Borussia Dortmund have scored at least three goals in eight of their last nine Bundesliga games. Werder Bremen have failed to score in six of their last nine Bundesliga games.
Werder Bremen will host Borussia Dortmund this Saturday in German Bundesliga action. Werder Bremen will hope to cause an upset this weekend versus third-placed title challengers Borussia Dortmund, as they continue their battle against relegation. However, Werder Bremen’s recent run of form won’t give them confidence going into this game.
Werder Bremen will be hoping to avoid their fifth straight Bundesliga loss in this weekend’s fixture. In addition to their current losing streak, Werder Bremen have been the worst side in the Bundesliga over the past 12 games. They have lost a total of 10 games in the last 12 game period, earning just six points in that time.
Furthermore, Werder Bremen currently have the worst home record in the Bundesliga. Saturday’s hosts have earned just five points from their 10 Bundesliga home games this season. This is at least two points fewer than any other Bundesliga side has earned at home.
This is also 10 points fewer than Dortmund have earned away from home this season.
In contrast to Werder Bremen, Dortmund have been enjoying a fairly impressive run of form recently. Over the last 12 games, in which Werder Bremen have been the Bundesliga’s worst side, Dortmund have earned a total of 23 points, which is an impressive 17 points more than Werder Bremen have earned in that time.
Dortmund’s points total over the last 12 games is also a better points total than all but three other Bundesliga sides have earned in that time. In addition to that, Dortmund have won seven of their last 10 Bundesliga fixtures. They will hope to earn another win versus struggling Werder Bremen this weekend.

Sixth-placed Schalke will host second-placed RB Leipzig this Saturday in German Bundesliga action. Leipzig will hope to earn their second Bundesliga win in a row, to build off of last weekend’s victory over Werder Bremen. However, Leipzig’s recent dip in form may be cause for concern for the visitors going into Saturday’s fixture.
Leipzig have won just one of their last four Bundesliga fixtures. Furthermore, the title challengers have also failed to win each of their last three Bundesliga away fixtures. Leipzig have now won just three of their last five Bundesliga away games.
Leipzig’s recent run of relatively disappointing results has resulted in them slipping from their previous position at the top of the Bundesliga table to now sitting in second place behind new league leaders Bayern Munich. Despite sitting in second place in the table, Leipzig sit in sixth place in the Bundesliga’s form table for the past six games.
Saturday’s hosts Schalke have been a difficult side to defeat in recent weeks.
Schalke have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures, that loss coming away to Bayern Munich on the 25th of January. Schalke have currently lost the second-fewest amount of games in the Bundesliga this season, trailing only RB Leipzig themselves. They have lost just four Bundesliga games this season.
Schalke are also currently undefeated in each of their last 10 Bundesliga home games. Schalke have lost just one of their 11 Bundesliga home games this season, that loss coming, once again, versus Bayern Munich, back in August. Schalke may be likely to make life difficult for Leipzig this weekend.
Schalke are currently undefeated in each of their last 10 Bundesliga fixtures. RB Leipzig have failed to win each of their last three Bundesliga away games.
Schalke have scored at least two goals in four of their last six Bundesliga games. RB Leipzig have scored at least two goals in 11 of their last 13 Bundesliga games.
