Bayern Munich steps toward 12th title

Bayern Munich steps toward 12th title

Bayern Munich is now looking to take a step towards their 12th title in Bundesliga as they go against Werder Bremen to open their campaign. Bayern does not have the confidence for this match, following their defeat in the DFL-Supercup. As they come into this game, they are aiming to prove that they are still one of the dangerous teams in the contest. As for Werder, they are not doing well when it comes to Bundesliga opening games. In fact, in any of their last eight openers for Bundesliga, they failed to win any of those games. However, they are hoping that they will finally put a stop in that record as they look to put a stop for that. This meeting will be on August 19, 2023, at 2:30 AM (GMT+8), with Werder as hosts.

From the last 56 matches that these two teams played, it was the visitors who holds the upper hand. They already won 37 of those matches, as opposed to the hosts’ 10 victories. However, the visitors also suffered 26 defeats against the hosts in the contests in total. Fortunately for them, they were able to go unbeaten in their opening matches in their last 21 campaigns. As for the hosts, they are not doing well when it comes to their opening games. They last won an opening match in Bundesliga in 2013, and since then, they lost to their eight opening matches in the contest. Coming into this game, the hosts are hoping for strong and fresh start for a better campaign.

Bayern is a very strong team in Bundesliga, considering the number of titles they have in the contest. In fact, last season, they were once again crowned as the winners of Bundesliga. However, it seems like they are not at their best recently, following their results over the past months. They suffered a devastating 3-0 loss against RB Leipzig on their last match in the DFL Supercup. Due to this, they are eager to prove that they are now ready to defend their title in Bundesliga. Fortunately for Bundesliga, they have an excellent squad, but they have a lots of areas to improve on. Over the recent months, their impressive squad failed to be as impressive they were. Harry Kane, who Bundesliga signed during the summer, might be debuted in Bundesliga through this match.

Following the signing of Harry Kane, Jamal Musiala is partnering up with him to lead their squad to victory. However, Bayern lost some of their key players, especially Sadio Mane, during the summer transfer. Additionally, Guerreiro will be missing out this game, as he remains to be with calf problem.

Werder is a team who finished their Bundesliga campaign in the contest at the 13th place. This is not surprising as they failed to be at their best over the past years. However, on their last game, Werder suffered a shocking 3-2 loss against Viktoria Koln, which is why they need to work harder to win this game. It is just unfortunate that Werder are not doing well when it comes to their openers in Bundesliga. In fact, they last won their Bundesliga opener in 2013, and are now experiencing a losing streak in their last eight opening matches. They have been inconsistent over the years which is one of the reasons why they failed to impress over the years. However, they cannot allow this anymore if they want to at least achieve greater success here.

Naby keita, who joined Werder during the transfer window is unavailable here, following the groin injury he sustained.
