Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen Prediction

In the first Sunday kick-off, there is a real David vs Goliath feels to this game: Bayern Munich, the champions, receive a dogged but flailing 16th-placed Bremen.
Bayern Munich are clear favorites here and no other team in the Bundesliga (BUN) have won five in a row – they lie first with a comfortable 13 point advantage; no team in BUN history has ever lost such a big lead.
Flashback to the first meeting: On the second match day, the guys from Bremen fought bravely against the Bavarians and were able to hold them at 0-0 until the 72nd minute when a three-minute brace from Robert Lewandowski gave Bayern a 2-0 win.
The change of coaches at Bremen has worked so far for Florian Kohlfeld. The team have a balanced run of form (W3, D2, L3) and collected eleven points (11) under his guidance, twice as many as predecessor Nouri (five points from ten games).
Players to watch: Polish striker Robert Lewandowski has scored twelve goals against Bremen in all competitions. He is already on 15 goals – more goals than the entire Bremen team.
With four goals and three assists, Max Kruse has been directly involved in 50% of Werder Bremen’s goals.
Stat attack: Bayern Munich has won all of the last 13 games against Bremen and have a clean sheet in eight of the last nine duels against the Hanseatic team.
Munich have scored in each of the last 15 Bundesliga matches and in each of the previous home games this season at least one goal.
Bayern are experts in scoring the opening goal in their matches – in almost 90% of their games they score first. This would probably be enough, as two-thirds of Bremen’s games have had under 2.5 goals in total.

Our Prediction: Bayern to win 3-0
