Tonight's clash between relegation-threatened Bremen and Champions League-chasing Bayer Leverkusen brings down the curtain on matchday 26 in the Bundesliga.
Here's all the info you need ahead of the Monday night football.
🔑 Bremen vs Leverkusen key details
- 🏟 Weserstadion
- 🗓 18 May 2020
- ⌚️ 21:30 kickoff (EAT)
🧮 Likely starting XIs
🐝 Werder Bremen (3-4-2-1):
Pavlenka; Veljković, Vogt, Moisander; Selassie, Eggestein, Sahin, Friedl; Bittencourt, Rashica; Selke
🔵 Bayer Leverkusen (3-4-2-1):
Hrádecký; Tapsoba, Tah, Bender; Weiser, Aránguiz, Paulinho, Sinkgraven; Havertz, Diaby; Alario
The hosts have the worst home record out of any side in the division, while Leverkusen for their part had won seven of their previous nine matches before the league was suspended indefinitely. By virtue of those facts, this looks like a mismatch, but it remains to be seen how both sides adjust to the new regulations. Leverkusen's extra star power and quality upfront in the shape of Paulinho, Havertz and Alario should get them over the line.
Karim Bellarabi, Leon Bailey and Kerem Demirbay are all pushing for starts as well, highlighting the midfield strength in depth at Leverkusen.
