GERMANY: BUNDESLIGA – ROUND 5
Date: 23 September 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:30 EAT
Venue: Weserstadion (Bremen)
Despite staging a comeback from a 2-0 deficit to level the score with Heidenheim last Saturday, Werder Bremen ended up losing their most recent Bundesliga match 4-2. This result means they have only gathered three points out of a possible 12 so far in the season.
The primary culprit for their struggles remains their leaky defense, as they have conceded nine goals in their first four matches, including two matches where they allowed four goals each.
Werder Bremen desperately needs to improve their home form. They have lost five of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures at Weserstadion, and in four of those losses, they scored but still suffered defeat, highlighting their defensive issues.
Additionally, manager Ole Werner has expressed frustration with the progress of their star recruit, Naby Keïta, who has yet to be selected due to fitness concerns.
As for visiting Cologne, their record at this venue is also poor, having managed only one victory in their previous 18 visits (with five draws and 12 losses).
Their sole win was accompanied by their only clean sheet during that period, a feat unlikely to be repeated in the upcoming clash if Steffen Baumgart’s side continues their trend of conceding goals in this Bundesliga season.
Currently awaiting a ruling from the International Court of Arbitration for Sport on their one-year transfer ban, Cologne’s existing squad will need to work hard to avoid the relegation play-off spot. In their last six away league matches, they have only lost once (with three wins and two draws) and have scored in five of those games.
This should provide them with confidence as they aim to steer clear of the drop zone early in the season.
