Just before an impending international break, Bayern Munich travel to the north of Germany to face arch Bundesliga participants Werder Bremen.
The record champions come into the game off a flawed but promising 3-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen. Coach Carlo Ancelotti will have almost a full-fit squad to choose from, with only James Rodriguez, Jerome Boateng, and Juan Bernat unavailable due to injuries.
On the eve of an international break where several of his players have been called up to represent their national teams, the coach might have to make some tough decisions regarding playing-time. However, a win is still the expected result for the Bavarians, who have not lost in this stadium for a decade. Werder will have a mountain to climb.
It’s Bayern time.
Location: Weser-Stadion, Bremen, Germany
Time: 3:30 pm local time, 9:30 am EST

- The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
That’s about it. Auf geht’s!
