Bayer Leverkusen travel to the Weserstadion in the Bundesliga on Monday evening to face a Werder Bremen side in desperate need of a victory.

The hosts have not won a game since mid-January and currently sit eight points off automatic safety with just 10 matches to play.

Leverkusen for their part had won seven of their previous nine matches before the league was suspended and Peter Bosz's side are clear favourites to restart their campaign with another success.

Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Latest Odds

The visitors are offered at 8/11 (1.72) with bet365 and only leaders Bayern Munich have won more away matches than Leverkusen this term.

Bremen, meanwhile, can be backed at 9/2 (4.50) to record what would only be their second home win of the season.

These two sides played out a 2-2 stalemate when they met back in October and another draw is priced at 3/1 (4.00)

Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Latest Team News

Bremen will be missing a number of players including Dutch international midfielder Davy Klaasen, who is suspended, and veteran striker Claudio Pizarro, who has a thigh injury.

Leverkusen have few injury concerns, although top scorer Kevin Volland is unlikely to be able to add to his tally of nine goals this season as he has an ankle problem.

Werder Bremen vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview

No team in the German top flight has scored fewer goals than Florian Kohfeldt's side with Bremen managing just 27 strikes in 24 games.

The 2004 Bundesliga champions have failed to score in eight league matches this term including in three of their last four clashes.

With joint top-scorer Klaasen missing, the hosts are likely to have problems finding the back of the net once more and in Leverkusen they face a team with the third best defensive record in the division.

The BayArena outfit have kept clean sheets in eight league matches and will be confident of another shut-out against struggling opposition.

The visitors can be backed at 13/8 (2.62) to keep a clean sheet and at 21/10 (3.10) to win to nil, both of which look like strong options for this Monday night clash.
