• This fixture ended in a 5-0 win for Dortmund last season. Until Bremen's 7-0 loss to Bayern on matchday 15 this season, it was their biggest ever Bundesliga home defeat.
  • Dortmund have won each of their last five meetings with Bremen, scoring 11 and conceding once. On top of that, BVB have lost just one of their last 11 games against Werder (W8, D2).
  • Overall, however, against no other side have Dortmund lost more top-flight games than they have against Bremen (39 defeats in 91 meetings).
  • Bremen have kept a clean sheet in their last two home games. They last kept more consecutive clean sheets at home in the autumn of 2009 (a run of four games).
  • Dortmund haven't kept a clean sheet in their last 10 Bundesliga games, something that has never happened in the Klopp era and last happened in 2004. Furthermore, BVB have only kept one clean sheet in their last 15 competitive matches.
  • Werder have the lowest average possession in the league (42.2%). Since Opta started collecting detailed statistics in 2004/05, Werder have always finished a season with more than 50% possession on average.
  • BVB have scored an impressive 75 goals in their last 30 Bundesliga away games, an average of 2.5 goals per away match, which is more than any other top-flight team in that time.
  • Dortmund have allowed around half as many shots (173, second in the league behind Bayern) as Bremen (336, a league high).
  • BVB have collected a league low of just 24 bookings, while Bremen have been awarded the second-most yellow cards (42) after Hannover (45).
  • Between them, Marco Reus, Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been involved in 32 of Dortmund's 42 goals this season (76%).
  • Despite being sent off for two bookable offences in Augsburg, Bremen's Santiago Garcia will be absent for two matches – his excessive display of dissent towards the referee added a game onto his suspension.
