Match Preview

Struggling Werder Bremen have managed just three Bundesliga wins all season (W3, D5, L7), and it is clear to see that their biggest issue is a poor defence. They are yet to keep a single Bundesliga cleansheet, and have averaged 2.33 goals conceded per game. That represents the second-worst defensive record in the division.
Whilst fragile in defence, ‘Die Werderaner’ do at least boast a mid-ranking attack, having scored at least one goal in nine of their previous ten league fixtures. This has contributed to an overall record of both teams scoring in 13 of their 15 league matches. Additionally, there have been over 2.5 goals in 13 of those games too.
Mainz are also in poor shape, losing ten of their 15 league matches (W5, L10), and stand as the only team in the division with a worse defensive record than their Werder Bremen. Damningly, Mainz’s various preceding Bundesliga opponents have scored two or more goals in 11 of their 15 league games this season.
The visitors will be hoping desperately to improve on their poor recent H2H record with Bremen, winning just one of the previous five league meetings (W1, D1, L3). Notably, they conceded two or more goals in four of those encounters.
Players to watch: Milot Rashica has three goals in three games for Werder Bremen, and he netted against Mainz the last time these two teams met.
Mainz midfielder Levin Oztunali has two goals in his two previous league away matches, both of which came in the first half.
Stat attack: Werder Bremen have scored 26.09% of their league goals inside the opening 15 minutes.
Mainz have conceded 34.21% of their league goals after the 75th minute.
Werder Bremen have led at half-time in just two of their seven league home games.
