Werder Bremen will entertain Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday and the in-form hosts will further raise their bid for survival in the Bundesliga with another important win.
Werder won two of their last three games, beating Freiburg 1-0 and then Schalke on Saturday, both away from home, by the same scoreline.
Florian Kohfeldt ‘s side also picked up a respectable point against Borussia Monchengladbach in order to make it three games without loss and now they seem to have the stamina for the bottom battle.
They remain second bottom, but now with a game in hand, they are just two points behind Fortuna Dusseldorf, who occupy the relegation play-off place.
With no fans present in the past fortnight, away teams have thrived with Werder ‘s two victories coming on the road, but a home victory looks more likely here with Werder’s new-found determination once again expected to be on show against incoherent Frankfurt.
Eintracht also claimed a much-needed 2-1 win in Wolfsburg on Saturday, but they endured a tough 5-2 defeat in champions-elect Bayern Munich and 3-1 home loss to Borussia Monchengladbach before an entertaining 3-3 draw in Freiburg ‘s home.
Those high-scoring matches – the four games from Eintract since the break have created 20 goals – point to action at both ends, but with Werder the more successful they go to beat a hard-pinning Frankfurt side.
There is no question that both sides are now looking in better shape compared to the start of the resumption, but Werder looked sturdy enough at the back and looked ahead more effectively.
Frankfurt should be able to score on Wednesday but they looked weak on the back, conceding 22 times in their last seven games, and the 2-1 home win is the most appealing bet for a correct score.
Eintracht lost four games away this season in the Bundesliga by that scoreline and three of those 2-1 losses came to sides – Augsburg, Mainz and Paderborn – who, like Werder, are actually in the table below them.
