Werder Bremen are a Bundesliga side based in North-West Germany. Nicknamed Die Werderaner, they play their home games at the Weserstadion. Their traditional kit is green shirts and while shorts.
Founded in 1899, they were one of the founder members of the Bundesliga, and have been German champions four times, and runners-up on seven occasions. They are also six time winners of the German Cup, and have won the League Cup once. In 1992 they won the European Cup-Winners Cup, and were runners-up in the 2009 UEFA Cup Final.
Their biggest rivals are fellow North German side Hamburg, with whom they contest the Nordderby. Because of Hamburg’s relegation to Bundesliga 2 these matches did not take place this season, but with the tipped to come straight back-up, Werder Bremen predictions for next season need to factor in these fixtures. They also some enmity to Schalke 04, after losing some of their top stars and staff to their Bundesliga rivals.
The club has two traditions each time they score a goal; a ship’s horn sounds in the stadium, and play the Proclaimer’s song “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”.
Although they have not been serious challengers for the Bundesliga title for a number of years, neither do Werder Bremen usually have to fight against relegation. That means that usually a safe Werder Bremen tip is that the side will finish the season mid-table. This season, though may be slightly, better, and with the Bundesliga campaign reaching its climax, Werder Bremen betting tips focus on whether the side can snatch the last Europa League that is available. If they manage to achieve that, they will play in Europe next season for the first time in eight years.
