Bayern Munich 0 vs 1 Werder Bremen: Bayern Munich has crossed yet another unanticipated defeat but this time at home to an average Werder Bremen side. While the scoreline may suggest that it was a close game, it couldn’t be further from the truth.
Bayern were all over the pitch and it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to suggest that it was a one-sided evening in favor of the Bavarians but had failed to find the net.
Are the attackers to be blamed if you have someone like Harry Kane up top or do you go after the defenders? It may boil down to a mix of the two as there were several lapses in both areas of the pitch.
With that said, let us take a quick look at how the event unfolded at the picturesque Allianz Arena.
Match Summary: Bayern Munich 0 vs 1 Werder Bremen
As mentioned earlier, the game was heavily one-sided as Bayern kept much of the ball at 68% and drove forward relentlessly every time Werder Bremen’s midfield misplaced a pass.
Bayern made good runs forward and kept disturbing Bremen’s back-line, having registered a total of 22 shots but they simply lacked the clinicality to give them those goals.
Despite having an xG of 1.92, Bayern simply couldn’t find a way past Bremen’s keeper Michael Zetterer who had a stupendous outing, making a total of 7 brilliant saves.
The game had a rather poetic ending to the game Mitchell Weiser, ex-Bayern Defender scored the only goal of the game in the 59th minute to give Bremen their first win over Bayern at the Allianz Arena since 2008.
Harry Kane, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, and Kingsley Coman all had an average evening. Despite making the runs forward and threatening Bremen’s defense, they simply couldn’t find a response and Kane in particular had a disappointing display with a shot over the bar being his best effort.
Seven Points behind Bayer Leverkusen
With this defeat, Bayern are now seven points behind the league leaders who are currently unbeaten, Bayer Leverkusen. This loss may have been an impeding element in their ambitions to win the Bundesliga again.
Thomas Tuchel was irate and had the following to say:
“We played today like it didn’t matter as if we were 10 points ahead and had a Champions League match to play on Tuesday.
“We wanted to start aggressively and send a signal, but we didn’t succeed at all.”
Updates on Kieran Trippier
Newcastle have had internal discussions regarding Kieran Trippier’s transfer and have concluded that he is not for sale given Bayern’s current bid. However, an improved offer might be considered.
Kieran Trippier has also reassured the higher-ups that he will not be forcing a move despite his wishes to join Bayern Munich and have a greater chance of winning the Champions League, an opportunity that slipped from his fate back in 2019 with Tottenham Hotspur.
The Englishman has had some experiences playing abroad as he won the La Liga with Atlético Madrid back in 2021. Do you think he’ll keep up the same momentum at Bayern?
