WBN vs FRK Dream11: Werder Bremen play host to Eintracht Frankfurt for the first Bundesliga fixture of game week 22. Werder Bremen are currently in 12th place, bagging just 5 wins from 21 games and are just 5 points clear of the relegation zone, although they do have a game in hand. They have also drawn 8 games, one of which was against their opponents in what was the reverse fixture in Frankfurt. The away side have been in excellent form of late and have won 6 of their last 7 games. They are currently on a 5-game winning streak and beat reigning champions, Bayern Munich, last week. That must have been a major confidence booster for them and the Eagles will look to build on that with another solid performance against Werder.

A) Werder Bremen Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Florian Kohfeldt will be without Luca Plogmann, Ludwig Augustinsson and Patrick Erras who are all injured.
Expected changes: Werder are likely to play the same side that lost to Hoffenheim although a formational change may be seen in favour of a 3-4-3. The same backline of Milon Veljkovic, Omer Toprak and Marco Friedl should carry on. Maximilian Eggestein could be deployed in a deeper midfield role alongside the likes of Kevin Mohwald, Theador Selassie and Felix Agu. Leonardo Bittencourt and Milot Rashica will start right behind the lone striker – Joshua Sargent.
Werder Bremen Starting XI (probable):
Jiri Pavlenka (GK)
B) Frankfurt Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Evan N’Dicka is suspended and will play no part in the WBN vs FRK Dream11 Prediction.
Expected changes: Adolf Hutter is very unlikely to change a winning team but he will have to accommodate the suspension of Evan N’Dicka. Makoto Hasebe could fall back into defence as Djibril Sow comes into the midfield 4. Erick Durm could be given a look in over Almamy Toure. Upfront, Daichi Kamada and Amin Younes should continue to keep their place behind the striker, Andre Silva as Luka Jovic will have to make do with a start on the bench.
Frankfurt Starting XI (probable):
Kevin Trapp (GK)
Bet365: Werder Bremen –
Paddy Power: Werder Bremen – 16/5; Frankfurt – 3/4
Werder Bremen would’ve loved to win a game after their loss to Hoffenheim last week but it will be very difficult to beat a side that is as in-form as Frankfurt are. The win against Bayern Munich will lead them to believe that they are good enough to beat any side in the league and that confidence is likely to propel them to a win against Werder. The home side will sit deep and set up with a low block against Frankfurt in hopes to shut them out completely. In the race for the top spots in Germany, the WBN vs FRK Today Match Prediction should be a straightforward win for Frankfurt and any other result will be a huge blow to their hopes.
Most Likely Result: Frankfurt win
Andre Silva – Andre Silva has been excellent for Frankfurt this season and has scored 18 goals and provided 2 assists in 20 starts for the club. He is also in amazing form with 6 goals in his last 4 games. The Portuguese is behind only Robert Lewandowski in the race of the golden boot.
Joshua Sargent – The 21-year-old has been great for Werder Bremen but will be desperate to do more for the club. He has created 23 chances so far and dispatched 14 shots on target while completing 56% of his attempted dribbles.
Amin Younes – Younes has been one of the best players at Frankfurt of late. He scored the second goal against Bayern Munich which was a superb finish. Younes will be playing behind Andre Silva and will be creating a lot of chances for him to finish.
Daichi Kamada – Playing alongside Younes and behind Silva is Daichi Kamada who has been in great form. Not only does he already have 8 assists in the league already, and he also has a goal and 2 assists in the last 2 games, including an incredible performance against Bayern Munich last weekend.
Filip Kostic – Adding to the list of in-form attackers that Frankfurt have, Kostic too has been contributing very well from the left-flank. He has 2 goals and 6 assists in his last 5 games for the club and will be sure to wreck-havoc against the Werder Bremen backline.
