It’s a new matchday, and this time Bayern Munich host perennial Bundesliga - um, I can’t say “competitors”, so let’s call them “participants” - Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena. Lewandowski is back, Alaba is sick, and Bremen will be in for some pain.
On the Bayern side of things, it looks relatively good at the moment. Jupp Heynckes’ squad hasn’t yet burst into form, but the work in progress is still there. Juan Bernat is expected to return to the starting lineup with David Alaba out with illness, and Mats Hummels is still sick (for some reason). Thiago Alcantara completed individual training but isn’t ready to play with the team, and Robert Lewandowski has overcome his patella problems and is expected to make a comeback to the starting lineup.
Meanwhile Werder Bremen is battling relegation (as usual).
It’s Bayern time.
