Werder Bremen is currently in eighth place in the Bundesliga standings with eight points won in the first five rounds. They recorded two wins, two draws, and one loss. Since this team had just returned to the elite from the second division, it was expected that they would record poor results, at least at the beginning of the competitive year.
But their period of adaptation to the new competition was shorter than expected. It is interesting that the Werder Bremen players play better away from home than at home at the beginning of the season. In the first two matches in front of the home crowd, they won only one point, while as guests they won seven points.
Niclas Fullkrug stood out as the leader of this team. The experienced striker has already scored five goals in the first five rounds, so he is currently the second top scorer in the Bundesliga. In addition to him, right back Mitchell Weiser should also be praised, who is quite productive and has already registered three assists in the new campaign.
On the other hand, the football players of Augsburg have been playing very badly. In the first five meetings, they won only three points and are currently in the relegation zone. They recorded one win and four losses and did not win a single point in the last three rounds.
Inefficient attack and weak defense are the main reasons for the poor results. They scored only three goals and conceded as many as 10. It is interesting that they won points only against the favored Bayer Leverkusen and it was a 2-1 road win, while they lost against weaker opponents.
In addition to the bad form of the entire team, the coaching staff has problems with injured players. Udokhai, Dorsch, Strobl, and Sarenren Bazee are ineligible, while Oxford’s performance is doubtful.
Werder Bremen and Augsburg last met in the 20/21 season. Both teams celebrated as hosts with an identical score of 2-0.
Werder Bremen (4-4-2): Pavlenka; Fiedel, Pieper, Veljkovic, Weiser; Jung, Gros, Stage, Schmid; Ducksch, Fullkrug
Augsburg (3-4-3): Gikiewicz; Bauer, Gouweleeuw, Gumny; Caligiuri, Baumgartlinger, Gruezo, Pedersen; Vargas, Demirovic, Berisha
Apart from their disastrous form, Augsburg have not won in the last three games in Bremen. In addition, Werder’s players have been quite accurate lately and have scored at least two goals in the last three Bundesliga games. Therefore, we expect a new efficient game from the local players and an easy victory.
