WERDER BREMEN – KOLN SOCCER PREDICTION
The comeback draw (from 2-0 to 2-2) obtained in the anticipation of the last Bundesliga round against Borussia Mönchengladbach allowed Werder Bremen to take another important step towards salvation. If the direct does not seem to be under discussion, the goal is now to get as far away as possible from the third last place to avoid any playoff with the third classified of the Zweite Liga. The defeats of Mainz and Wolfsburg would allow Werder Bremen in the event of a win to increase to five points ahead of third position.
At the same time, however, the defeats of Mainz and Wolfsburg give the Koln an extra motivation to look for away win and get five points from salvation. Despite the improvements in the second round, the Cologne started from a really desperate situation for the few points accumulated until December. There have been improvements in the last few games, the team has been playing better since it has found some stable first-time holders due to injury like Risse and Hector, and scores more since Terodde came on off. At his side there will be Claudio Pizarro, who in the last round scored the first goal of the season becoming the fourth oldest scorer ever in the history of the Bundesliga. In this stage Pizarro scored 64 times in his career, who knows the classic goal of the former does not come.
The latest news on the formations
Aron Johannsson, scoring from the bench in the last game against Borussia Monchengladbach, this time should start holder, preferred to Belfodil. There will be in the initial formation also the captain Junuzovic who has now recovered from the physical problems of recent weeks. In the Colony, which should play with a 3-5-2 offensive enough with Risse and Hector exteriors ready to put in the penalty area cross repeating for Pizarro and Terodde, there will probably be a place in midfield for Jojic, with a sign in the last match against Stuttgart. In which the defense has however again committed too many errors. The seventh consecutive “goal” appears very likely.
