Team News

Bochum
Werder Bremen
  • Ivan Ordets has been ruled out "indefinitely" following a thigh injury.
  • Back up keeper Michael Esser has a knee issue. Takuma Asano is with Japan at the Asian Cup.
  • Amos Pieper underwent ankle surgery and will be out for a few months.
  • Milos Veljkovic is struggling with a knee injury.
  • Ex-Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is away at the AFCON, while Leon Opitz has an ankle problem.
  • Spyros Angelidis has fractured his hand.

Prediction

  • All four of Werder's wins have come on their own patch, which is useful as they've developed travel sickness, only picking up a couple of points away from home.
  • Bremen have won their last five against Bochum doing the double (3-0, 2-0) last season without conceding.
  • Bochum have proved tougher to beat this season, but the most draws in the league, seven, has prevented any genuine momentum.
  • Minnows Bochum can grab the three points with goals expected at both ends.
