During the winter break, Werder played three friendly matches - they recorded a draw against Karlsruher and Club Brugge, while they were defeated against Braunschweig. Although they have a four-game-long undefeated series in Bundesliga, it doesn't seem that Werder is powerful enough to pose a threat to Borussia Dortmund at the moment. Three of their players they use in a squad rotation system got injured in December: Clemens Fritz, Izet Hajrovic and Florian Grillitsch.
Borussia Dortmund played three friendly matches during the winter break and won all of them. They defeated PSV by 4:1, Standard Liege by 3:0 and Paderborn by 6:1. They had some setbacks during November and December and it is very important for them to start 2017 in a winning way. Borussia is currently trailing by only three points behind third placed Hertha and everything except a victory against Werder would be a disaster for them. Several players that had an important role in the team in the past are currently injured: Neven Subotic, Roman Burki, Nuri Sahin, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Raphael Guerreiro, while Marco Reus is suspended.
If we look at their form and past meetings, Borussia Dortmund is the absolute favorite to win this match. We also expect many goals here.
