Back on Top
Being one of the three teams that haven’t lost in their last five games allowed Bayern Munich to regain the top spot in the Bundesliga. Well, FC Union Berlin collapsing also has a lot to do with that. The thing is that the reigning champions only have a one-point advantage over Freiburg, meaning they can’t slow down the slightest bit.
As for Werder Bremen, the River Islanders are aiming for a third straight victory, which could boost them up to the top five. As expected, they come in as the betting online underdogs, but Bayern already lost four points when playing as the host.
Let’s check the latest Bundesliga odds, stats, injury reports, and Bundesliga lines for Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen. We’ve plenty of Bundesliga betting odds for you to consider.
Bayern Munich: Musiala Provides Spark
When Robert Lewandowski decided to move to Barcelona, some Bayern Munich fans freaked out. After all, they were losing 35 goals per season. As a response, the front office went out and signed Sadio Mane, who has scored six goals in the Bundesliga. That’s not bad, but apparently, the answer was already at home. We’re talking about Jamal Musiala, who’s the team’s top scorer with eight goals.
Last Saturday, Musiala scored the opener against Hertha Berlin, a match that Bayern Munich ended up winning 3-2. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting contributed a brace. More good news, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer returned after missing several games due to injury.
Overall, Bayern Munich are the top scoring team in the league with 41 goals. Defensively, no other team has allowed less goals than them with 12. In other words, we’re talking about a team with very few shortcomings.
As mentioned before, the reigning champs already lost four points when playing as the host. Nonetheless, they remain unbeaten thanks to a 4-2-0 record. They’ve scored 20 goals and allowed five at Allianz Arena, finishing with a clean sheet in three of those games.
Needless to say, Bayern dominate the soccer lines thanks to a -550 price, meaning you would have to wager $550 to win $100. Seems like a lot, right? But considering all of the above that’s actually not a bad deal.
Fullkrug Leads Werder Bremen
Only three players have scored more goals than Musiala, and one of them plays for Werder Bremen. We’re talking about Niclas Fullkrug, who has scored 10 goals, one less than RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku, who sits on top of the scoring chart.
Fullkrug also scored the opener in his team’s last game, a 2-1 victory over Schalke 04 at home. Marvin Ducksch sealed the deal in the second half. Bremen lost possession with 45 percent but took two more shots on target than the visitors. That’s right, we’re also talking about one of the best teams when it comes to counter-attacking.
Their road record (3-2-1) isn’t the best, but they’ve lost two games less on the road than at home. Plus, they scored in all six games but one and finished with a clean sheet once.
The visitors, who are offering a +1300 price in the sportsbook to win straight up, will have Marco Friedl back. The center-back missed the last two games due to suspension. Summing up, you can expect a good fight from the River Islanders.

Bayern vs Werder Bremen Prediction
Besides Musiala, Choupo-Moting, and Mane, Bayern Munich’s attacking unit also includes Gnabry, Leroy Sane, and Kingsley Coman. That’s kind of unfair. In other words, I expect Bayern to win and maintain an average of three goals per game. That being said, I also expect Werder Bremen to put up a good fight, meaning they’ll score, which is why I recommend you include the visitors’ in your soccer picks.
Score Prediction: Bayern Munich 3, Werder Bremen 1
