Wolfsburg v Werder Bremen Betting Tips: High-scoring affair fancied at Volkswagen Arena

Feb 23 2017

In either of last few Bundesliga seasons, this fixture for Wolfsburg against Werder Bremen would’ve been nothing short of a home banker; however, as things stand in the current campaign, this pair are both occupying spots at the wrong end of the table and are separated by just three points.

Conceding goals has been a big problem for both this season and, as they now face each other, it would be a surprise if this changed here. Perhaps unsurprisingly, goals is the focus ahead of this fixture and the bet to go for is ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’.

In their respective home and away matches of late, both teams have actually picked up slightly in the scoring department, but still look anything very insecure at the other end. Wolfsburg have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five, whereas Bremen have kept just one during that time.

As betting on goals goes, Werder Bremen have pretty much been the go to team in the Bundesliga this season. ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ has landed in (76%) of their matches, while both teams have scored in an even greater 81% of their fixtures. For punters seeking goals in this match, these are very promising stats indeed.

In the goals department, Wolfsburg might not exactly match up to their guests – both teams have scored in 43% of their matches, while ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ has landed in 52% – but that is mainly down to the fact that for a long time they were struggling to score goals. In scoring twice against Hoffenheim in their last home fixture, Valérien Ismaël’s men got back on track and, in facing the worst defence in the Bundesliga, should certainly feel upbeat about their scoring chances on Friday night.

Given the way these two teams have performed at late, it is simply impossible to fancy either to keep a clean sheet. At the same time, both will almost definitely see this as a winnable game and, therefore, we should see plenty of attacking. Two teams going for it, coupled with a pair of calamitous defensive records, should lead to goals all-round in this fixture and backing ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’ is definitely the way to go.
