Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen meet in Round 8 of the Bundesliga championship. The reigning UEFA Champions League champions come into this event with high morale, while on the other side, Werder is in a crisis and a long time without a win. The River Islanders have a nasty experience with Bayern in the past few years, losing game after game, some of them pretty convincingly. The match starts at 3:30 PM local time or 9:30 AM ET.
Bayern Munich (-1000) has 10 straight wins, with the only loss in this campaign coming from Hoffenheim early on. After that slip, Hansi Flick tightened up his crew, who began punishing all the rivals that stood in its way.
In just two of the last ten events, Bayern couldn’t score more than 2 goals, and each one ended with over 2.5 goals. However, if we examine only the home matches, we might see their ruthless power. Three of them ended with Bayern netting four goals at least and a total goal difference of 13-3.
The upcoming clash against Werder will be the first one since October 25 that takes place at Allianz Arena, and that will motivate the hosts to come out and put up a good performance. Particularly as they know that matches following the international break could be very tricky.
Werder Bremen (+2200) had a nice run until the middle of October. Ever since, the boys in green couldn’t win a match, posting four draws in a row. Now, some are saying this isn’t bad, but you need to know that they played against Koln at home, failing to win. If you want to reach the international stage, which is Werder’s goal this year, this is a must.
One fun fact for all of you. These four draws all came after the same result, 1-1.
The River Islanders played three events on the road, being poor Schalke, 1-3, and then picking a point in Freiburg and Frankfurt against Eintracht. When we add that they defeated Jena in DFB Pokal, 0-2, it increases the number of road games without a defeat up to four.
Alphonso Davies is definitely out due to an ankle injury, and Joshua Kimmich has to skip the game because of a knee injury. Tolisso, too won’t be available against Werder.
The guests are without Niclas Fullkrug, Davie Selke, and Ole Kauper.
Head to Head Matches
The last time Werder lost was in 2008, and the last time Bayern hasn’t won was in 2010, and since that, 23 games have passed, all ending with the Bavarians’ victory. We can say without any hesitation that playing against Bayern is a nightmare for the team from Bremen.
Last season’s match at Allianz finished with 6-1 for the hosts.
Bayern to score over 1.5 goals in the first 45 minutes is currently set at -115. The way they play, this shouldn’t be a big problem, especially if they score in the opening 20 minutes. For all those who like to take on some risk, try with over 2.5 goals in the first halftime, with the odds at +185. Bayern’s games at home are often efficient with plenty of scores before the break.
