Today, Santa Claus decided Eintracht Frankfurt were naughty this season and only gave them a point against FC Augsburg, which means Werder Bremen are guaranteed at least a 14th place position heading into the winter break.
Last week, that naughty team from Frankfurt shocked Bayer Leverkusen at BayArena, but Werder are the hosts tomorrow and Leverkusen have won their last four away matches. However, Bayer Leverkusen have never won more than four consecutive road matches since their promotion to Bundesliga in 1979. Good news for Werder, right? Well, let's not get too crazy. If Bayer earns all three points against Werder tomorrow, they will surpass their best Bundesliga first half ever. Let's not let that happen!
Robin Dutt said, "We want to combine effectiveness with passion. Eintracht Frankfurt showed last week how you can successfully play a match against Leverkusen." Now let's hope the players understand what combining effectiveness with passion means.
