Wolfsburg is eager to break their three-game losing streak in the Bundesliga as they host Werder Bremen this Sunday. The visitors, on the other hand, are coming off a victory against Union Berlin in their last match.
Wolfsburg started the season strong with 12 points from six matches, but their league form has taken a hit in recent weeks.
They suffered successive defeats against strong opponents, including Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen, and Augsburg.
While the losses to the first two teams could be justified, the Augsburg defeat was particularly disappointing, as they squandered a 2-1 lead with just over 10 minutes of normal time remaining.
Despite a victory against RB Leipzig in the DFB-Pokal, Wolfsburg is keen to improve their league form.
Werder Bremen, on the other hand, had a rough patch with three consecutive losses before they turned things around with a win over Union Berlin.
Their form last season was concerning, with only one win in their final 12 matches. However, their recent victory has lifted their spirits, and they now aim to avoid relegation.

Wolfsburg will be without several key players due to injuries, including Patrick Wimmer, Koen Casteels, Rogerio, Lukas Nmecha, Kilian Fischer, and Felix Lange.
They are expected to field Jonas Wind, Joachim Maehle, and Maximilian Arnold in the starting lineup.
Werder Bremen is dealing with injuries to Christian Gross, Jiri Pavlenka, and Naby Keita, while Niklas Stark, Nicolai Rapp, and Romano Schmid are doubtful.
Senne Lynen may replace Schmid in the midfield if he’s not fit to play. Otherwise, Werner is likely to stick with the winning team.
Possible Starting Lineups
- Maehle, Lacroix, Jenz, Cozza;
- Svanberg, Arnold;
- Cerny, Majer, Gerhardt;
- Veljkovic, Friedl, Jung;
- Weiser, Lynen, Stage, Bittencourt, Deman;
- Borre, Ducksch
We predict that Wolfsburg will secure a 2-1 victory over Werder Bremen in this upcoming Bundesliga clash.
Wolfsburg’s recent DFB-Pokal win has likely boosted their confidence, and Werder Bremen’s primary goal will be to avoid relegation this weekend after their last win.
