Werder Bremen lost the catch-up game in the Bundesliga against Eintracht Frankfurt 0-3. The game report of the DeichStube *.
Bremen - The bonus game did not bring a bonus because SV Werder Bremen is simply too weak on the offensive and after three games without conceding the goal is no longer zero. In the catch-up game against Eintracht Frankfurt , there was an unnecessary and at the end rather painful 0: 3 (0: 0) home defeat on Wednesday evening.
After a not only good first half, the Bremen attacked offensive too much and slept in the goals of Andre Silva (60th) and Stefan Ilsanker (81th / 90th). The defeat is a major setback in the struggle for relegation , especially because of the amount . Werder not only missed the jump to the relegation site, but also worsened the goal difference. With five games remaining, everything is still possible.
Werder Bremen with a surprising lineup against Eintracht Frankfurt
Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt surprised everyone with his line-up - maybe even his own team. Despite the 1-0 win at Schalke, there were four changes, two quite prominent ones: goal scorer Leonardo Bittencourt had to be on the bench as well as star striker Milot Rashica . Both, however, had also returned from the Ruhr area, stricken.
"They are operational, but not for 70, 80 minutes," explained Kohfeldt before the game, but did not want to complain. Josh Sargent and Sebastian Langkamp also lost their place. The recently suspended Milos Veljkovic, Yuya Osako, Davie Selke and indeed Fin Bartels , who had not started since his Achilles tendon tear in December 2017, were added to the team. "Fin is very hot," said a grinning Kohfeldt.
Werder Bremen against Eintracht Frankfurt: pure relegation battle
And the coach hadn't promised too much, although Bartel's first action may not have pleased him. For the rude foul on Mijat Gacinovic, Patrick Ittrich was entitled to yellow after two (!) Minutes. The referee from Hamburg was challenged hard, because the 22 professionals on the pitch let it crack. Frankfurt's Martin Hinteregger came next against Maximilian Eggestein and also got yellow (14th). It was pure relegation battle .
After Andre Silva's good chance in Frankfurt, which defused Jiri Pavlenka, Werder Bremen came into the game more and more, which was also due to the playful Osako. The strong Davy Klaassen failed with his deflected shot on the strongly reacting Kevin Trapp (15th), even the somewhat unfortunate Selke could not overcome the Eintracht keeper from an acute angle (23rd).
Werder Bremen: VAR checks - no penalty against Eintracht Frankfurt
Great excitement in the 35th minute: The handball of Frankfurt's David Abraham in the penalty area would have been punished by the video referee (VAR) with a penalty if Klaassen had not previously been sidelined. A millimeter decision in the Cologne basement - a correct one because of Klaassen's hoe.
Shortly before the break, the warned Hinteregger was lucky that he did not have to leave the court with his traffic light card for his follow-up against Theodor Gebre Selassie. Ittrich left it with a warning. Happiness for unity.

Werder Bremen: Andre Silva meets for Eintracht Frankfurt
After less than an hour it was really turbulent. Dominik Kohr scored for the guests, but his foot was offside and the video assistant looked closely (58.). In the 60th minute, however, the help from Cologne did not come to Bremen. The 1-0 from Andre Silva , who had headed after a Kostic cross, counted.
Hasebe's foul on Osako, which had previously led to the Frankfurt ball win in midfield, was subsequently unpunished. Much to the annoyance of Kohfeldt, who raged on the edge of the field. Back to the goal: Gebre Selassie could have prevented the cross, just like Niklas Moisander and Marco Friedl the header. An annoying goal for Bremen, who had defended so attentively until then.
At Werder Bremen nothing works in the end - Frankfurt increases
Werder Bremen immediately changed, Sargent and Rashica came for Selke and Bartels. But the next chance had Gacinovic, whose shot just passed the Bremen goal after a fine solo (72nd). As much as Werder tried, there was hardly anything to go forward. Opportunities ? Absolutely in short supply! Kohfeldt reacted again. Brought Leonardo Bittencourt and Ludwig Augustinsson for Osako and Friedl (76th) in the 76th minute. Bittencourt tried it from a distance, but the ball landed in the east curve (79th).
Then substitute Stefan Ilsanker from Frankfurt made it much better: With his first contact with the ball, he marked the 2-0 (81st). Bittencourt had slept after a corner. When 3: 0 Ilsanker then scored after a free-kick cross (90.). The Bremen team also have the standard problem again - and that could be decisive in the relegation battle alongside the weakness of the offensive. On Sunday Werder not only have to fight against VfL Wolfsburg as well as against Frankfurt, but also attack more dangerously and defend better with standards. (knee)

75.Min: Werder doesn't give up. Moisander tries to storm forward, but loses the ball. Kostic has plenty of time and space to cross again. Toure comes rushing from the back room, who cannot properly process the ball with his head.
72.Min : What a scene from Gacinovic. The fine technician nibbles three opponents and is suddenly free in the penalty area. His low shot is just next to the right post.
70.Min: Hinteregger can get up very slowly.
69.Min: It would have been almost dangerous! After a long throw-in, the ball comes to Gebre Selassie, who cannot assert himself against Hinteregger and Kohr. The two Frankfurters collide unhappily when trying to clarify. Hinteregger is bleeding in the face.
67.Min: Rashica takes the next corner out for his team.

59.Min: Again a scene for the VAR! Moisander tries to clarify and shoots Toure on the applied hand. From there the ball jumps to Kohr and he shoots it in. The Frankfurt, however, is razor-thin in the offside.
55.Min : Osako pulls a foul in the half field against Toure.
52.Min: Frankfurt is picking up a bit of speed. Kamada drives the ball on the left wing to the baseline, briefly lifts his head and looks for Silva in the middle. However, the cross is played too imprecisely in the back of the penalty area. Moisander is careful.
49.Min: The guests slowly feel their way into the opposing half. Kohr has too much space and time a good 20 meters in front of the box - but doesn't know what to do with it. The cross does not pose any problems for Moisander and Veljkovic.
47.Min: The passes are still too imprecise. Osako tries to send Klaassen down, but the steep pass gets longer and longer.

