Werder Bremen Held Bayern Munich To A Draw, First Time In Eight And A Half Months

Bayern Munich could only come from behind to draw at home to Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon.

Maximillian Eggestein gave the visitors the lead just before the half-time break, while Kingsley Coman levelled things up a couple of minutes after the hour mark.

This result brings Bayern’s winning run at home to an end, with it having lasted 13 games, or eight and a half months. Werder finally made Bayern, who had looked unstoppable just a couple of months ago, look human.

Werder had not won away to Bayern in eight years, and during that time they had been on the receiving end of some drubbings, losing 7-1, 6-0, 6-1 and 5-0 to name just four. Visiting the Bavarians on their own patch is often a recipe for disaster, particularly in defence. Just ask Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone.

This result means that Bayern stay top of the Bundesliga table, but the chasing pack of Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are not hot on their heels. For Werder, this result takes them up to ninth.
