When Wolfsburg hosts Werder Bremen during the Bundesliga on Sunday, they hope to snap a three-game losing streak. In contrast, the visitors triumphed over Union Berlin the previous weekend.
After an overwhelmingly successful start to the season, the home team has recently encountered difficulties in the league. Their most recent league game ended in a 3-2 loss to Augsburg, resulting in their fourth straight league loss to the Fuggerstädter. However, they turned things around that week, defeating RB Leipzig 1-0 in the DFB Pokal after a fierce battle. Wolfsburg, with 12 points after 9 matches, is in mid-table, in 9th place. In the league rankings, they are currently 3 points as well as 3 spots ahead of their opponents for the weekend, and a victory on Sunday will allow them to extend that lead. Kovac and his team will believe they can compete for Germany’s domestic cup without European football, but their top priority will be to improve their league performance.
Despite facing challenges in the league this campaign, Werder Bremen is still optimistic about making it through. Their latest game saw them defeat Union Berlin 2-0. They had taken the lead through an own goal in the 38th minute, and 15 minutes later Marvin Ducksch extended their lead with a right-footed shot. Bremen had a terrible season last year, winning only a single of their previous 12 games. Their losing streak would have raised serious concerns that they would have to fight for survival this year, which is still a possibility. Any win, though, has the power to drastically alter the atmosphere in a club. After being eliminated by Viktoria Koln during the opening round of the DFB-Pokal in early August, Die Werderaner should be more rested heading into their match over Wolfsburg. Werner hopes his men will take advantage of this and secure a victory.
