German Bundesliga -- Match Time：3/3/2018 03:30 Saturday (GMT+8)
Borussia Mönchengladbach: Aiming for Europe (Recent Form: WLLLLW)
Borussia are on 7th place in Bundesliga with 34 points. They are currently 4 points short of 6th RB Leipzig (Europa League qualification). Team is in poor shape – 1 win, 0 draws, 4 losses in last 5 league matches. Borussia take on Werder on Friday. “I find it remarkable how Bremen have fought against relegation. The way they're playing makes them the best team in the bottom third of the table for me. They have a very good goalkeeper in Pavlenka, Moisander is solid at the back, Delaney in midfield and Max Kruse who is dangerous. Max is crucial to their side. Tomorrow, we need to stop him,” said coach Dieter Hecking. Raffael, Ibrahima Traoré, Fabian Johnson, Tobias Strobl, Julio Villalba, Oscar Wendt, László Bénes and Mamadou Doucouré are unavailable.
Probable line-ups: Sommer; Oxford, Ginter, Vestergaard, Elvedi; Kramer, Zakaria; Hofmann, T. Hazard; Stindl, Bobadilla
Werder Bremen: In good shape (Recent Form: WLWDWD)
Werder sit on 14th position in the standings with 26 points. They are now just 2 points clear of 16th Mainz (relegation play-offs), but the team is in good form – 3 wins, 1 draw, 1 defeat in last 5 matches in Bundesliga. Now it’s time for away encounter. “Borussia have some very strong players going forward and they will try to play their own style. We need to be secure in possession because they press high and will look to counter attack. Borussia have been solid in a lot of games and maybe not got the points they deserved. We have an idea of how we want to get at them in open-play,” said coach Kohfeldt.
Probable line-ups: Pavlenka; Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander, Augustinsson; Bargfrede; M. Eggestein, Delaney; Junuzovic, Kainz; M. Kruse
THE BETTING VERDICT:
Summing up, it looks like visitors are favourites of this clash. Borussia are struggling these days and they have many absentees, on the contrary to Werder who have no problems with the squad and who appear to be in good form.
