Without stepping on the pitch since March, Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen meet this Monday at the close of round 26 of the Bundesliga, a historic round that marks the return of football to the highest level in Europe.
Fifth placed at the start of the round, with 47 points, the Leverkusen team comes to this game from a very positive series of ten consecutive matches without losing, in which they managed to be the first team to score in six and it was the formation to arrive at the break ahead in five. On the other hand, it should be noted that there have been three or more goals in eight of the last ten Bayer Leverkusen games.
On the green side of Bremen the statistics are less positive, since the penultimate placed at the start of the matchday, with 18 points, goes on five consecutive games without winning and eight consecutive suffering. On the other hand, in four of the last five games he was the first team to fit.
Finally, with an eye on the direct confrontation, the statistics are somewhat balanced in the last four matches, with one victory for each side and two draws. Interestingly, the two victories were always achieved by the visiting team. How will it be this time?
