5:1 last season. In order to achieve a result as good as that, they will have to improve their defensive performance however.

Current form SV Werder Bremen

New season, same problem. That’s how you can summarize Werder Bremen’s situation. It’s several years in a row now, that the former Champions League Starter is battling relegation. Especially shocking are the defensive performances of the team and that year after year. This season they again already received eight goals in two losses to Bayern Munich (0:6) and FC Augsburg (1:2) even though Werder has been very active on the transfer market this summer. But the structure of the roster seems chaotic. They signed Serge Gnabry even though they already paid 3,5 million Euros for Florian Kainz, who plays the exact same position. Other than that new manager Frank Baumann has done a pretty good job transfer wise, but the new players are not playing up to their potential yet. Additionally key players Kruse, Pizarro and Caldirola are out due to injury. The team seems insecure and the future of coach Skrpnik is even more uncertain than at the end of last season.

Betting forecast

Exaggerated one could say that the opponent’s current weakness is Gladbach’s greatest strength. But even despite Werder’s weak performances Gladbach would be the favorite. That’s why we believe that Borussia will get back on the road of success thanks to a home win. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
