Nigeria striker Anthony Ujah posed the biggest threat to Bayern Munich defence on Saturday but his efforts was inadequate to deny the Bavarians their ninth successive win as they beat Werder Bremen by a lone goal at the at Weserstadion.
Ujah toiled for 90 minutes to help his side have a share of the spoils in Saturday’s Bundesliga tie, but a solitary strike from Thomas Muller was all the visitors required to continue in their perfect start to the season.
While Bayern indisputably had the most of the possession and dominated play, they were nonetheless stretched to the limits to protect their 100% record as they moved seven points clear at the top of the table.
Pep Guardiola’s side broke the deadlock midway through the first half even though they had not posed so much threat against the highly cautious Bremen side.
Thiago Alcantara was key to the solitary as he was the one who delivered a cross to Thomas Muller, who lost his markers to control the ball before poking in at the front post.
Ujah and his Werder teammates responded well as they struggled hard for the leveller.
The hosts had a sprinkle of chances but they failed to bury same.
A twist could have been added to the game when Manuel Neuer would be forced to come to the rescue with a superb save to keep out an effort from the unmarked Ujah.
Aside the late attempt, Ujah’s movement was often the biggest threat to the Bayern defence but the Bavarians survived the onslaught to cart away all three points yet again.
