Ingolstadt weak at home: The promoted side haven’t enjoyed the best of starts to the season, picking up just four points from their first five games. They only managed their first win of the campaign last time out, beating SV Sandhausen 2-0. FCI have collected just a point from their first two home matches of 2021/22, their worst return since 2017/18 (0 points back then).
Strong at the back, generally improved: Werder have kept a clean sheet in their last two matches, as well as in the friendly during the international break against Heracles Almelo. The 3-0 win over Hansa Rostock last time out in the league was SVW’s first victory in Bremen since 26th February 2021. Another positive is Markus Anfang’s record against Ingolstadt. He has picked up three wins and a draw from four meetings, and he averages more points per game against FCI than versus any other current second-division side.
