Team News: Energie Cottbus
The Energie Cottbus manager will be grateful not to have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Werder Bremen
Werder Bremen boss Ole Werner has some current player fitness concerns. Benjamin Goller (Ligament Injury), Dikeni Salifou (Tear in the abductor muscle) and Jean Manuel Mbom (Achilles tendon rupture) will miss out on this game.
In our opinion, Energie Cottbus will manage to breach the defence of this Werder Bremen lineup, but one goal is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We are therefore anticipating a narrow 1-2 win for Werder Bremen at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
