Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munich will be aiming to retain top position in the Bundesliga standings when they take on Werder Bremen at Weserstadion on Saturday. The Bavarians survived rock-bottom Hertha Berlin at the weekend, but they face yet another must-win situation against die Werderaner. New boss Thomas Tuchel has a number of injury worries, with all Neuer, Hernandez, Choupo-Moting, Davies, Upamecano, and Muller missing out, while Leon Goretzka is banned.
The hosts, on the other hand, are eager to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Schalke. Considering that Werder Bremen are tough to beat at home, we predict that they are going to hold the out-of-form league leaders to a draw. As for the visiting team, all Niklas Stark, Niclas Fullkrug, and Felix Agu are out of contention through injuries. In the first half of the season Bayern Munich crushed Werder Bremen 6-1, but a close encounter is on the cards this time out.
