Do you remember how the Bundesliga started? Bayern Munich started the season in style with a clobbering of Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena. On Saturday, they’ll make the trip to the Weserstadion for the reverse contest.

Robert Lewandowski rescued three points for Bayern with a great last weekend against Freiburg. With another road performance ahead of the Bavarians, they’re going to need consistent effort across the board to put together a solid performance in Bremen.

Yes, a match against Werder should be a definite three points for Bayern. The table toppers are 26 points ahead of Werder, who fight this year will be to avoid relegation. At 37 years old, Alexander Nouri has his hands full in trying to restore Werder to respectability.

We asked three of our writers to predict what lineup Ancelotti will play against Werder.
