Bremen are unbeaten since the opening week of the campaign in the Bundesliga, although only two of those results have been victories. Florian Kohfeldt’s side have drawn their last four matches, including their 1-1 draw against Koln last time out. A flawless performance is required from Die Grun-Weissen this afternoon to overcome the league leaders.
Bayern were in formidable form before the international break, winning their last 10 matches on the bounce in all competitions. Hansi Flick’s men produced a fine performance to defeat Borussia Dortmund on the road to claim top spot in the Bundesliga. Since being stunned by Hoffenheim in week two of the game, Bayern have been at their imperious best and will be lining up another triumph this afternoon.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Bundesliga clash between Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen at Allianz Arena.
