Preview: Bremer SV should make themselves ready for a stern test ahead as they welcome Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to the Stadion am Panzenberg in DFB Pokal on Wednesday evening. While the hosts will enter this contest on the back of a 3-1 win over Blumenthaler SV in the Bremen-Liga, the visitors too tasted a 3-2 win over FC Koln in their previous match. This should set it up nicely for this game however Bayern Munich start the match as favorites with a stronger squad at their disposal.
Bremer SV- As of now, head coach Fabrizio Muzzicato seems to be having all his members of the squad at his disposal. We can expect what he believes to be the strongest possible XI on the field today against a tough opponent.
Bayern Munich- Meanwhile, Bayern Munich will not be able to avail the services of Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard both of whom have been sidelined through injuries. Meanwhile, manager Julian Nagelsmann is expected to announce a reshuffled XI with Michael Cuisance and Jamal Musiala getting calls in the starting XIs.
Analysis: While both teams are clearly enjoying a good run of form, there should be little debate as to who will feel the more pressure. It will obviously be the bottom-ranked Bremer SV having an opportunity to do something special. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich would also rest some of their key players in order to keep them fresh for a sterner test ahead in the season. This could be the only chance for Bremer to make use of but even then Munch has the firepower and should cruise to a win in this contest.
Probable Playing XI:
Bremer SV: Ole Bahr, Sebastian Kmiec, Benjamin Duell, Fabio Orlick, Ugo Nobile, Mats Kaiser, Ali Wazneh, Mahdi Matar, Sebastian Kurkiewicz, Lamine Diop, Oscar Garcia
Bayern Munich: Sven Ulreich, Omar Richards, Tanguy Nianzou, Niklas Sule, Josip Stanisic, Marc Roca, Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Michael Cuisance, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
