Werder Bremen will host Stuttgart at the Weserstadion on Saturday afternoon in the second gameweek of the German Bundesliga.

Die Werderaner played out a 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg in their Bundesliga opener on their return to the top flight. A quickfire double from Niclas Fullkrug and Leonardo Bittencourt saw Bremen overturn an early deficit before their opponents leveled proceedings six minutes from time. Bremen sit mid-table in ninth place with one point and will look to pick up their first league win of the season this weekend.

Stuttgart, meanwhile, also had to settle for a point in their league opener, playing out a 1-1 draw against RB Leipzig. Naouirou Ahamada, 20, scored a first-half equaliser for the Reds, which was also his first professional goal.

The visitors will now look to grab maximum points against the newly promoted outfit this weekend.
