Werder’s recent matches in the German top flight have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in 14 of their previous 17 league matches.

The visitor's poor form has not only started this season, but they have now failed to win in six Bundesliga games, having suffered four defeats in the poor run.

The Billy Goats' recent away matches in the German top flight have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last three league games on their travels.What am I backing?
Neither team has looked great in the Bundesliga this season. I can’t see there being much between the pair in this clash, so with that in mind, I am backing the draw.
