Set pieces should be interesting in this game, as Bremen's strong attacking may be countered by Leverkusen's strong defence. Bremen will need to be defensively alert, as Leverkusen will continue their tactical usage of attacking through balls. Bremen will hope that Leverkusen attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings. Leverkusen should be able to pick up some extra possession as they have performed better than Bremen in the air. With such huge stars in the side, Bremen should be able to finish chances if they can create them.

Bremen Vs Leverkusen Prediction

Leverkusen are the better team on paper, and will be looking to dominate the game. This should result in a win for Leverkusen. Don’t rule out Bremen though, as they will be keen to upset the travelling supporters. A bet of £10 would return £44.25 for a home win, £44.00 for a draw, and £19.87 for an away win.

This is set to be an eventful match in which we are expecting Leverkusen to create many more chances than Bremen. Bremen will probably play defensively, looking for opportunities to counter attack. Regardless, Leverkusen will probably win by a margin of two or more goals. Our prediction for this match is: Bremen 0-2 Leverkusen.
