Bayern Munich are set to get their hands on an eighth consecutive and 30th overall Meisterschale on Tuesday night as they head north almost the full length of Germany to Bremen, to take on a Werder side who still have plenty to play for themselves going into the final three games.
Die Werderaner picked up an eye-catching and potentially pivotal 1-5 victory away at bottom of the table Paderborn over the weekend, but they still sit in relegation zone on 28 points coming into this match. Now however, they’re behind Fortuna Dusseldorf in the play-off spot on goal difference alone and only three points away from catching Mainz and escaping the drop zone altogether.
With three wins in their last six games, and huge matches against Mainz and Köln still to come, Florian Kohfeldt’s men still have every chance of escaping the drop. Unfortunately for them however, they could lose ground on Tuesday night as nobody expects them to take anything from this match against Bayern Munich.
Die Roten had been struggling for consistency in the early stages of the season and it did appear that their run of winning the German title could come to an end this season. However, the decision to replace Niko Kovacs with Hansi Flick proved to be inspired as the Bavarians have now gone 18 games unbeaten in all competitions.
Even more impressively, 17 of those 18 matches have yielded victories and now Bayern are just one more win away from another league title – with a DFB-Pokal final and perhaps even a tilt at another Champions League trophy still to come.

Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Predictions
Squawka Stat: Manuel Neuer has kept the highest amount of clean sheets in the Bundesliga this season with 13.
Werder Bremen may have smashed in five goals in an unexpectedly dominant win over bottom of the table Paderborn over the weekend, but we’re treating that victory as an anomaly against very poor opposition, as they failed to score in back-to-back home defeats prior to that win and they’ve failed to score in 35% of their Bundesliga games this term – the joint-second highest percentage in the division.
Now, they welcome a Bayern Munich outfit that will be expecting to wrap up the title with a win. Die Roten have gone 18 games unbeaten in all competitions, winning 17 of those 18, and keeping clean sheets in no fewer than 10 of those games.
Although Hansi Flick’s men have conceded in each of their last three games, they still have the meanest defence in the Bundesliga and coming up against one of the weakest attacks you have to expect the visitors to pick up all three points without conceding a goal this time around.
The Bavarians have been in stellar form since the return of the German top-flight and can scoop the Meisterschale if they secure maximum points against relegation-threatened Werder.
That prospect will be augmented by the return of Robert Lewandowski, who was suspended for the Borussia Monchengladbach win on Saturday, but their hosts will not be resting on their laurels when they welcome the champions-elect to the Weserstadion.
The River Islanders currently sit in the relegation zone but are level on points with Fortuna Desseldorf, who occupy the relegation play-off spot, and three points from absolute safety. This encounter has all the makings of a Bundesliga classic.
Squawka Stat: Thomas Müller leads the Bundesliga assists chart with 20 assists in the league so far this season.
We’re almost getting tired of backing Thomas Müller to get an assist – but as long as he continues to oblige and pick up winners, we’ll carry on backing him!
The German midfielder leads the Bundesliga assists charts still, despite intense pressure from Jadon Sancho, and he also ranks first in the division in metrics such as Big Chances Created, Expected Assists, Chances Created on Target, showing just how adept he is at supplying the likes of Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski in this Bayern team.
After laying on the opener for Ivan Perišić in the DFK-Pokal semi-final victory over Frankfurt last, Müller now has five assists in his last five games in all competitions. What’s more, he’ll be feeling fresh for this game, having missed out on the weekend win over Borussia Mönchengladbach through suspension after picking up five yellow cards.
