Werder Bremen vs. Bayern Munich Preview
Werder Bremen awaits Bayern Munich in the game of the season for them. If they lose, the relegation is pretty close. On the other side, the win wouldn’t guarantee salvation, but it might provide a nice boost and a much easier situation than otherwise. With a victory in this event, the Bavarians are becoming champions for the 30th time in their history.

Werder’s Do or Die
The River Islanders have the same number of points as Fortuna Dusseldorf in the 16th place, the one which leads to the playout. They are also three points behind Mainz, who is safe and the first teams above the relegation zone. So, a win here would mean a world for Werder’s survival.
Yet, that won’t be easy at all, as they have the most dominant team in Germany across the field. We all know that Bayer harasses the entire Bundesliga and that they don’t have a worthy opponent in this competition.
Werder defeated Paderborn 1-5 in the previous round, breaking a two-game skid where they hadn’t managed to score at all.
Nuri Sahin and Kevin Mohwald won’t be in the protocol at all because of their injuries, while Claudio Pizzaro and Omer Toprak stand as questionable.
Bayern Win Away From the Title
If they win this one, the Bavarians are officially the champions of Bundesliga for the season 2020. That would be their 30th national title, and they could relax in the final two rounds, focusing on setting up goals for Robert Lewandowski, who is trying to capture the European Golden Booth.
Since coming back to the field after COVID-19, Bayern posted seven wins, six of them with at least two goals scored, and five with over 2.5 goals. In two out of three games played on the road, the team from Munich didn’t concede at all, and if you look at their overall form, it is more than convincing.
Lewandowski is back in the lineup after a suspension, as well as Thomas Muller. Coutinho, Lukas Mai, Niklas Sule, Tolisso, and Arp are not available for this match, while Thiago Alcantara’s status is still questionable.
Head to Head
Werder was blown into pieces in the first match of the season, played at Allianz Arena. Bayern packed six goals in their net, allowing only one, and to make it even more ironic, the guests were the ones who drew the first blood. It was Milot Rashica to score the opener after 24 minutes, but that was all from the River Islanders in this match. Coutinho leveled in the 45th minute, and Lewandowski brought the lead to the hosts in the fourth minute of the stoppage time of the first half.
Lewa added two more goals, Coutinho one, and Thomas Muller put his name on the scoresheet.
Bayern is the absolute favorite here, and the way they play, we believe that there would be goals in this match. Furthermore, because of the current situation, we think that Werder too might score, so both teams to score and over 2.5 stands here as our proposal, with the moneyline at -200.
