Share

WBN vs BAY Dream11: The reigning champions travel to Bremen for a tie in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich is currently on top of the table but uncharacteristically, not by much. Die Bavarians have a 2-point lead over RB Leipzig who is keenly chasing them. Bayern has won their last 3 games having overcome their slump, not too long back. Werder, on the other hand, sits firmly in mid-table with 7 wins, 9 draws and 8 defeats so far. They are unbeaten in their last 3 games including an impressive win over Frankfurt. The home side doesn’t have the best home record but should still pose a tough test to Bayern Munich.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Robert Lewandowski – Goal-machine, Robert Lewandowski, is the highest goal-scorer in Europe this season. He has already crossed the 30-goal mark and is on 31 goals and 6 assists in the Bundesliga this season. Lewandowski has a goal or assist in almost every game that he has played in this season and scored a hattrick against Dortmund last week.

Thomas Muller – Muller has been excellent this season with 21 goal contributions (10 goals and 11 assists) in 21 starts this season. He has carried on his impressive run from last season and has created an incredible 72 chances so far. With the likes of Lewandowski playing in front of him and Sane and Coman on the flanks, these numbers are only set to increase.

Differential Pick

Joshua Sargent – Joshua Sargent has been excellent this season with 5 goals and 2 assists this season but has scored a goal in each of his last 3 games. He also scored the opening goal in his last 2 games he has played in and will look to do the same to upset Bayern Munich’s rhythms. 78% of Sargent’s shots have been on target and has succeeded in 61% of his attempted dribbles. His job will be to be the target man in the Bayern box and catch them off with an early goal.

WBN vs BAY Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Neuer
Defenders – Davies, Pavard, Sule, Alaba
Midfielders – Mohwald, Eggestein, Selassie
Forwards – Lewandowski (C), Muller (VC), Sargent

Likely Winner

Bayern Munich will know that this game is a must-win for them given that any slip-up can be capitalised upon by RB Leipzig. Die Bavarians have scored the most goals in the league with 71 in 24 games while Dortmund, who is second on the list, have scored 50. But they have also conceded 34 and that is where Werder Bremen will look to exploit the reigning champions in the WBN vs BAY Today Match Prediction. Werder also does not have a strong home record and will do very well to come out of this game with a result.
