Dramatic Bundesliga promotion race: This is about Werder Bremen!

Bremen – At 123 years old, SV Werder Bremen is no longer a teenager. But the mood swings this club can cause sometimes take on strange teenage traits. After the Schalke match, there was a mass frenzy of joy in the fan camp, then the bankruptcy of Kiel suddenly caused panic, anger and mental anguish. For days, pessimism reigned on the streets and in the quiet little room when it came to Werder and the subject of promotion. Then came last Friday – and with it Fortuna Düsseldorf’s victory over Darmstadt 98. Since then, the Green Eggs are back in action again, and without any action on their part, they once again have everything in their hands.

This means: if Werder Bremen From the last two matches against Erzgebirge Aue (Sunday, 1:30 p.m., DeichStube Live Tape) and Jahn Regensburg (Sunday 15 May, 3:30 p.m.) a total of four points, then whatever happens can happen in the other stadiums – direct return to Bundesliga It would be great. But still. Thank God! This will be the next crazy twist in Bremen’s emotional mess. But there is a long way to cross. However, there are good reasons to speak of Werder.


The return of important players is often decorated with a “just in time” addition. There must indeed be an increase in Osterdych, because the return of the defensive trio in Bremen cannot be “in time”. defense minister Omar Toprakneighbor Milos Velikovic stat Christian Gross They are all fit again and are candidates for the starting line-up, which increases their quality significantly. The three-man squad should give the squad that structure and security that they lost more and more against Kiel after leading 2-0. That has worked out well for extended periods of the season – and could now become a very deciding factor in the promotion race.

Werder Bremen is back in the German Bundesliga

Werner’s balance sheet

Week after week, this second section proves that results are unpredictable. However Werder Bremen A clear favorite, because Erzgebirge Aue He has previously been relegated and won only five matches. The Saxons are trying to fix the situation after the last 0:6 against Darmstadt, injured captain Martin Manel confirms: “We have to save face.” There is a lot of pressure in the game, the entire club is at a crossroads. And now, at all times, an opponent coach will come to Ole Werner, who really loves Aue. The 34-year-old has not lost in five matches (four wins and one draw) and hopes to stay that way: “Of course I would be happy if the overall positive balance was expanded further.”


Great white hemp makes it unequivocally clear that changes are necessary. there where Werder Bremen The professionals are training otherwise, much of the grass and land has been removed, and a new track is being created. Since the nearby stadium also suffered and the other fields refused, Bremen warmed up for four days at Weser Stadium. Without disturbing the appearance and influences from the outside, but as closely as possible. And Uli Werner He credibly conveys that his players know exactly what he’s about: “We want to win the game and that requires goals and solutions to create chances and efficiency. That’s our focus.” On Sunday we’re going out of the tunnel again, full steam ahead about three points. perfectly. But Werner is sure: “We are endlessly sexy.”

Resurrection of SV Werder Bremen: ‘It is better for us to take care of ourselves’


A peek into the rearview mirror gives the Werder trainer extra confidence. He actually doesn’t like to do it, but if something positive like that comes up, he does. Uli Werner an exception. After all, there were already several stages in which his team was written off. Back when he was in no man’s land schedule For example, in order to start – also against Aue – a trend reversal. Subsequently, Bremen weakened at unfavorable moments, retracted important points and always returned. In the north derby against HSV or on Schalke Settling previous setbacks. After the grief in Kiel and the ball in Düsseldorf, there is now a chance for the next resurrection. It might be the last. The fact that the team knows how to work and shouldn’t just dream about it is a huge mental advantage.

The competition

For weeks they have been confirming Werder BremenClemens Fritz, head of professional football, says this sentence most of the time. Then either Uli Werner or sporting director Frank Bowman. The people of Bremen have done well in this way so far. But in the meantime, the view is beyond the horizon. Because this match day has also proven: that other clubs have their problems, too. The only thing that is clear is that Schalke has moved up thanks to their stunning 3-2 win over FC St. Pauli on Saturday night. It would undoubtedly be dangerous to rely on Strachler out of the competition, but of course they scored in Werder what happened in Dusseldorf on Friday. Especially since with HSV, which has already been written off, another club is now taking part in the important places. Because others allowed it. It promises a final sprint with tremendous tension and great suffering: “Something crazy usually happens again,” Uli Werner just said recently. His eleven could win all of this back and forth with only four points. It looks easy. But what has been easy for Werder this season? (MPU)
