As expected, Dutchman Ryan Gravenberch replaces suspended international Leon Goretzka for Bayern Munich’s away game at Werder Bremen. Otherwise, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel makes no changes on Saturday evening (6:30 p.m. / Sky) compared to the difficult 2-0 win against Hertha BSC a week ago. That means: Thomas Müller and Leroy Sané initially only have one place on the bench. Instead, Tuchel gives Sadio Mané another chance on the offensive.
The hosts have two surprises. Amos Pieper and Romano Schmid play for Milos Veljkovic and Maximilian Philipp. National striker Niclas Füllkrug is out again due to calf problems.
