• Bayern vs. Bremen is a battle between the most successful Bundesliga clubs: FCB are top of the all-time Bundesliga table with 3,267 points (partially converted to the 3-points-per-win system), while Werder are second with 2,600 points.
  • Werder are the side Bayern have suffered the most defeats to (26) and conceded the most goals against (117) in the Bundesliga.
  • However, Bremen’s last win over Bayern was over five years ago (September 2008). FCB have won each of the last six meetings with a goal record of 24:4.
  • Bremen’s 7-0 loss in the meeting earlier this season was their biggest ever Bundesliga defeat at home. Ribery (2), Götze, Müller, Mandzukic, van Buyten and Lukimya (own goal) provided the goals in what was also Bayern’s biggest away win in the top flight (together with an 8-1 victory at St. Pauli in 2011).
  • FC Bayern have scored the most goals from crosses from open play this season (16). Bremen have conceded the most goals from crosses (15).
  • If Bremen get a result in the Allianz Arena, it would be enough to guarantee their Bundesliga safety.
  • Bayern have the best pass accuracy in the league (88%), while Bremen have the worst (70%) – FCB (22,476) have made more than twice as many passes as Werder (10,568).
  • Mandzukic’s goal against Braunschweig was the 14th from a Bayern substitute in 2013/14 – FCB have never scored as many goals from the bench in the Bundesliga before. The league record is held by Bremen (17 goals from substitutes in 2006/07).
  • Robin Dutt has a catastrophic record against Pep Guardiola; he has suffered three defeats in three competitive meetings with a goal record of 2:17. Bremen lost 7-0 earlier this season, while Dutt also suffered two Champions League defeats to Barcelona as Leverkusen coach (3-1, 7-1).
  • Nils Petersen (2 goals in 9 Bundesliga games in 2011/12) and Munich-born Mehmet Ekici (1997-2010 in the youth setup and reserves) both used to wear Bayern colours. Goalkeeper Raphael Wolf was also born in Munich.
