Lars Bender is fully fit again and challenges Charles Aránguiz for his spot in central midfield. Admir Mehmedi is an option to start on the right wing or partner Chicharito up front. Otherwise, manager Roger Schmidt could face an unchanged team for Leverkusen.

Felix Wiedwald will replace the injured Jaroslav Drobny in goal for Werder Bremen. Santiago García could return from injury to challenge Robert Bauer for the spot at left-back.

Bremen picked up four points from three matches under interim manager Alexander Nouri, who has been promoted to the permanent job now. The team looks better organised and has shown strong attacking potential, despite the absences of Max Kruse and Claudio Pizarro due to injury.

Leverkusen are full of confidence after a 2-0 win against Dortmund before the international break. They recovered from a poor spell to start their season and have found more balance in midfield now.

Expect this to be an open game with several chances at both ends of the pitch.
