Wolfsburg vs Werder: prediction for the Bundesliga match
On August 6, Wolfsburg will host Werder Bremen at Volkswagen Arena. The River Islanders are coming back to Bundesliga, how will they perform in their first match? You'll find the answer in our prediction.
Wolfsburg finished the previous season at 12th position in the standings. Team picked up 42 points in 34 matches. The Wolves coasted past Carl Zeiss Jena in DFB-Pokal (1:0). It was not a perfect game for Niko Kovac's men. It is clear that players still need to gain form.
During the summer transfer window club signed Jakub Kaminski, Mattias Svanberg, Bartol Francic, Patrick Wimmer, Kilian Fischer and Dzenan Pejcinovic. Kevin Mbabu, Elvis Rexhbecaj and Xaver Schlager left the club.
Werder Bremen had a successful season in the 2. Bundesliga, they secured a 2nd place in the standings and earned a promotion back to Bundesliga. In the first official match of a new season team secured a 2:1 victory over Energie in DFB-Pokal.
During the transfer window team was mostly signing free agents. Coaching staff is expecting a lot from the former Kobenhavn player, Jens Stage.
