Werder Bremen v Bayern Munich, Saturday 14:30
Should the Bundesliga titans fail to earn victory on Saturday, Bayern Munich can be ruled out of the race for the league title if they fail to earn a win at Werder Bremen on Saturday as bet365 offer free bets and are showing this game via their live stream service as Jupp Heynckes’ men look for winning ways at the Weserstadion.
Die Bayern will still be riding high on their midweek victory over Real Madrid that sees them bring a 2-1 advantage into next week’s second-leg fixture.
However, efforts will now be focused on league matters as Bayern hope to bounce back to winning ways following a run of form that has seen them go their last two matches without a win.
The Munich outfit have been imperious at home this season but haven’t been quite as impressive in unfamiliar territory.
Heynckes’ side have scored an average of just 1.47 goals per game this season when playing away from home, half the amount they’ve managed at the Allianz Arena.
It’s fortunate for this weekend’s visitors then, that as things stand, Werder Bremen go into the match with one of the worst recent form records in the German top flight.
Thomas Schaaf’ team are without a win in six matches but after Mainz managed to snatch a point at Bayern Munich last weekend, Werder Bremen will be hopeful of extending their poor run of league results.
The River Islanders have had their home form to fall back on in what has been a disappointing second half of the season, scoring an average of 1.87 goals per game at the Weserstadion this term.
Should Saturday’s visitors come away from this game with anything but three points, the 2011-12 Bundesliga championship will officially be staying in Borussia Dortmund’s hand this year, giving Der FCB the incentive needed to replicate their Champions League form on a domestic front.
