2019-20 Bundesliga – Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin Preview & Prediction

Werder Bremen to host Union Berlin and they are desperate for points to escape the relegation zone.  The team sits in the 16th position after 20 matches played, a point clear of Fortuna Dusseldorf and also two clears of rock-bottomed Paderborn. They hope to build on the positives of current results and close the six-point gap to both Berlin competitors, which could make the fight for top-flight survival more interesting. Die Werderaner shocked Borussia Dortmund (3-2) in DFB Pokal at this ground days ago, as Leonardo Bittencourt and Milot Rashica made it on the scoresheet. They lastly felt more confident in moving forward and with that in mind, there will be more to build on here as well.
