Werder Bremen

Werder Bremen is the only Bundesliga side to not win a game away from home this season. Ole Werner will certainly be happy to match the point taken last weekend against Bochum when he takes his side into the Allianz Arena.

Munich-born Michael Zetterer should continue to get the nod in goal for Bremen with a back three in front of him. Niklas Stark should start on the right side of the back three, opposite Anthony Jung. Centrally, former Bayern Munich academy product Marco Friedl will lead the back three.

Another former Bayern Munich man, Mitchell Weiser, will be tasked with limiting Alphonso Davies on Bremen's right, with Felix Agu starting on the left. Centrally with Leonardo Bittencourt out due to suspension, look for a midfield three of the Danish born Jens Stage, Senne Lynen, and the more attacking Romano Schmid.

I'm going off the expectation that Werner will have his side set up in a 3-5-2. With that in mind, I see the Columbian international Rafael Borre getting the start-up top with Justin Njinmah.

Werder Bremen Predicted Starting XI


Score Prediction

Bayern Munich 4-1 Werder Bremen (Harry Kane x2; Sane)

Bayern Munich will make sure Werder Bremen's away winless streak continues by clinching a convincing victory. The hosts will breach Bremen's low block early with the help of their inform forwards. Bremen will score a consolation goal because it always seems Bayern falls asleep at some point in the game.
