SV Werder Bremen vs FSV Mainz Soccer Betting Prediction
In the second of three games of the English week, two table neighbors will meet on Tuesday. Fifteenth in the table SV Werder Bremen receives fourth in the table 1. FSV Mainz 05. Both teams got under the wheel last weekend. It will be a game that will set the trend, because for both teams “losing is prohibited” should they not want to spend the winter on a relegation zone.
SV Werder Bremen – statistics & current form
After the bitter 6: 1 away clap last Saturday at Bayern Munich, coach Kohfeldt, who has meanwhile become difficult to count, has now done so and has gone international ranks from the set goal of the season. He declared the relegation battle after the fourth bankruptcy in the fifth game in a row. There is not much else left for him, because the table does not lie. With 14 points, they are just one rank above the bottom line and have only a two point cushion on Fortuna Düsseldorf and only three points ahead of the first relegation place that 1. FC Köln currently holds. It cannot be ruled out that the people of Bremen spend the winter in a relegation zone. This would probably end the Kohfeldt era as Bremen coach. His work will also be extremely critically examined. Because some mistakes may have been made in the preparation. So many injured players don’t come from anywhere.
The duel at Bayern is quickly summarized. FC Bayern Munich, especially summer newcomer Coutinho, presented themselves in an absolute mood to play and it borders on a miracle that they did not take the lead early on. Instead, Rashica left Boateng on one of the few counterattacks of the guests and scored the 0: 1 in the 24th minute. Bremen keeper Pavlenka was booed at every goal kick because he played for time from the lead. Maybe he already knew what was coming, because the record champion showed no mercy afterwards. In the 45th minute Couthino equalized, a minute later he prepared the goal for the break by Lewandowski. Gebre Selassie also had to stay in the cabin due to an injury and in the second section the disaster started. Feeling every minute, it hit the box of the Hanseatic League. The outstanding Coutinho this afternoon scored twice in the second half and prepared Müller’s goal for the 5-1. Lewandowski was also able to expand his goalscoring account to 18 goals with another goal. Final score in an extremely one-sided game 6: 1.
Many will now say again that the Bremen team did not expect any increase in points at Bayern anyway. But the way in which the Hanseatics performed also worries many fans. No resistance and no game plan were recognizable, so it will be difficult to win in the home game against 1. FSV Mainz 05 next Tuesday.
Lineup SV Werder Bremen
Coach Kohfeldt is again forced to change the defense after the serious injury to Gebre Selassie.
Pavlenka – Lang, Veljkovic, Groß, Friedl – Eggestein, Sahin, Klaassen, Augustinsson – Osako, Rashica
FSV Mainz 05 – statistics & current form
Even the next opponent of Bremen’s 1. FSV Mainz 05 is not doing much better. You have lost three of the last five Bundesliga games and are in the middle of a relegation battle. With just one point more than the Hanseatic League, they currently occupy 14th place in the table and the men around the new coach Beierlorzer also got under their wheels last Saturday in front of their own fans against Borussia Dortmund. BVB traveled to Mainz with a broad chest and didn’t give the 05ers a chance from the start. After 15 minutes the whole of soccer Germany shook its head again because of a lack of a penalty. After a cross from Reus, St. Juste dived into the keeper style. It was clear to the naked eye that there should have been a clear penalty. But the Dortmund made this calculation without the referee. It continued without looking at the pictures. What a wrong decision. But the guests didn’t care, because the Mainz resistance was not there anyway. In the 32nd minute Reus set to 0: 1. It was his first away goal this season. Thanks to the referee, who refused to give the Westphalians another penalty, the Mainz team was only able to thank the referee for not leading up to the break. After a clear foul by Fernandes on Hazard, the pipe remained silent and he did not look at the pictures again.
After the change of sides, the black and yellow continued to play cat and mouse with the Rheinhessen. But it took until the 66th minute before Sancho closed a picture book counter to 0: 2. The Englishman has scored five times in the past four Bundesliga games and prepared three more goals. Three minutes later, the third Dortmund striker also hit Hazard and, after Reu’s preparatory work, set the score to 0: 3. Schulz put the final point in the 84th minute with 0: 4.
For the Beierlorz men it could also be stick-thick. They have to go to Bremen on Tuesday and have Bayer 04 Leverkusen as their guest on the last matchday. If they do not score in both games, they spend the winter in a relegation zone.
Lineup 1.FSV Mainz 05
St. Juste is missing a yellow card. Otherwise Coach Beierlorzer has all men on board.
Zentner – Hack, Fernandes, Niakhate – Öztunali, Brosinski, Kunde, Aaron, Boetius – Mateta, Quaison
SV Werder Bremen vs FSV Mainz Soccer Betting Prediction
At SV Werder Bremen the air seems to be outside. Not only in terms of joy and commitment, the Hanseatic whistle from the last hole. The squad ceiling is also getting thinner. After Langkamp and Toprak, Gebre Selassie hit the substitute center-back last Saturday. He falls out with a serious thigh injury for several weeks and forces his trainer Florian Kohfeldt to change the defense again. But there is a lot going on in Mainz too. Both teams are longing for the winter break, are currently meeting at eye level and will share the points on Tuesday.
