Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Werder Bremen’s relegation battle takes a tough turn as they host Bayern Munich at the Weserstadion on Tuesday. FC Bayern can win their eight straight Bundesliga title with a win and they are unlikely to slip up.
Werder Bremen have been fighting hard since the restart but remain in the relegation zone. Florian Kohfeldt’s side won 1-0 at Freiburg, earned a 0-0 home draw against Borussia Monchengladbach before a 1-0 win at Schalke. Their poor home form returned with a 3-0 defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt and 1-0 defeat against Wolfsburg. Werder Bremen’s last match was a 5-1 win at rock bottom Paderborn. Milot Rashica saw an early penalty saved but Davy Klaassen (2), Yuya Osako, Maximilian Eggestein and Niclas Füllkrug were all on target. Werder Bremen’s home form in the Bundesliga has been a disaster this season, losing nine of their last 10 home matches and by 2+ goals in six of their last eight at home. They failed to score in eight of their last nine Bundesliga matches at the Weserstadion. Defender Ömer Toprak, midfielders Kevin Möhwald and Nuri Sahin are injured alongside striker Claudio Pizarro.
Bayern Munich are in fantastic form after winning their last 13 matches in all competitions. The Bavarians are on the brink of an eighth straight Bundesliga title if they can win in Bremen. Hansi Flick’s side won 1-0 at Borussia Dortmund before crushing Fortuna Dusseldorf 5-0 at home. FC Bayern won 4-2 at Bayer Leverkusen before a hard fought 2-1 home win against Eintracht Frankfurt to reach the German Cup final. Bayern Munich’s last match was a 2-1 home win against Borussia Monchengladbach. Joshua Zirkzee opened the scoring and Leon Goretzka scored a late winner. Central defender Niklas Süle remains injured alongside midfielders Philippe Coutinho, Corentin Tolisso and Thiago. Attackers Thomas Müller and Robert Lewandowski are available after suspension.
Werder Bremen have a terrible recent record against Bayern Munich, losing their last 21 matches against the German powerhouse. Their last win against FC Bayern came in 2008.
