Promotion hopefuls Werder Bremen will travel to Bavaria to face Ingolstadt in the 2. Bundesliga this Saturday.

Werder Bremen have had a mixed start so far after dropping down to the Zweiteliga and will need to show some consistency to break into the top three of the second division.

Markus Anfang’s side have picked up eight points from a possible 15 so far this season, and the international break perhaps came at the wrong time for them.

The Green-Whites managed to beat Hansa Rostock 3-0 before the international break, but will have to work on building positive momentum once again.

Ingolstadt, on the other hand, have picked up just four points so far and find themselves in the bottom three.

Like Werder Bremen, they also picked up a win right before the international break. Ingolstadt beat Sandhausen 2-0 to move up from the bottom of the table.

Ingolstadt vs Werder Bremen Head-to-head

The head-to-head record between the two teams heading into Saturday’s fixture is even. Both sides have won this fixture twice, and there hasn’t been a single draw yet.

The last time they faced each other was in the Bundesliga, a game that Werder Bremen won 2-0. In fact, they did the double over the Bavarian outfit that season.
