. All Freiburg v Werder Bremen game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below (plus the best game odds).
Freiburg go into this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Bundesliga 1 drawn result vs RB Leipzig. In that game, SC Freiburg had 34% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for SC Freiburg was Manuel Gulde (34'). RB Leipzig had 23 shots on goal with 8 on target. Yussuf Poulsen (77') scored for RB Leipzig.
Under three goals per game were seen in 5 of the last 6 meetings where Freiburg have been involved. Regarding the goal split from that period, their opponents scored an aggregate of 6 while Breisgau-Brasilianer managed a tally of 6. We will have to see if that trend can be sustained here.
Pre-game facts show that Freiburg:
- haven't won against SV Werder Bremen in their last 3 league games.
- have not beaten SC Freiburg when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 3 league games.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Bayer 04 Leverkusen in Bundesliga 1 action, Werder Bremen and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one. In that match, SV Werder Bremen had 36% possession and 10 shots at goal with 1 on target. The only player to score for SV Werder Bremen was Theodor Gebre Selassie (30'). Bayer 04 Leverkusen got 13 shots at goal with 6 on target. Kai Havertz (28', 33'), Mitchell Weiser (61') and Kerem Demirbay (78') scored for Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
The numbers tell their own story, and Werder Bremen have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 15 goals overall. Defensively, Die Werderaner just haven’t been too solid at all. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, of course.
Pre-game facts show that SV Werder Bremen:
- haven't won against SV Werder Bremen in their previous 3 league matches.
- haven't beaten SC Freiburg when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
- have not won away from home in their last 3 matches in the league.
Head to head
Checking on their most recent head-to-head clashes stretching back to 23/09/2017 shows that Freiburg have won 1 of these & Werder Bremen 2, with the number of draws being 3.
A combined sum of 15 goals were shared by the two clubs during those clashes, with 7 of them for Breisgau-Brasilianer and 8 coming from Die Werderaner. That’s an average goals per game of 2.5.

That time, Werder Bremen managed 45% possession and 21 attempts on goal with 10 of them on target. Goals were scored by Milot Rashica (9') and Theodor Gebre Selassie (59'). Freiburg had 13 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Nils Petersen (28', 93') scored. The match was refereed by Christian Dingert.
Team News: Freiburg
Lukas Kübler (Knee injury) and Chang-Hoon Kwon (Hamstring Injury) aren’t available for Freiburg gaffer Christian Streich.
We think that Breisgau-Brasilianer should kick off with a 3-4-3 system for this game and select Alexander Schwolow, Dominique Heintz, Manuel Gulde, Robin Koch, Jonathan Schmid, Janik Haberer, Nicolas Höfler, Christian Günter, Lucas Höler, Vincenzo Grifo and Nils Petersen.
Team News: Werder Bremen
Bremen boss Florian Kohfeldt has multiple availability issues to deal with. Jiri Pavlenka (Groin injury), Michael Lang (Back injury), Kevin Möhwald (Knee injury), Niclas Füllkrug (Cruciate ligament injury), Sebastian Langkamp (Back injury) and Omer Toprak (Calf Injury) are not ready for selection. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Michael Lang and Davy Klaassen.
There’s a good chance that Die Werderaner seem most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-2-1 formation, choosing Jiri Pavlenka, Niklas Moisander, Kevin Vogt, Milos Veljkovic, Theodor Gebre Selassie, Maximilian Eggestein, Davy Klaassen, Marco Friedl, Milot Rashica, Leonardo Bittencourt and Davie Selke.
We’re of the view that Werder Bremen are capable enough to breach the defence of this Freiburg side, but it is unlikely to be enough to avoid defeat. We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 victory for Freiburg at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
