For most intents and purposes, Werder Bremen are what you would call a mid-table team.
Though they’ve fallen far behind the incredible form they had during the days of Thomas Schaaf, their current positioning is the model of consistency. By and large, almost every season since 2010 ended between 8th and 13th. That is, until last year and a catastrophic disappointment that brought them a hairpin away from the relegation zone.
So what happened? Werder were beloved by fans of German football everywhere for their offensive tactics and team play, but last season it all descended into sloppiness and an abysmal concession rate. The overall impression is that 2019/20 was a flukish mishap, though. At odds of 2.25 for a Top 10 Finish, most pundits are expecting a return to Bremen’s comfortable mid-table.
Werder Key Players
Some blame Werder’s disappointing result from last season on the departure of Max Kruse, who was a pivotal part of most of their offence. Coach Florian Kohfeldt was often praised for his strategy that often allowed the striker to do all he can, but the departure left them with a nasty hole in the roster and few options for filling it back in. As it stands, Milot Rashica is Bremen’s greatest offensive asset, though the need for a true forward remains obvious.
Jiri Pavlenka is a goalie and this lad is definitely worth mentioning, despite the bad defensive record from last season. A few fresh fullbacks were transferred to the team such as Ömer Toprak and Felix Agu. This could allow the team to form a more traditional defensive line rather than the high block they had to contend with in 2019/20. Overall, the lineup seems much more balanced than last year, so there’s plenty of room for optimism.
Team they like to hate is certainly Hamburger. In Nordderby there is a lot of passion, but we won’t see that this year as HSV is in Bundesliga 2. In the other games you can expect something more than a regular game against Bayern and Schalke.
With 4 titles, 6 DFB Pokals (Cup) and even European Cup (UEFA Cup), they are one of the big names in German football. In the last decade they have not been on top, but they have great fans and history to be proud of. They are playing at Weserstadion, with more than 40.000 fans every week.
