Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Bundesliga clash between Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich, including team news and predicted lineups.

Bayern Munich make the trip to the Weserstadion to face Werder Bremen on Tuesday night knowing that victory will be enough to claim their eighth successive Bundesliga title.

Despite Saturday's thumping victory over Paderborn, Bremen head into the contest aware that they still have work to do if they want to avoid relegation to the second tier.

Match preview

Although Bayern only produced a sub-standard performance against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday evening, the 2-1 victory has put the club on the brink of yet another top-flight crown.

The below-par showing could be put down to the disappointment of seeing Borussia Dortmund's last-gasp strike at Fortuna Dusseldorf shortly before kickoff, a goal which ensured that Hansi Flick's team would not be able to get over the line at the weekend.

Nevertheless, Leon Goretzka's goal has left Bayern one win away from winning the title, which would be Flick's first as the chief man in the dugout.

To some degree, Flick would have taken pride from witnessing his players scrap their way to an important victory over strong opposition, rather than win at a canter without getting out of second gear.

Bayern will require such character if they are to claim the treble, a target which will be at the front of their minds if they cap off an outstanding second half of their league campaign on Tuesday.

Although Bayern are clear favourites to register a 12th Bundesliga win in a row, they cannot afford to take Bremen lightly given what is at stake for their hosts.

After Mainz 05's defeat to Augsburg, Bremen sit just three points adrift of 15th spot, the position which they need to achieve in order to avoid dropping down to the second tier.

To their credit, 10 points have been recorded from six games since the restart, including a dominant 5-1 triumph at bottom-placed Paderborn on Saturday afternoon.

That result came off the back of successive defeats without finding the back of the net, and Florian Kohfeldt will only have been left encouraged by the belief within his squad.

Former Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen netted a double during the weekend's rout, taking his tally to six strikes and four assists in the league this season.

However, ahead of his likely move to RB Leipzig, Milot Rashica is under pressure to score his first league goal since December, missing an opportunity to end that run from the spot versus Paderborn.

Team News

After missing out against Monchengladbach through suspension, Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski will be handed an immediate recall.

The return to the experienced duo is likely to lead to Michael Cuisance and Joshua Zirkzee dropping down to the substitutes' bench.

Alphonso Davies and Kingsley Coman are also expected to be recalled down the left-hand side at the expense of Lucas Hernandez and Ivan Perisic.

Barring any late injury issues, Kohfeldt is unlikely to make many changes to his Bremen starting lineup.

Leonardo Bittencourt could be handed a recall, potentially at the expense of Josh Sargent, having been rested at the weekend.

Werder Bremen possible starting lineup:
Pavlenka; Veljkovic, Vogt, Moisander; Selassie, Eggestein, Klaassen, Augustinsson; Osako; Bittencourt, Rashica

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Gnabry, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski

We say: Werder Bremen 0-2 Bayern Munich

Although Bremen will naturally be full of belief, we cannot back against Bayern, whom we expect to do a professional job on Tuesday evening. While it may not be pretty at times, the visitors have the quality to provide themselves with a comfortable night.
