Bayern Munich Striker Miroslav Klose Eager To Score Against Werder Bremen

The German international looks to net his first goal against his former club.
Miroslav Klose is hoping to finally get off the mark and break his three season drought when Bayern Munich host Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena later today.

The former Bremen star will be wanting to emulate his recent international form after scoring three times for Germany over the past week. 

Bremen will head onto the pitch without key defenders Per Mertesacker and Naldo who are both injured, meaning Mikael Silvestre will most likely make his Bundesliga debut. 

Klose although knowing this isn't a match-deciding factor, is still extremely motivated. 

"That is not going to make it any easier for us, believe me.
"I know [Bremen coach] Thomas Schaaf and he always pulls somebody out of the hat.

“It’s high time I scored against Werder,” the 32-year-old said.

The German striker however is not guaranteed a place in the starting lineup, with Ivica Olic or Mario Gomez possibly being selected ahead of him.

Star forward Thomas Mueller however was apparently missing from training and could be in doubt for the clash, therefore increasing Klose's chances of starting. 

Schaaf remains positive despite his club's injury list which includes former Bayern striker Claudio Pizarro. 

"No matter how many players we were missing we always played excellent in the past. I hope we are confident enough in Munich to once again prove our ability.

"We have seen the potential this team has. Regarding the implementation of our game plan, we can improve and we are ready to do so."
