The Champions will host Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon but one eye will firmly be planted on the visit of Juventus in four days. Bayern Munich have quality footballers throughout the squad and strength in depth, Pep Guardiola has already announced his move to Manchester City in the summer and it will be interesting to see if he can keep Bayern focused on all fronts. Last weekend Munich laboured through a draw with Borussia Dortmund and this game against Werder Bremen could represent an interesting challenge. Guardiola may choose to rest Muller, Robben and Lewandowski and if he does so then Werder Bremen could take advantage.
Bremen come into this game off the back of two 4-1 wins in a row. Bremen's front three have caught fire and the ageless Claudio Pizarro will be back in familiar territory having played for nine years overall, he has eleven goals this season and is one of the key figures for Bremen in terms of experience and ability to link the play and finish chances. Ujah is having a great season and is just four goals shy of his career best in league goals. The Nigerian international will look to play off the shoulder of Pizarro and could take advantage of any complacency on the part of Munich's defence.
If this game was out of the Allianz Arena I think I would be taking Werder Bremen straight up, but as it is in the home of Bayern Munich I am going to take both teams to score here. I think Bremen will cover the handicap as well and at +2 this could be worth taking especially if it reaches +2.5. Bremen are going to represent a tough game before an even bigger midweek game against Juventus.
