Borussia Dortmund – Werder Bremen (Bundesliga)

Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen face each other this Saturday afternoon at Signal Iduna Park, for the last round of the Bundesliga. After the victory over Hoffenheim and the consequent recover of the 3rd place, Borussia Dortmund failed to win in the last round against Augsburg, putting once again the 3rd spot at risk, sitting only four goals ahead of Hoffenheim, with the same 61 points. Werder Bremen, on their turn, arrive here with hope of achieving european spots, but in order to do that they need a win here and are dependent on the teams above them dropping points.

Borussia Dortmund are 3rd placed in the Bundesliga table with 61 points, as well as 4th Hoffenheim, result of 17 victories, 10 draws and 6 defeats, with 68 goals scored and 37 goals conceded. After receiving and wining over Hoffenheim, recovering the 3rd spot in the league table, Dortmund failed to win in previous round at Augsburg’s home, drawing 1-1, and putted the 3rd spot at risk once again. Thomas Tuchel’s men are now obliged to win here and are lucky to play Bundesliga’s last round at home, in front of their supporters, where they are undoubtedly stronger, since they haven’t lost a single game here this season, for the german league, and is where they score more goals and also concedes less, scoring 37 goals and conceding only 9 in their 16 clashes played at Signal Iduna Park.

There is still something positive for the german coach to take from this disappointing season, since the least he can give to comfort their fans is the 3rd spot, which grants direct qualification to next season’s Champions League, and win the DFB Pokal, since the BVB are in the final against Frankfurt. The Black and Yellows are the kind of team with an offensive mentality, they score plenty of goals per season, are very versatile in the offensive sector, having very creative, fast and talented players, which makes this team a real danger in movement, especially in counter-attacks, attacking down the wings and in creating chances through individual skill. Aubameyang is the team offensive reference, the Bundesliga’s 2nd top scorer with 29 goals scored, only 1 less than Lewandowski.

In their last 5 official games, Borussia Dortmund has a record of 3 victories and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-3 victory at Borussia M’Gladbch’s home. This result was followed by 2-3 victory at Bayern Munich’s home, for the DFB Pokal, a 0-0 home draw against FC Koln, and in their last clash, a 1-1 draw at Augsburg’s home. Gotze, Schurrle and Weigl are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Burki – Ginter, Sokratis and Schmelzer – Piszczek, Kagawa, Sahin and Guerreiro – Dembélé – Reus and Aubameyang.

bundesligaWerder Bremen, on their turn, are 8th placed in the Bundesliga table with 45 points, result of 13 victories, 6 draws and 14 defeats, with 58 goals scored and 60 goals conceded.  Until Bundesliga’s 20th round, more precisely until February 11, Werder Bremen were fighting for maintenance, being the 16th placed in the league table, and out of the blue they pulled out an 11 games unbeaten streak, wining 9 and drawing 2, a fantastic sequence of results that left the team fighting for european spots. Now, they arrive here after two consecutive defeats, against FC Koln and Hoffenheim, where they conceded 9 goals and scored 7 in the process.

Bremen are dependent of Freiburg and FC Koln to lose their respective games in this last round of the competition, and if they win here, the european qualification is a certain factor, but it is easier said than done. The River Islanders are a team that scores a lot of goals per game, but also concedes a lot of goals as well. Away from home, in their last 5 games, they have only lost 1 match, wining 2, and they scored 15 goals and conceded 11 in the process. Here, at Signal Iduna Park, they will face a team with the same offensive mentality as theirs.

In their last 5 official games, Werder Bremen has a record of 3 victories and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-1 home victory over Hamburg. This result was followed by a 2-4 victory at Ingolstadt’s home, a 2-0 home victory over Hertha Berlin, a 4-3 away defeat against FC Koln, and in their last clash, a 3-5 home defeat against Hoffenheim. Hajrovic, Fritz, Eliers and Caldirola, all injured, and Robert Bauer, suspended, are all out for this tie.

Probable Lineup: Wiedwald – Veljkovic, Sané and Moisander – Selassie, Junuzovic, Delaney, Eggestein, Delaney and García – Kruse and Bartles.

Werder Bremen has only won 1 of their last 8 direct clashes, losing the remaining 7.
