Köln are 4 games without a win but are coming in on the back of draws against 3rd and 4th place Hoffenheim and Dortmund, which will give them confidence. Werder Bremen is still unbeaten in their last 11 games, after a comfortable win against Hertha. This game will be decisive in the race for the european spots with Bremen 3 points ahead. The last three games will all be finals, for the teams in the battle, but this is the first and could potentially eliminate the first contender.

Players To Watch
SV WERDER BREMEN
Konstantin Rausch is back from injury and will likely come off the bench.
The injury “crisis” for Werder Bremen seem to be over and Alex Nouri is looking at a luxury problem of options.
Both teams are better on the counter attack so it will be interesting who will take control of the ball. Köln being at home should be expected to, nevertheless both teams are more than capable on both sides of the ball and it will be a hard fought match.
