Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Two sides with a bit of a relationship will meet on Saturday as Werder Bremen try to reverse the recent trend of dominance shown by Bayern in this tie. Werder will look for their first points of the new season after they fell away to Hoffenheim thanks to a late goal conceded. Bayern had no such issues, winning at home to get the season kicked off on Friday. In the end it was 3-1, but they rarely looked test throughout. Niklas Sule quickly opened his account on nine minutes, before fellow new signing Corentin Tolisso scored nine minutes later. Robert Lewandowski added a penalty eight minutes after the break to give them a firm lead that would be reduced by just one in the end. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bayern have won each of the last 15 meetings with Werder Bremen, and they haven't lost to them since way back in 2008. In five of the last six matches, they have kept a clean sheet as well. Bayern aren't quite at full strength yet, but they are inching closer. And that is only going to make matters more difficult for Werder Bremen and the rest of the league. With Neuer in there, your chances of scoring drastically go down, and they have a great passer back in the starting XI as well.

Bayern to win and keep a clean sheet can bring you 6/5 odds if correct.

A first half goal for Robert Lewandowski, or a second half- your choice, can bring you 2/1 odds.

Werder Bremen Preview

Werder Bremen's season began last week with a 1-0 loss in Hoffenheim. That's not a horrible result for them, given that they are currently in a Champions League clash with Liverpool. For that very same reason, though, Bremen might just have thought they could pip something from them. Not having Serge Gnabry any longer certainly hurts them, but this looks to be a solid team with a decent foundation that should be quite safe in the league. However, they will most likely have to wait another week before they can claim any points as they just aren't strong enough to deal with this Bayern side.

Werder Bremen Team News

Right winger Justin Eilers, center back Niklas Moisander, attacking midfielder Zlatko Junuzovic, and goalkeeper Michael Zetterer will each be missing for this match with the champions.

Bayern Munich Preview

Bayern Munich helped kick off the Bundesliga season last Friday, and they did so with an easy victory at home over Bayer Leverkusen. They had already scored twice in the first 20 minutes, and they showed that they know how to scout players better than just about any club in the world. Former Hoffenheim duo Rudy and Sule combined for the first goal, while Tolisso also scored his debut goal. They did have a blight in conceding once, but they might put that day on opening day. With Neuer returning to the lineup, Bayern will have even more of an aura of invincibility to them.

Bayern Munich Team News

On the injured list are defender Felix Gotze, attacking midfielder James, center back Jerome Boateng, and left back Juan Bernat. Young center back Marco Friedl has taken ill, while center back Mats Hummels also is touch-and-go after leaving last week's match early. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is set to finally return, having been held out unexpectedly last weekend.
