Schwarzwald-Stadion will be the host for Saturday’s fixture pitching mid-table SC Freiburg and relegation side Werder Bremen in a heated encounter. The Bundesliga kickoff for the match sets at 14:30 GMT.
Freiburg started their after-corona match on a high note after holding off side RB Leipzig to a 1-1 draw. Freiburg dominated most of the match while holding off the attacking threat posed by RB Leipzig.
Christian Streich’s camp aims at attaining a six top finish to secure Europa League action. A win over the weekend over side Werder Bremen place the side in contention for a top-six win and bridge the gap with side Wolfsburg.
Werder Bremen, on the other hand, is having a tough battle in the relegation side. The side is second last on the table with only 18 points clear offside Paperborn who rank last on the league. Die Werderaner’s side will have to pray for luck as they head into the clash against an in-form Freiburg.
A 4-1 loss to Bayern Leverkusen was enough to sink the side deep into the relegation battle. Will Streich’s side sink the ship of Die Werderaner’s further into the relegation battle? Will Werder Bremen turn the odds against in form Freiburg?
