Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 20 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Defending champions will face a serious test on Saturday afternoon against top-half and in-form Werder Bremen side in what is expected to be the most interesting fixture of the Matchday in Bundesliga.
Hosts stole the pole position from Borussia Dortmund at the top of the standings thanks to a marvellous display in a 5-0 thumping of main rivals for the title two weeks ago.
The Bavarians backed it up with another stellar attacking performance six days ago when they stormed past Fortuna Dusseldorf 1-4 away at Merkur Spiel-Arena.
The team led by Niko Kovac thus notched four or more goals on four occasions in last five matches in all competitions. They scored as many as 14 goals in last three wins (almost five per game) and will head into this tie against Die Werderaner in the highest of spirits.
Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
The Bavarians were the dominant force in the history of this march-up.
They won 37, drew 11 and lost just 7 of 55 home encounters with Werder Bremen.
Interestingly, Bayern Munich won each of last 18 head to head clashes against Die Werderaner netting at least two goals in each of past seven wins along the way.
Both teams were on the scoresheet in three of last four H2H matches.
Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Bremen had a modest campaign in the first half of the season, but they are flying high at the start of 2019. Die Werderaner are yet to suffer a defeat after the winter break, which makes it a 14-game unbeaten thread for Florian Kohfeldt and his men.
Visitors sit seventh in the league ladder and have rights to hope for Europa League football next term. Bremen won four and drew one of last five matches in all competitions. They scored at least a goal in each of 14 outings this year and we expect them to find the back of the net at Allianz Arena as well.
Looking at both form and head to head tradition, we have to go for the home win & BTTS as the main betting option at the odds of 2.30.
