Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich: Predictions
This is the 110th Bundesliga meeting between these two historic clubs, with Bayern currently enjoying a 28-game unbeaten run against Werder, including a competition record 22-game winning streak which was only ended by a 1-1 draw in their last clash.
Bayern head into the weekend two points clear of RB Leipzig at the top of the table and high confidence after a 4-2 comeback win over rivals Borussia Dortmund. However, Hansi Flick’s men have been anything but convincing defensively this season and must be at their best against a steadily improving Werder Bremen team.
Florian Kohfeldt’s side have taken seven points from their last three games, while they’ve lost just once in their last eight across all competitions in a run that has seen them climb to 12th in the Bundesliga table and advance to the DFB-Pokal quarter-finals.
