Facts ahead of Bremen clash

All the important facts and figures ahead of the Fohlenelf’s Friday night fixture at home to Werder Bremen (Kick off 20:30)

Crowd: Around 51,500 tickets have been sold for the game in BORUSSIA-PARK tomorrow night, with around 2,500 seats still available.

Head to head between Borussia and Bremen: This will be the 99th meeting between the two sides in the Bundesliga, and the current stats make for close reading. Bremen had won 38 of the encounters, with Borussia winning 37. The sides have drawn 22 times. The Foals have won more games at home to Werder than against any other team (29) and have scored more goals in their own backyard against the Green-Whites than against any other team (110). Borussia have also won six of the last seven against Bremen, and only have a better record against Hertha Berlin in this same time period.

Statistics: After four straight defeats Borussia finally celebrated victory last weekend with a 1-0 win over Hannover, but the Fohlenelf have lost their last two home games without scoring a goal, something which has not happened in more than four years. All of Werder’s six wins so far this season have come under Florian Kohfeldt, and they have taken all three points from three of their last four games. Only Munich (18), Frankfurt and Stuttgart (27) have conceded fewer goals than Bremen (28). The last time the Green-Whites had such a good defensive record at this stage was in 2005/06 (26).
