SV Werder Bremen will be seeking revenge for their 6-0 opening day defeat when they welcome FC Bayern München to the Weser Stadium this Saturday (kick-off 15:30CET/14:30GMT).
Bremen will need no reminding of how they opened the season in Munich back in August, although Alexander Nouri's men will have six good reasons to want revenge in front of their own fans this weekend. A spirited display with just ten men against Borussia Dortmund will have convinced them of their capabilities of holding their own against the Bundesliga's top brass.
Bayern are on a six-game winning streak, though, and with RB Leipzig clinging onto their coat-tails, they know they cannot afford to slip up this weekend. Carlo Ancelotti will look back fondly on his Bundesliga baptism, and a repeat performance – and result – would be the ideal way for the record titleholders to start their second half of the season.
