Werder Bremen have been playing well in recent times and are proving to be a force to be reckoned with, at least going forward, as in defence they still look feeble. Manager Viktor Skripnik will have to choose one out of Santiago Garcia and Janek Sternberg for the role of left-back with Fin Bartels replacing the suspended Franco Di Santo up front and Levin Öztunali in central attacking midfield. Bayern on the other hand are dominating the Bundesliga as usual and are sitting comfortably at the top, 11 points clear Manager Guardiola can also rely on the return of several injured players which offers him the opportunity to rotate his squad nicely in the next few weeks. Mehdi Benatia should replace Holger Badstuber at centre-back with Philipp Lahm returning from injury in central midfield. Thomas Müller and Mario Götze should start in attacking midfield as Arjen Robben is a doubt for the match.
