*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Werder Bremen are lodged in midtable and have little to play for on the final day of the campaign, though they are unbeaten in four and are unlikely to roll over for a Bochum side that might need a result to stay up.

Bochum can lose and still survive if other results go their way on Saturday, however, they would prefer to control their own destiny and wins in two of their last three matches has put them in a favourable position. Our football tips think Bochum’s greater motivation could earn them at least a point at the wohninvest WESERSTADION.

Werder Bremen vs Bochum prediction
Manuel Riemann could be busy between the sticks on Saturday – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Manuel Riemann

Only bottom club Darmstadt (82) have conceded more goals than Bochum (70) in this season’s Bundesliga and the visitors will need Manuel Riemann to pull out one of his best performances of the campaign to help plug the gaps at Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Riemann’s reflexes could be tested

Admittedly, 35-year-old Riemann has been overworked this season and has been forced to make 3.40 saves per game on average in the Bundesliga, however, he was beaten five times when Bochum were trounced by Leverkusen last weekend and the veteran stopper needs a more solid display on Saturday.
