Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Bayern Munich will be looking to remain top of the Bundesliga table when they host Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon.
Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen: Predictions
Defending Bundesliga champions Bayern, who have won the past eight league titles, are currently top of the table after seven games, two points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig.
Hansi Flick’s side have dropped points on just one occasion so far, losing 4-1 to Hoffenheim in their second game, before bouncing back to win five consecutive matches.
Their opponents this weekend, Werder Bremen, will also be enjoying their start to the season, currently sitting ninth in a comfortable position. Bremen are the only club in history to have taken part in more Bundesliga seasons than Bayern, but the came so close to relegation last season, having to save their spot through the playoff.
Bremen have won just two of their opening seven games, but four draws and one defeat is certainly an improvement on the previous campaign.

Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen: Match Stats
Although Bremen have improved this season, Bayern remain the team to beat and are ever the impressive juggernaut at the top of Germany. Bayern’s defeat to Hoffenheim was the only time they have failed to win in their past 34 competitive games, winning 10 in a row. However, Bayern’s defence has proven shaky.
With the form he is in, it’s hard not to predict Robert Lewandowski getting involved in the goals, and that is particularly the case when he plays Bremen. In his last 16 competitive games against Bremen, Lewandowski has scored 19 goals, and has 11 in seven league matches so far this season.
