Werder Bremen's poor start to the season is certainly reflected in their position on the table. With Schalke on a promising run at the moment, a change in fortune does not look to be on the cards for the hosts this weekend either.

Werder Bremen vs Schalke Prediction
Werder Bremen's attempts to climb up the ladder before the international break were rendered futile by Borussia Monchengladbach, who pulled off a comfortable 3-1 victory over them on the road. With just two measly wins to boast of, the hosts are now just two points shy of falling into the relegation zone.
The hosts have also had a taste of success just once on home soil this season, that too against the hapless Augsburg.
On the other hand, Schalke are unbeaten in their past four games in all competitions. The away side's last clash at home saw them feature alongside Dusseldorf in a six-goal thriller, with both teams scoring three goals apiece. Their previous trip on the road, however, witnessed them secure all three points against Augsburg with a 3-1 scorecard.
Furthermore, the guests have stumbled just once in their outings so far. It is also worth mentioning that Werder Bremen have secured the bragging rights just twice in their previous ten clashes with this foe here. As such, Schalke are sizing up to be the favorites to come out on top this weekend.
Be that as it may, Werder Bremen have been forcing their opponents to share the spoils with them in their last two games here in a running. Hence the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Schalke.
Additionally, the visitors have just one clean sheet from their outings up till now and are without one in their last five. Taking into account that there have also been goals down either end in their previous two h2h clashes, count on both teams to have their names on the scoresheet this Saturday.
