LOOKING to follow up another winning weekend in Europe is Mark O'Haire (@MarkOHaire). Mark is back in the Bundesliga for Wolfsburg's meeting with Werder Bremen and has an 8/5 shot to share…
Wolfsburg v Werder Bremen | Saturday 14.30
Wolfsburg haven’t had the best starts to the season. Wednesday’s surprise 1-0 defeat at Hertha Berlin means they’ve won just 1/5 in the Bundesliga and were also on the end of that 4-1 loss at Everton in the Europa League. But that midweek reverse also ended one club record as the Wolves failed to score for the first time in 31 consecutive league games.
Interestingly though, it did continue another club record as Dieter Hecking's team have now conceded in their past 19 Bundesliga outings. So immediately we turn to the Both Teams To Score price. Alas, it's too short so instead I'm getting involved with backing the hosts to win and Both Teams To Score when Werder Bremen visit the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday.
Wolves have won one and drawn one of their two opening home fixtures, without keeping a clean sheet. And in 2013/14 they collected 11 wins from their 18 league matches, shutting out just four visiting teams but racking up 37 goals themselves. Impressive, eh?
Well Werder Bremen have looked hapless defensively. The visitors went down 3-0 in midweek to a Schalke side that have so far failed to impress and have now seen their opponents score 13 in just five games.. But one chink of optimism for away supporters is the fact the Schalke loss was the first time they’ve failed to trouble the scoresheet all season.
Bremen only failed to net in 4/18 on the road in 2013/14 but they did lose all eight games at top-eight clubs and leaked 24 goals in the process. This time their three away matches have produced 16 goals to make it 9/14 Bremen away games that have now seen Over 3.5 Goals. Coincidentally, 9/12 of Wolfsburg's home matches have also seen four goals or more.
But we'll back the home side to do the business in a game that should see plenty of goalmouth action!
