Werder Bremen v Borussia Dortmund: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Borussia Dortmund will be aiming to consolidate their place in the top four of the Bundesliga when they visit the Weserstadion on Saturday evening to take on a Werder Bremen side they have an impressive recent record against.

BVB are coming into the weekend sitting fourth in the standings, but they may well have been leapfrogged by fifth-placed RB Leipzig by the time they kick off against Bremen.

That is likely to increase the pressure on Edin Terzic's side ahead of the contest, while Dortmund will also have one eye on the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie with PSV Eindhoven, which is scheduled for next Wednesday.

With outside hopes of qualifying for Europe themselves, Bremen should prove no pushovers on home soil, although they will head into this game on the back of a draw with bottom-of-the-table Darmstadt and a defeat at Hoffenheim.

Werder Bremen v Borussia Dortmund betting tips and predictions

Borussia Dortmund to win - 17/20

Trips to Bremen have proved fruitful for Dortmund over recent years, as they have won eight and drawn two of their last 11 top-flight games at the Weserstadion, last losing a league fixture at the venue in December 2014.

That bodes well for BVB to pick up another three points on Saturday, especially as they will be heading into the game on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run on their travels and having lost just once on the road all season in the Bundesliga.

Bremen had taken an eye-catching 13 points from their first six league matches of 2024 to move into the European conversation, but that improvement has since been derailed by their last two results against Darmstadt and Hoffenheim.

That makes this clash appear all the more difficult for Ole Werner and his side and Dortmund look well priced at 17/20 to complete the league double over Bremen after they claimed a 1-0 success when the two teams met at Signal Iduna Park in October.

Niclas Fullkrug to score anytime - 6/4

Germany international Niclas Fullkrug will be making his first return to Bremen after leaving the club for Dortmund over the summer and he is certainly in the kind of goalscoring form that could see him hurt his former club.

The 31-year-old, who began the season by scoring for Bremen in the DFB-Pokal, has added a further 12 goals in a Dortmund shirt, most recently finding the back of the net in last month's away draw at Wolfsburg.

With fellow forward Sebastien Haller still sidelined through injury, there is little doubt Fullkrug will lead the line at the Weserstadion and nobody should be surprised to see him get on the scoresheet.

Borussia Dortmund to score exactly two goals - 9/4

As well as having a handy knack of avoiding defeat away to Bremen, Dortmund are also pretty consistent with the amount of goals they score at the Weserstadion.

Of their last five visits to the venue, BVB have found the back of the net exactly twice on each occasion, with the three most recent of those trips all ending in victories - a pair of 2-0 successes and a 2-1 win in December 2020.

Stretching that record back even further and Dortmund have scored exactly two goals in six of their last seven away games at Bremen and it is 9/4 that they repeat that trick again this weekend.

It is also worth noting that Dortmund scored twice in their most recent away fixture at Union Berlin, with Karim Adeyemi and Ian Maatsen netting in a 2-0 win. 

It is fair to say that Bremen have been warned.
