VISITORS AIMING FOR FIRST

Augsburg have yet to keep a clean sheet in a Bundesliga game this season. The Bavarians are not far away now from achieving what would be a big first for Enrico Maaßen's men.

DOUBLE CHANCE WERDER

Niklas Schmidt hits a reflex shot at the target but Gikiewicz gets down brilliantly to block. Füllkrug is next up with an arcing shot that bends away from the far post and wide.

AUGSBURG IN FRONT

They've been threatening this and now Augsburg hit the front. Berisha beats the offside trap wide on the right and lashes an across the face of goal cross-shot which Demirovic gobbles up with a close-rage finish. The goal survives a VAR check and on we go ...

BREMEN CHANCE

Ducksh heads a Füllkrug cross at the target and Gikiewicz palms over. The resulting corner comes to nothing.

ONE MORE FOR THE KEEPER

Niederlechner hooks a shot into the arms of Michael Zetterer. That's one more save chalked up to the Bundesliga debutant, albeit an easy one.

ENGROSSING BATTLE

Werder have the edge in terms of possession, Die Grün-Weißen with 57 per cent of the ball until now. Augsburg do look a threat going forward, however, which gives this fascinating game a real air of unpredictability.

AUGSBURG COME AGAIN

A wonderful counter-thrust by Augsburg ends with the ball at Berisha's feet. The visiting attacker is inches offside.

NIEDERLECHNER THREATENS

Niederlechner muscles past Veljkovic and gets in a stab at goal. Zetterer saves with an outstretched leg. Looks like Niederlechner was just offside in the build up to that move.

Berisha shapes to shoot and sends an effort into Row Z. Not what the Augsburg No. 11 wanted there.

IMPRESSIVE DEBUT

Niederlechner pressures Zetterer now as the sub 'keeper is tested by the visitors. The custodian then races off his line and applies a diving header to deny Hahn.

ZETTERER SAVE

Elvis Rexhbecaj fancies a pop at the target and his shot flies up and into the grateful hands of debutant Zetterer. The 27-year-old will have been pleased with that to settled the nerves.

STAGE LACKS CONTROL

Füllkrug's tidy back heel for Jens Stage almost produces the opening the home side have been pushing for. Stage just fails to control at the crucial moment and the chance is gone.

AUGSBURG'S CAMPAIGN AT A GLANCE

Augsburg's find themselves struggling near the foot of the table after a difficult start to the campaign so far. They are the joint lowest scorers in the league and will be looking to change that immediately with their visit to Bremen's Weserstadion.

BREMEN'S SEASON SO FAR

Werder Bremen have scored two or more goals in every match of the Bundesliga this season. Niclas Füllkrug sits atop the Bundesliga scoring charts with Union's Sheraldo Becker and will be looking to take the lead outright against Augsburg. A win here will see Bremen rise to fifth in the Bundesliga - which would further exemplify their remarkable return to the top tier this season.

WELCOME!

Matchday 6 is ready to burst into action with a noisy atmosphere expected at Werder Bremen's Weserstadion. Augsburg visit the free-scoring hosts, seeking a second win of the season to try and add some distance from the relegation zone before the weekend's action.
