On Friday, September 9, in Bremen at the Weserstadion in the 6th round of the first Bundesliga, Werder will play against Augsburg. The meeting is scheduled to start at 18:30 GMT.
After a 2-0 win over Bochum in the Bundesliga, recently promoted Werder Bremen are looking to extend their successful start to their campaign.
Bremen looks set to break new Bundesliga records every game day as they become the first team in league history to score three times after the 89th minute of the third round.
Even though this win in Bochum marked consecutive Bundesliga victories on their travels, Bremen have recently struggled at home and have yet to take a victory in this campaign.
Manager Ole Werner spoke of the improvement last weekend, especially praising his defense, which kept its first clean sheet of the season in that win after Werder had scored at least four goals in four previous games.
Augsburg endured a rather embarrassing moment early in the campaign, posting the Bundesliga’s third-worst start out of five games.
Only in their first two seasons in the league have they scored fewer points at this stage and they are now close to repeating their worst Bundesliga record as they have only lost four consecutive games three times in their history.
The team even gave Hertha Berlin their first win of the season last weekend when Augsburg lost (2-0) at home, a result that drew an angry – and rare during their time in the Bundesliga – backlash from fans.
