Werder against Bayern - this showdown means something more for Nils Petersen. The opponent after all is the club with whom the 23-year-old has a contract until 2015. Petersen though is playing this season on loan with SV Werder. Bayern come into the game almost like a superpower, having won every match they have played this season whether the German DFB Cup, Champions League or Bundesliga. "Bayern are really in top form at the moment. They haven't dropped a single point, that can't be! They don't really need the points in Bremen," said Petersen with a grin about the Bundesliga leaders' winning streak.

But the striker knows that every streak must come to an end. And that's Petersen's hope for the sixth game day. "Maybe it's time on Saturday against us. There is always a downturn over the course of a season. I hope that the points stay in Bremen," said Petersen, who knows that Bremen will be facing a tough team. "Bayern really strengthened their team before the season. You have to tip your hat to them. I hope that Bayern have a bad day and we have a good one. We need to play solidly in the back, then something could work out."

Only head coach Thomas Schaaf knows for sure how much Petersen may play on Saturday. "Nils really has run a lot recently. That's why I wanted to give him a break in Freiburg. I cannot say now who will play against Bayern," said the Werder coach. "We will see if I play or not," said Petersen. He knows that the competition for the front spot of Bremen's game system is tough, especially after Joseph Akpala scored an important equaliser against Freiburg. "I was happy about Joseph's goal. It was extremely important for the team. We will all push one another in the next couple weeks to come up with strong performances," said Petersen.
