It’s arguably the best game in the Bundesliga this weekend with Borussia Dortmund set to head on the road to the WESERSTADION where Werder Bremen have crept into eighth in the table.
It didn’t look as if a chance to jump into the top nine in the Bundesliga would have been on the cards following on from losing in a stunning 7-1 defeat to Koln and then a narrow 2-1 loss to Union Berlin.
Since then, the club have gone on to defeat Wolfsburg by a narrow 2-1 scoreline and then ease past Stuttgart on the road in a 2-0 win. It now puts them in ninth but a chance to get into the European spots is going to be tough given how tight those positions are.
As for Dortmund, they have managed to win all four of their games since the World Cup. It has brought in just one clean sheet, but they have also secured 11 goals in this time and smashed top four rivals Freiburg 5-1.
Dortmund are now back up into third and behind Union Berlin by just two points and adrift of the league leaders Bayern Munich at the top by three points.
