Best Odds: 19/20

Bookmaker: Unibet

Looking to extend on their recent purple patch on Tuesday night, Bayern Munich will welcome Werder Bremen to the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich

Starting with the hosts, while Bayern Munich might have opened the 2022/23 campaign showing some extended inconsistencies, Julian Nagelsmann’s side appear to have put those issues behind them. Last seen over the weekend picking up an action-packed 3-2 victory away at Hertha Berlin, the mood around the Allianz Arena should be at a real high. Now finding a route back to the top of the Bundesliga table, the German giants will be confident of laying down another marker on Tuesday night. Gaining a string of plaudits while on European duties and breezing their way to the knockout stage of this season’s Champions League, Bayern have won each of their previous eight matchups across all formats. Likewise, unbeaten since way back on September 17th, the midweek hosts have gained a fearsome reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third. In fact, including an eye-catching 3-0 romp away at Barcelona last month, it should be highlighted that Nagelsmann’s men have bagged 30 goals on their eight-match winning run.

Team News

In what could be a real blow for both Bayern Munich and Canada, it appears that Alphonso Davies will miss out after suffering a hamstring injury.

All recently returning from their own injury issues, the trio of Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane should once again feature on Tuesday night.

Werder Bremen

As for the visitors, although Werder Bremen might have endured a worrying blip when closing October, the Greens have managed to find a much-welcomed boost. Although Ole Werner’s men might have only secured their Bundesliga return last season, the River Islanders have gained plenty of praise from across Germany. Last seen over the weekend picking up a 2-1 victory at home against Schalke, Tuesday’s guests have now claimed back-to-back top-flight wins. Likewise, opening the midweek fixtures sat seventh in the table and with some in their camp dreaming of a shock European finish, Bremen have lost just a pair of their previous seven Bundesliga matchups. However, facing what will be a huge test at the Allianz Arena here, Werner’s men should be worried by their extended issues against the defending champions. Along with a 3-1 loss when they last faced off against Bayern back in March 2021, Bremen have failed to win any of their last 31 straight meetings.

Team News

Werder Bremen have confirmed that they will be without the trio of Lee Buchanan, Felix Agu, Dudu and Jean-Manuel Mbom on Tuesday night.

However, once again finding the net against Schalke last weekend and with 10 strikes from his opening 13 Bundesliga appearances, Niclas Fullkrug will spearhead Werner’s charge here.

Key Factors to Consider

    • When the two sides last faced off at the Weserstadion back in March 2021, Bayern Munich picked up a 3-1 victory.
    • In fact, Bayern are unbeaten in each of their last 31 straight meetings against Bremen across all formats – a run that stems all the way back to 2008.
    • Likewise, the defending German champions have scored a staggering 30 goals on their eight-match winning run.
    • However, Werder Bremen have lost just a pair of their previous seven Bundesliga matchups.
    • The River Islanders have seen four of their last six Bundesliga away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net.

    Conclusion

    While Werder Bremen might have gained plenty of praise since making their Bundesliga return over the summer, there is no doubt that Tuesday’s guests face a huge task here. Watching Bayern only continue on a rampant purple patch over recent months, the defending German champions will be looking to lay down another marker here. Bagging a stunning 30 strikes on their eight-match winning run across all formats, Nagelsmann’s men should also be excited by a stellar record against the midweek guests. Including a 3-1 victory when they made the trip to the Weserstadion back in March 2021, Bayern are unbeaten in each of their last 31 straight showdowns against the River Islanders.
