By William Hall

Werder Bremen will search for its first win of the season on Saturday when they play host to an improving Schalke side in the Bundesliga. Werder Bremen got a 1-1 draw on Sunday against Hertha in Berlin, while Schalke were 3-1 winners over Stuttgart. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Last season's results were split, with both home teams getting a win apiece from proceedings. It has been a very even tie down the years, so there is no obvious winner in that regard here. With Werder Bremen being the home team in the match, the advantage is slightly with them. Schalke have already shown to be untrustworthy away from home, so until they prove otherwise this is the way to go.

Werder Bremen Preview

Werder Bremen got their season off to a slow start largely due to scheduling difficulties. They had to face two sides that qualified for the Champions League in Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim, and they unsurprisingly lost those matches. However, they held their own in each. But things didn't get a whole lot easier for them on Sunday when they traveled to the Olympiastadion to take on Hertha Berlin, who have been very strong at home in the last season or so. Werder captured its first point of the season on the night in a 1-1 draw. They had gone behind to Matthew Leckie's 38th minute goal, an found themselves down at the break. But that wouldn't be permanent as Thomas Delaney would level the score just before the hour mark. From there, neither side could find the all-important breakthrough, and it was another successful night in Berlin for Bremen.

Werder Bremen Team News

Werder Bremen will come into this match with a largely full squad, but center back Niklas Moisander remains out alongside attacking midfielder Zlatko Junuzovic, and right winger Justin Eilers.

Schalke 04 Preview

Schalke began their season with what looked to be a very impressive 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga, then inexplicably went to newly promoted Hannover and laid an egg in a 1-0 defeat. They didn't allow that to impede their progress on Sunday, though, as they brushed aside Stuttgart 3-1 at home. It didn't go exactly the way you might assume that it did given the score, as the away side controlled possession for a large chunk of the match. However, Schalke had scored goals in the 4th minute and directly after half time that dictated the play in that regard. Their fourth minute goal came from the spot as Nabil Bentaleb scored a penalty. From there, they were pegged back by Chadrac Akolo's 40th minute goal. Schalke responded quickly after the break with two goals in two minutes as Naldo scored in the 47th minute, and they immediately grabbed another from Guido Burgstaller to give them all three points.

Schalke 04 Team News

Schalke will be unable to use center forward Breel Embolo and right midfielder Alessandro Schopf due to injuries. After his goal from the bench last weekend, look for Guido Burgstaller to be reinstalled into the starting XI.
