Bremen haven’t trailed at the break in any of their last 11 at home.
Werder Bremen v Bayer Leverkusen - Saturday 17:30, BT Sport Europe
Bremen lost their first four games of the season but have managed four points from their last two, winning at home to Wolfsburg and picking up a point at Darmstadt prior to the international break. Leverkusen also had a slow start as they lost two of their first three, but they’ve won their last two, including an impressive 2-0 home win against Dortmund last time out.
Bremen continue to struggle at the back as they’ve already shipped 17 goals in six games, this after they had the worst defensive record in the league in 2014/15 and the second worst last term. They managed just two wins from their first 14 home games last season, but they’ve now won four of their last six at the Weser-Stadion. However, they’ve lost nine of their last 11 at home to top-six sides but they did manage to find the net in six of these games.
Leverkusen’s road record since the start of last season is W9-D3-L8 but when travelling to bottom-half finishers last term they were W6-D3-L0 as they kept five clean sheets but led at the break in just four of these games. Indeed, since Bremen haven’t trailed at the break in any of their last 11 at home, we’re going to back Draw/Leverkusen Half-Time/Full-Time, with Leverkusen to win and both teams to score also worth considering at 3.1 since Bremen have netted in their last five home defeats.
