Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen Preview

Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen

Competition – DFB Pokal

Stadium – BayArena

Date: 6th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Bayer Leverkusen host Werder Bremen in this DFB Pokal quarter-final just days after failing to build a three-game winning streak following their 1-3 home loss to Bayern Munich.

Bayer Leverkusen’s recent home form except that loss to Bayern Munich has been great and they could get all three points against this Werder Bremen side who are struggling with inconsistency at the moment.

Their loss to Bayern Munich brought an end to a very lengthy unbeaten run but they did pick themselves up in their next game against Mainz and they are currently unbeaten in their last three games.

Werder Bremen are not a side you can bank on to keep a clean sheet away from home at the moment and they have also struggled for consistency with 4 losses from their last six away games.

Some of their games have been tough which included a trip to this ground in December and they will hope they can do better this time around.

Bremen have however, put up some strong defensive displays in some of their previous games including a 0-0 draw at Hertha Berlin and a shock 1-2 win away from home in their last league game against Schalke.

Bookmakers make Leverkusen strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game.
