Our forecast for this Bundesliga game:
Player in focus (Granit Xhaka):
Granit Xhaka is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most talented central midfielders at the moment and he is on the radar of quite a few high-profile sides. Just two seasons at FC Basel proved enough to attract interest from Borussia M’gladbach, who secured his signature in the summer of 2012.
Initially, the Swiss player struggled at the beginning of his time in Germany, leading many experts to question his abilities. However, he was able to turn things around and prove that he is more than capable of competing at the top level. Playing as a deep-lying playmaker, Xhaka caught the attention of both fans and experts with his impressive displays in the Bundesliga and European tournaments, and he even scored some crucial goals along the way.
Even though he is young, this football player is highly respected and has been an important part of the Switzerland national team for a while. He has scored 6 goals in his first 40 games, showing that he is a strong leader for the Rossocrociati. His performance in the 2014 World Cup, where he scored one goal in four games, is just the beginning of what will likely be many more major tournaments for him.

Werder Bremen is a German soccer team based in the city of Bremen. In addition to soccer, the team also competes in other divisions.
