Our football match prediction:
Bayern Munich were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Freiburg at the weekend, but Robert Lewandowski had something else on his mind. The Polish attacker once again scored the winner for the Bavarians, this time out in the dying seconds of the match. Carlo Ancelotti’s troops are on a six-match winning run in the league ahead of the trip to Bremen and the title holders aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Bayern Munich are only three points clear of second-placed Leipzig in the Bundesliga standings and there is every chance Carlo Ancelotti will field the best possible side against Werder Bremen. Die Werderaner suit the reigning champions and we predict that the visitors will record their 15th consecutive win over the Weserstadion outfit in all competitions. Werder Bremen suffered a 2-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund in their first game in 2017 and they are unlikely to claim a major scalp in Saturday's football match.
Highlighted Player (Zlatko Junuzovic):
Born in Serbia on 26 September 1987, Zlatko Junuzovic moved to Austria at the age of five and he eventually decided to represent his adopted country at international level. The central midfielder made a name for himself playing for Grazer AK, Austria Karnten and Austria Wien, but it was a move to Werder Bremen that earned him worldwide recognition. Ever since 2012, Junuzovic has been one of Bundesliga’s leading midfielders, scoring a number of goals from set pieces and producing countless assists for his teammates, and it is a real wonder how he hasn’t joined a bigger club. Capable of operating as a defensive midfielder, but much more dangerous as an attacking midfielder, Junuzovic has been a key player for Austria for several years now and he was in fine form as Das Team secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals. The highly rated midfielder has been a member of the national team for over ten years and chances are he will not be retiring any time soon.
Highlighted Team (Bayern Munich):
Over the years Bayern Munich have established themselves as one of the most successful European clubs. The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times. The German giants clinched the Intercontinental Cup in 1976 and 2001, while lifting the FIFA Club World Cup trophy in 2013. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players and their leader was Franz John. The Bavarians host their rivals at Allianz Arena (75,000), the stadium that was built in 2005. Fellow Bavarian sides TSV 1860 Munchen 1860 and Nurnberg are regarded as Bayern Munich’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern is big as well. The likes of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller and Giovane Elber are famous footballers who played for Bayern Munich in the past.
