Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munich will be aiming to build on a 3-2 win over Hertha when they take on Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga round 14. The Bavarians want to retain top position in the standings, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against die Werderaner. Cameroon centre-forward Erix Maxim Choupo-Moting should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring a brace in the last league match, while all Alphonso Davies, Matthijs de Ligt, Thomas Muller, and Bouna Sarr miss out with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Hertha and Schalke. Werder Bremen, though, were beaten by Bayern Munich in nine of their last ten meetings at Allianz Arena, and given FCB’s fine form, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. All Felix Agu, Lee Buchanan, and Jean-Manuel Mbom continue to miss out for the away team.
