Bayern is hosting Werder in round 30 of German Bundesliga.
Bayern is playing fantastic soccer at the moment and hasn’t lost any of their last 10 Bundesliga matches. In their last game against Fortuna, Bayern had a great match with 68% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks and 89% of correct passes and was able to win this game 1-4. With this victory, Bayern once again ended up in the top of the standings with 67 points, 1 point ahead of Borussia Dortmund. With 78 scored goals, Bayern is the best offensive teams in Germany and one of the best in Europe. Robert Lewandowski is Bayern’s top goal scorer with 21 goals while Kimmich added 11 assists and Muller 10. Coach Kovac’s future is still uncertain but he has bigger problems at the moment because his star goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is injured and probably won’t return before the end of the season. Bayern has scored 14 goals in last 3 matches and they seem to be unstoppable in Bundesliga and are getting close to winning another Bundesliga title.
Werder is playing in amazing form and hasn’t lost any of their last 14 games and because of that Werder is only 6 points away from Champions League spot. In their last game against Freiburg, Werder had a great game with 62% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks and 81% of correct passes and has won 2-1. Max Kruse leads Werder with 10 goals while Rashica added 8 goals. The only injured player is Bartels which means that coach Kohfeldt will have his top lineup available for this match. Werder had a lot of problems on the defensive end when the season started and have conceded 41 goals thus far and have conceded at least 1 goal 9 of the last 10 games. Werder is not playing overly offensive soccer and is mostly focused on controlling the midfield which is the strongest part of their team. Werder is a team with a lot of potentials but I think that this 7th place they are on at the moment is their maximum this season because teams like Leverkusen and Hoffenheim have more quality and more experience and will end up in front of Werder in the Bundesliga standings.
Bayern hasn’t lost any of their last 15 games against Werder and there are usually a lot of goals scored when Bayern and Werder meet. Bayern has a lot more quality in their team then Werder and needs this win more than Werder to stay at the top of the Bundesliga table and for that reason, I'm going to pick Bayern to win this match.
