Werder Bremen are not quite the team they were when making it to the Europa League final in 2009, which they lost in extra time to Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk. Finishing 14th, 9th and 13th in the last three seasons respectively, coach Robin Dutt could have his work cut out this season if his side don’t start well.

Braunschweig have nothing to lose though and we fully expect them to take the game to Bremen with a fair chance they will take them by surprise and get the result. You can back the home win at very fair betting odds of 2/1 with 888sport, a price that appeals far more than the 7/5 with BetVictor for Die Werderaner to take victory.

In Torsten Lieberknecht, Braunschweig have a young and talented coach who has already proved his worth, taking his side from the third tier to the top flight in his short tenure. As such, do not be surprised if the Lions scare a few of the bigger sides this season, beginning with Bremen.
