Bayern Munich travel to the Weserstadion to take on Werder Bremen on Tuesday night with the full knowledge that a win will seal a historic eighth straight Bundesliga crown.
Despite Saturday’s morale-boosting 5-1 win over Paderborn, Bremen are still in the relegation territory, level on points with Fortuna Dusseldorf but just three points adrift of safety. That win was their third straight on the road for Bremen who are having a somewhat diabolical season in as far as their performances at home and on their travels are concerned.
They have the worst home record in the entire division with just one home win all season to go with 11 losses and 3 draws from their 15 home Bundesliga games. Florian Kohfeldt will need to summon all the belief into his squad and they will need to be at their best as they are up against a team that has not lost on their trips all season.
Davy Klaassen netted a brace in the 5-1 rout of Paderborn and coach Kohfeldt will be hoping for the same magic here as they try to salvage their hopes for survival.
Leon Goretzka’s goal in a below-par 2-1 win over Monchengladbach on Saturday evening put the champions on the brink of another league title. Save for Dortmund’s last-gasp goal at Fortuna Dusseldorf just before kickoff, they could have sealed the deal without having to kick a ball last weekend.
The Bavarians have nevertheless been in breathtaking form in a historic run that stretches back to prior to the break. They have been even more lethal after the resumption of the league winning all seven games that they have played – although they had to sweat out the last two wins, 2-1 identical victories over Frankfurt and Gladbach in the Cup and League respectively.
Such scrappy wins are the stuff that makes champions and coach Flick would not mind that at all.
At this point in time, saying Bayern Munich are unstoppable is not hyperbole. Because that’s exactly the case. They are unbeaten in their last 21 games in all competitions (20W, 1D). A win here will see them popping the champagne to their eighth straight Bundesliga title – a testament to their absolute dominance over the years. They have been in such situations so many times before and have delivered time after time. We are backing them to get the job done early enough and go on to win the game and the title to boot.
Betting Tip: HALFTIME/FULLTIME, BAYERN/BAYERN @ 1.57 with Bwin betting app
There is so much at stake for both teams. Bremen still have a lot of work to do if they are to avoid dropping into the lower tier. They have only ever been relegated once – back in 1980 – and they came back the very next season. Bayern need just a win to pull the curtains down on a successful season. Bremen will not be rolling out the carpet for them. So we can expect a relatively tight encounter.
