As the Bundesliga season kicks off, all eyes are on Bayern Munich, the reigning champions seeking their 12th consecutive league title. Their first challenge comes against Werder Bremen, who play host to the perennial champions in what promises to be an exciting clash. Following a surprising defeat in the DFL-Supercup, Bayern Munich has a point to prove at the Weserstadion. This venue has been a fortress for Bayern, where they have secured victory in their last 14 visits. On the other hand, Werder Bremen struggled on home turf last season, accumulating the fewest home points in the league.

Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Match Preview

After a pre-season filled with impressive wins, including a 27-0 victory and international trips, Bayern Munich returned to competitive action in the DFL-Supercup against RB Leipzig. To their dismay, they suffered a 3-0 loss to the DFB-Pokal winners, marred by the debut of headline signing Harry Kane, who came on as a second-half substitute following his move from Tottenham Hotspur.

As Bayern aims to recover from this setback and begin their quest for a 12th consecutive league title, all eyes are on Kane, set to make his first start for the Bavarian giants on Friday night.

Historical Dominance and Streaks

Bayern Munich boasts an impressive record against Werder Bremen, having remained unbeaten in 31 competitive matches, securing victory 27 times and scoring nearly a century of goals. Their last loss in this fixture dates back to September 2008. Moreover, coach Thomas Tuchel, who led Bayern to the league title in the previous season, holds an impressive record against Werder, having won his last nine encounters since 2013.

While Bayern has maintained their dominance as the best away team in Germany, collecting 33 points on the road last season, Werder Bremen suffered from 10 home defeats. Given Bayern’s streak of not losing their opening fixture for the past 21 years, the odds are certainly in their favor for this clash.

Struggles for Werder Bremen

Werder Bremen faces an uphill battle as they haven’t won their opening game in the past eight Bundesliga seasons. Additionally, they hold the record for most losses against Bayern Munich in the league, totaling 60 encounters.

Last season, Werder Bremen finished 13th in the league, only three points clear of relegation playoff contention. They ended the campaign with a dismal run of one win in their last 12 matches. A recent loss to a lower-division side in the DFB-Pokal highlights their struggles.

Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Team News: Key Players

For Bayern Munich, the spotlight will be on Jamal Musiala and new signing Harry Kane, who will partner up in attack. Kane’s prolific Premier League scoring record makes him a player to watch. Additionally, Kim min-Jae and Raphael Guerreiro are among the new recruits for Bayern, but Guerreiro’s calf problem rules him out.

In contrast, Werder Bremen’s Naby Keita, a notable signing from Liverpool, won’t be available due to a groin injury. With Amos Pieper suspended after a red card, club captain Marco Friedl is expected to take his place in the back three. New signing Dawid Kownacki could provide support to Niclas Fullkrug upfront.

Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Probable Lineups

Werder Bremen: Pavlenka; Veljkovic, Stark, Friedl; Weiser, Bittencourt, Stage, Jung; Kownacki, Ducksch; Fullkrug

Bayern Munich: Ulreich; Pavard, Kim, De Ligt, Davies; Kimmich, Laimer; Sane, Musiala, Gnabry; Kane

Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich Prediction

We predict a scoreline of Werder Bremen 1-3 Bayern Munich. Despite Bayern’s setback in the previous week, their strong squad depth and international talent give them an edge. With the potential for Harry Kane to shine, Bayern’s impressive record at Weserstadion is likely to continue with their 15th straight victory.
