Bayern on 32-Game Unbeaten Streak vs Werder
Bayern Munich have enjoyed recent matchups vs Werder Bremen. In all competitions, the Bavarians are unbeaten in their last 32 matches vs Werder. The two sides meet on Sunday in the Bundesliga, and Bayern will be eager to pick up all three points. Still, Werder Bremen hold a longer unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga, at four matches. As Bayern try to catch up with league leaders Bayer Leverkusen, we’ll preview the Bayern Munich vs Bremen Bundesliga odds.
Heading into this match, Bayern Munich have won 23 of their last 24 Bundesliga fixtures vs Werder Bremen. On the first matchday of the 2023-24 season, Bayern Munich defeated Werder Bremen 4-0. The prematch Bayern Munich vs Bremen Bundesliga odds priced Bayern as -370 favorites. Werder haven’t defeated Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga for over 15 years. The Bavarians enter the weekend on a 32-game unbeaten streak vs Werder Bremen in all competitions.
Bayern Keep Clean Sheet vs Hoffenheim
In their first Bundesliga game of 2024, Bayern Munich picked up a 3-0 win over Hoffenheim, but it was closer than the scoreline suggests. Jamal Musiala scored from a tight angle in the first half to give Bayern a lead, but getting a second goal wasn’t easy. On the other hand, Manuel Neuer had to make a couple of crucial stops to deny Hoffenheim an equalizer. Musiala got his second goal of the night and Leroy Sane his second assist, in the 70th minute. Harry Kane sealed the deal just as stoppage time began, with his 22nd goal of the season.
Bayern have a game in hand on leaders Bayer Leverkusen, but the Bavarians are still four points behind. Regardless, Bayern Munich show -350 Bundesliga betting odds to win the title for a record 12th straight season. The Bavarians also have the distinction of being the first team to keep a clean sheet vs Hoffenheim this season.
Kane alone has scored more goals than seven of the 18 Bundesliga teams this season and he’s been an incredible addition to Thomas Tuchel’s squad. Sane also leads the league, with 10 assists through 17 games. Bayern’s Kim Min-jae and Noussair Mazraoui are away on international duty, so it’s imperative that Dayot Upamecano and Matthijs de Ligt stay healthy in the meantime. Serge Gnabry is currently out through injury, but Bayern’s attack is explosive either way.
Key Players Suspended for Werder Bremen
Werder Bremen have been quite an inconsistent pick for soccer betting so far in the 2023-24 campaign and enter the weekend in 13th place. Last Sunday, Werder went on the road to VfL Bochum and came away with their third straight Bundesliga draw. Bochum’s Patrick Osterhage opened up the scoring with a thunderous strike, and Werder’s Niklas Stark responded with one of his own in stoppage time.
However, Rafael Borre looks to have played his last match for Werder Bremen, as the Colombian international has reportedly joined Internacional in Brazil. Borre was on loan from Eintracht Frankfurt and scored four Bundesliga goals in 14 appearances for Werder Bremen. Werder Bremen leading scorer Marvin Ducksch is also out for this match due to a suspension. Expect Justin Njinmah to be the focal point of Werder Bremen’s attack as a result.
Starting midfielder Leonardo Bittencourt is also out due to suspension. Meanwhile, defenders Milos Veljkovic and Amos Pieper are out injured. Naby Keita, who hasn’t played much this season to begin with, is away on international duty as well. Ducksch and Borre have scored nearly half of Werder Bremen’s goals this season. With other absences, it’s going to take a massive effort for them to get a result here.
Match Analysis & Odds
The latest Bayern Munich vs Bremen Bundesliga odds certainly reflect Werder’s key absences. Currently, Bayern are massive -1465 favorites which corresponds to an implied 93.6 chance of victory. With how well Bayern Munich have played vs Werder Bremen in recent seasons, it certainly makes sense.
At this point, it’s more surprising when Kane doesn’t get on the scoresheet for Bayern and he’s always a solid option as an anytime goalscorer. Bettors can take Bayern -2.5, -3 at -105 odds in this one, while Werder Bremen +2.5, +3 comes in at -115. Notably, Werder Bremen haven’t won a single road game in the Bundesliga this season and are 0-3-5 away from home. Still, they’ve only lost by a three-goal margin or more twice this season.
Werder Bremen are +2135 underdogs in this one and for good reason. A draw is also seen as highly unlikely, at +1035. Werder did manage to snag a draw at the Allianz in 2020 but have lost on 11 of their last 12 trips to Munich, in all competitions. Both over and under four goals display -110 odds for this one as a Bayern demolition is expected.
