The German Bundesliga will close out its first weekend of matches back from the pandemic with a match on Monday. Werder Bremen will be hosting Bayer Leverkusen. The game will be televised on Fox Sports 2 and Fox Sports Deportes at 2:30 PM EST.
Werder Bremen was once a powerhouse a few years ago. Now, they are mired in the relegation zone in 17th place. However, a win will only put them two points behind Fortuna Dusseldorf, which holds the relegation playoff spot at 16th. Their place in the standings shows how much the Bundesliga has improved over the years.
Bayer Leverkusen sits in fifth place. However, a win could put them one point out of fourth place. The top four teams in the Bundesliga qualify for the Champions League next season. We will find out if this team wants to go to the Champions League again or if they want to settle for the Europa League.
