Bayer Leverkusen is ranked 10th in the Bundesliga (30 points), with a total of 9 wins, 3 draws and 11 losses and a score difference of -2 (36:38).
They have been quite inconsistent in their results all over the season and are just getting out of a terrific loss vs Dortmund. Because of their poor results they are on the verge of changing their coach.
Werder Bremen is ranked 14th with 25 points, their have a total of 7 wins, 4 draws and 1 2 losses and a goal difference of -13 (30:43). They have been for a long time in the relegation zone but their recent form is very good.
The bookmakers give Leverkusen as the favourite to win the match, probably based on the overall results above. That said, Leverkusen is under pressure due to the coach change, and their poor performance of late in front of their fans (they have won only 3 of the last 9 home matches) increases the pressure further.
Werder Bremen away record is quite good instead: they have lost only once in their last 6 matches, and even this single loss has come by only one goal.
I think that Werder Bremen has all the chance to surprise the bookmakers today, so I'll go for an +1 asian handicap, which as said above, has been covered by the away team in all the previou 6 away matches.
