Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
The ground at Weserstadion will shake when Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich lock horns in the Bundesliga opener. Bayern Munich begin their title defence in Bremen and, no doubt, they are desperate to make amends for the German Super Cup defeat (0-3) to Leipzig. A man to watch in the away team will be big-money signing Harry Kane, while all Raphael Guerreiro, Eric Choupo-Moting, Thomas Muller, Gabriel Marusic, and Manuel Neuer are out of contention with injuries.
Die Werderaner, on the other hand, are on a poor winless run in meetings with Bayern Munich, with the team eyeing their first triumph over FCB since September 2008. In their last encounter at the venue the Bavarians emerged triumphant and given Kane’s arrival to the club, away triumph should be considered. Anthony Jung is a major doubt, while both Dawid Kownacki and Naby Keita are injured for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Harry Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year.
The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Tottenham Hotspur mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.

Werder Bremen is a German football club from the German city Bremen which holds different divisions next to football. Werder Bremen is playing in the Bundesliga since the start of it.
