Werder Bremen vs Bayern Munich German Bundesliga Date: Saturday, 28 January 2017, Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET Venue: Weserstadion, Bremen.
Werder Bremen were on the brink of making a real sensation last weekend when they managed to level the score against Borussia Dortmund with a man down in the second half. However, Alex Nouri’s men were unlucky to have conceded a second goal from a rebound to lose their first match in 2017. It was the first defeat for the team after five consecutive matches without a loss.
The positive run in December helped Bremen to escape the relegation zone, but they could well return there after this weekend and the match with the reigning champions.
The story is completely different with Bayern Munich on the other side. The Bavarians were lucky to score the winner in the stoppage time of Friday’s game away at Freiburg. Robert Lewandowski announced a strong campaign netting a brace at the start of 2017 to take his Bundesliga tally to 14 goals so far in the season. It was the sixth consecutive win for the champions who kept three-point gap ahead of RB Leipzig at the top.
