Borussia Dortmund will face Werder Bremen at Signal Iduna Park Stadium at German DFB Pokal 1/8-Finals. Borussia Dortmund against Werder Bremen is the match with big interest after their previous matches in German Bundesliga. Review our thoughts on this match here below. 


Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund this year showing great results. They are favorites to win the Bundesliga and fight in Champions league this season. It is possible to fight in every tournament, but you need to have a big rotational squad with players at the same level as Barcelona, Paris SG or Juventus. In addition, this team is showing good results in the attack, however, they face problems in defense. Some of the main defensive players are injured, but all players in the middle and attack are fit and ready to play.

During the next week Borussia will meet Hoffenheim and Tottenham, so they need to give leaders a rest.

This season Dortmund is very good at shooting from direct free kicks, finishing scoring chances, counter attacks and coming back from losing positions. They are likely to play possessional football with short passes, control the game in the opposition’s half and attack down the right.


Werder Bremen

Werber Bremen have a tough season and now stands at 10th position. This team has problems this season because they play without a concrete leader. They are playing very simple football, that’s why they are not giving a fight for strong opponents. In 15 matches they played 14 times both scored with opponents. It is possible to fight for getting to Euro cups, but there are teams with much better football today in Bundesliga.

While this club plays at the same level, DFB Pokal is the only one possible trophy this season.

This season team Werder Bremen is great at attacking down the wings, creating through individual skill and coming back from losing position. They likely to play possessional football with short passes, play the offside trap and control the game in the opposition’s half. However, Werder facing problems at aerial duels, defending counter attacks and stopping the opponents from creating chances.



During the last six matches luckier and stronger was Dortmund by winning four times, once Werder won and they have one draw. All matches finished with goals from both sides, so these clubs likely to play very open football.
