Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Werder Bremen v. Bayern Munich Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Bayern Munich sit comfortably at the top of the standings with 73 points and own a seven-point lead over Borussia Dortmund with three games in the schedule, which means one thing: if they win here at Bremen, they will win their eighth consecutive Bundesliga title. They should be considered as massive favorites to secure the three points in this one, as Bremen sit near the bottom of the standings and Bayern have gone 13 straight competitive matches with a win. The hosts are coming off a huge 5-1 win at Paderborn last weekend, but that will not cause much optimism given they now face the strongest team in the league.

Top Picks

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich: Lewandoski has found the back of the net in eight of his last nine starts in all competitions, tallying 10 goals and two assists during that stretch, and he should return to the starting XI after missing last weekend's tilt due to suspension. He should be in line for a strong performance in this one, as has netted back-to-back braces in his prior two contests against Bremen.

Benjamin Pavard, Bayern Munich: Pavard gets another crack at an important role in since he remains one of Bayern's most productive players despite his defensive role. Other solid alternatives for captaincy are Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry, while Davy Klaassen, who netted two goals last week, could be a strong choice if picking a Bremen-based lineup.
