Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Can Bayer Leverkusen follow up their midweek win over Atletico Madrid with another victory over Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Saturday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Bayer Leverkusen pulled a miraculous Champions League win over Atletico Madrid out of nowhere in midweek, though their form has been far dodgier domestically. Bayer have managed to keep just one clean sheet in six Bundesliga assignments since the summer and they could concede again against a Werder Bremen outfit that have already displayed a consistent knack for finding the net (12 goals in 6 games). The newly-promoted visitors have shipped 11 goals at the wrong end however, and they lack the defensive discipline to shut Bayer out on Saturday. With those factors aligned, backing both teams to register this weekend seems like a savvy bet.

Patrik Schick to Score Anytime

Patrik Schick has yet to get off the mark in Europe this season, though the Bayer Leverkusen frontman has found his feet in the Bundesliga in recent weeks. Schick managed to get his name on the scoresheet in each of his last two appearances in the German top-flight and the head of steam he is building should make him a danger man worth watching this weekend. Werder have been conceding plenty since their promotion and Schick should have opportunities to bolster his early tally for the campaign.
