Bundesliga Live Streaming: Bayern look to pile on more misery on Bavarian rivals Nurnberg

bayernLatest Bayern Munich v Nurnberg live stream news, plus Werder Bremen v Borussia Dortmund from Germany this afternoon.

Bayern Munich are seen as 1/4 favourites to crush struggling Nurnberg on Saturday afternoon whilst former champions Werder Bremen look to pose a tough test for Borussia Dortmund.

There is seemingly little that anyone can do to stop the Bayern juggernaut from being victorious and relegation threatened Nurnberg are the next to feel the wrath of the defending champions.

 

Having still yet to be beaten this season, Bayern are running away with the league title and a win against their Bavarian neighbours could see them move thirteen points clear of second placed Bayer Leverkusen.

For Pep Guardiola, the fixture is likely to mark the starting return of Arjen Robben who scored within minutes of coming back from injury last weekend although Franck Ribery is a slight doubt after going for an operation on his buttocks.

Should Bayern break the deadlock first, it would mean the defending champions would have scored 20 goals in just their last five matches.

These fierce stats will no doubt cause some headaches for hosts Nurnberg who are in a fierce relegation battle with just goal difference keeping them out of the bottom three.

The good news for Gertjan Verbeek’s side is that they have key striker Josip Drmic fit for the clash who is on lightning form having scored five goals in his last four games.

It marks a small turn around for the Bavarian side who are on a five game unbeaten streak – their best form of a season in which the side failed to win their first 17 games.

In the other main clash of the weekend, Borussia Dortmund continue with their Champions League qualification push with a tough trip to the Weserstadion where Werder Bremen will be waiting for them.

Bremen aren’t quite the force they once were but the former Bundesliga champions beat Bayer earlier this season showing that the side has more fight than their 12th placed ranking suggests.

For the home side, the game is likely to mark the return of both Clemens Fritz and Mehmet Ekici as both players have been struggling with injury problems as of late.

Dortmund have managed to regain some of their past form in recent weeks and last week’s win against Eintracht Braunschweig helped them move three points clear of their rivals in third.

There are yet more injury woes for Jurgen Klopp’s side as Mats Hummels was ruled out for a fortnight after re-aggravating an injury during training meaning that Manuel Friedrich is likely to take his place.

No matter who wins in Bremen, it seems that Bayern will end up champions come end of the season even if sides such as Nurnberg spring an upset and take points away from the league leaders.
