Werder Bremen vs Mainz Prediction and Betting Tips | October 15th 2022

TSG Hoffenheim v SV Werder Bremen - Bundesliga
SV Werder Bremen will host Mainz on Saturday - Bundesliga

Werder Bremen will host Mainz at the Weserstadion on Sunday afternoon in another round of the 2022-23 Bundesliga campaign.

Die Werderaner have been solid on their return to the top flight, with manager Ole Werner leading the side to memorable wins. They beat Hoffenheim 2-1 in their last league outing, with Niclas Fullkrug providing the assist for his side's opener before stepping up to score the winner from the penalty spot three minutes from time.

Werder Bremen sit fifth in the Bundesliga standings with 15 points from nine games. They will now be looking to continue their good run of form when they play on Saturday.

Mainz, on the other hand, seem to have lost their way after a decent start to their season which saw them pick up three wins in four matches. They played out a 1-1 draw against RB Leipzig in their last game and looked set to wrap up all three points before Christopher Nkunku drew Die Roten Bullen level late in the game.

The visitors sit 12th in the league table with 12 points from nine games and will be hopeful of adding to that tally this weekend.
