With a real opportunity to extend on what has been a glittering return to action, a revitalized Werder Bremen will hope to carry on their charge for Bundesliga safety when they host Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night.
Shocking many once again and picking up a 1-0 win away at Schalke over the weekend, Die Werderaner have collected seven points out of a possible nine in their last three outings and find the mood at the Weserstadion at a season-high.
On the flip side, also surprising many across the Bundesliga and landing a 2-1 win away at Wolfsburg on Saturday, Frankfurt are now simply trying to find some much-needed stability.
Despite claiming four points from their last two appearances, the midweek guests have recorded just a sole Bundesliga victory in their last seven outings.
You might be interested to know, in a contest that should see an abundance of chances, seven of the last eight meetings between Bremen and Frankfurt have seen over 2.5 goals and another high-scoring contest on Wednesday can be found at 8/11 with Bet365.
Although Werder Bremen might still find themselves in a real battle to extend on their 52-year Bundesliga status, the mood in Florian Kohfeldt’s camp will undeniably be at a season-high.
Picking up what was a deserved 1-0 win away at a struggling Schalke over the weekend, the former German giants are enjoying a three-match Bundesliga unbeaten run, their most fruitful run since opening 2020.
Now with their sights firmly set on completing what would be a great escape for Wednesday’s hosts, there is no doubt that fans around Bremen will be most excited by their side’s newfound resolve at the back.
Recording yet another clean sheet away at the Veltins Arena on Saturday afternoon, Die Werderaner now find themselves enjoying their best defensive run of the season so far.
Remarkably, Kohfeldt’s side have now recorded three clean sheets on the bounce, a run that also saw them snatch what was a stunning 1-0 win away at top-six outsiders Freiburg last week.
Going over 300 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net, you might be interested to know that Bremen can be found priced at 3/1 with Ladbrokes to land another clean sheet in midweek.
Silva leads the Frankfurt charge
Putting in what was a much-needed performance away at European contenders Wolfsburg over the weekend, Eintracht Frankfurt’s 2-1 victory on the road has eased some of the relegation pressure on the Eagles.
While Adi Hutter’s men might have drastically failed to match a similar level that they set last season, there is no doubt that Wednesday’s guests will be excited by Andre Silva’s stunning run of form at the back end of the campaign.
Once again converting from the spot at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday afternoon, the Portuguese international finds himself in the midst of a real purple patch.
Along with finding the net in their dramatic 3-3 draw against Freiburg last week, Silva has recorded back-to-back Bundesliga goals and even more impressive, the 24-year-old has recorded six strikes in his last eight matches across all competitions.
Enjoying his brightest spell for Hutter’s men since making a loan switch from AC Milan, you might be interested to know that Silva can be found priced at 7/4 with Coral to extend on his tally in midweek.
