Werder Bremen come up against bottom club Cologne in the Bundesliga this evening and the hosts can claim three vital points in their own survival bid.
Cologne have picked up on their travels recently with two wins in their last three away games, having previously managed just one away win in the Bundesliga all season, but overall they have just one win to show from their last six games.
The visitors are eight points adrift of safety and Werder are only two points clear of danger themselves but their home form should see them over the line come the end of the campaign.
Bremen are unbeaten at the Weserstadion since October, a run stretching eight games, and they head into tonight’s fixture seeking a third successive home victory.
Bremen have scored four in their last two home games and, as mentioned earlier, Cologne have picked up on their travels and should be able to make a game of this one.
The away side may have been struggling for results but they have been scoring and have only failed to find the back of the next once in their last 10 games.
