Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Title holders Bayern Munich kick off the new Bundesliga campaign with a game against Werder Bremen. The mighty Bavarians are eager to defend their trophy, but they need to take every single match very seriously if they are to retain the Bundesliga title. Mats Hummels and Renato Sanches joined the club in the summer transfer window, with Italian tactician Carlo Ancelotti taking over the reins. Bayern Munich did well to win the German Super Cup earlier in August and, as expected, they hammered Carl Zeiss Jena in the German Cup on Friday. The reigning champions welcome Werder Bremen at their Allianz Arena at the start of the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign and we predict that the mighty Bavarians are going to emerge triumphant in their opener. Viktor Skripnik’s men suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Lotte in the German Cup at the weekend and they are unlikely to spoil Bayern’s party at Allianz Arena.