9:19 p.m .: With a 0-0 we say goodbye to the break. In a highly competitive game, the green-whites always tried to control the game. It almost never became really dangerous. Minute 11 tested Silva Pavlenka. Klaassen (15th minute) and Selke (23rd minute) also tried their luck against Trapp - without success. Frankfurt can also take a deep breath: Referee Patrick Ittrich left the second card for a hard entry from Hinteregger, who was already warned against yellow.
9:18 pm: Half time! It goes into the cabin without a break.
45. + 3 min: Bartels shortly before the break with a good conclusion. After a header from Osako, Bartels laid the ball nicely on the right flap and thus past Hinteregger. However, his attempt is too central to Trapp's box.
45. + 1 min: Rode slides Veljkovic from behind into the legs - foul.
45. + 1 min: There is a three minute lookup in half time.
45.Min: Veljkovic has to get out of the center onto the outside track. There he can only stop his opponent Silva by foul.
43.Min: The already warned with yellow Hinteregger against Gebre Selassie the leg stands after a corner. The referee warns the defender again.
42.Min: A few offensive actions would go well with the game.
Werder Bremen versus Eintracht Frankfurt in the live ticker: A lot of duels, few goal space scenes
40.Min : Kamada cleverly puts the ball in the course of Kostic, who, however, cannot overcome the last line of defense of the Bremen team. Well defended by the green-whites!
40.Min: The referee has not had an easy game so far.
37.Min: In Cologne they are currently drawing virtual offside lines. Klaassen wanted to assert Abraham in the penalty area, the latter could only help himself by hand on the ball. Referee Ittrich gets the signal from Cologne and decides to be offside!
35.Min: Bremen is trying to take the initiative in the match. You can tell the green-whites that they absolutely want the threesome.
33.Min: Friedl's corner comes very sharp in the middle, but Hinteregger is on the spot with his head.
33.Min : Osako tries to put the ball elegantly past Hasebe. The veteran, however, is no joke and clears uncompromisingly to the corner.
31.Min: The green-whites try to calm the game down a bit and keep the ball in their own ranks. A long pass in depth cannot be processed by Selke.
29.Min: Both Werder and Eintracht from Frankfurt afford to lose the ball too often.
27.Min: Werder tries his luck on the offensive. The last pass is usually too imprecise.
23.Min: Selke can finally get himself into a final situation. Bartels sends his storm colleague down. Hasebe cannot put it, so the striker tests Trapp again.
21.Min : Kostic tries to find Kamada on the cross in the five-meter space, but the cross is far too imprecise. No danger to the Bremen team.
18.Min : Referee Patrick Ittrich must continue to intervene in many scenes. There are always minor fouls on both sides. A game flow is difficult.
Werder Bremen versus Eintracht Frankfurt in the live ticker: Silva tests Pavlenka, Klaassen tests Trapp
15.Min: First good chance for the green-whites. Klaassen grabs a ball that Osako thought was already lost and pulls off just before the edge of the box. Slightly deflected, the ball is really difficult to hold. Trapp makes really long and directs the ball to the corner.
14.Min: And now there is the next warning. Frankfurt's Hinteregger lets the leg stand at the midline against Maxi Eggestein. Yellow is correct.
11.Min: The first nice attack of the game. Frankfurt's Silva is staged and tests Pavlenka with a low shot. Werder's number one is wide awake and prevents the backlog.
10.Min: The home side have no problems with the standard situation.
9.Min : Kostic takes out the first corner of the game.
7.Min: A real game flow is not yet recognizable. The duel event shapes the event.
5.Min: Both teams do not give themselves an inch of space. Here is really fought for every spot of green.
2.Min : Somewhat over-motivated - Bartels grabs sideways into Gacinovic and unfortunate hits the Frankfurt ankle. Consequently, there is yellow for Bartels!
2. Min: In the first two minutes, the Frankfurt show themselves very aggressive. The guests attack the ball-carrying player extremely early and want to cause quick ball losses.
Werder Bremen versus Eintracht Frankfurt in the live ticker: kick off!
1.Min: And finally the referee whistles the game. Frankfurt can start!
8:27 pm: The teams enter the lawn.
8:25 pm: Just under five minutes until the ball rolls. We are hot for the kick-off!
8:15 pm: "Hope was never gone with us," Werder's trainer Florian Kohfeldt explains to Sky colleagues. "We know that we have to fight for the league by the 34th matchday." The Green-Whites coach expects the same galliness as from previous games. The route should be clear.
8.10 p.m .: The teams use the last minutes before the kick-off to bring themselves to the right temperature.
8:05 p.m .: If the green-whites leave the field today as winners, they would leave the direct relegation ranks for the first time since February.
8:02 pm: It will be exciting to see how Werder's new outfit will present itself.
8:01 pm: Friends, not even 30 minutes and the round synthetic leather rolls on the Weser.
19:56: Wherever the field is tilled, the referee must not be missing. Referee Patrick Ittrich is supported by his colleagues Sascha Thielert and Norbert Grudzinski on the sidelines. Florian Heft appears as the fourth official, while Sascha Stegemann and Frederick Assmuth sit down as VAR in the Cologne video cellar.
19:52: The men of Florian Kohfeldt should go into the match with a good tailwind. After all, the Bremen team got a strong seven points from the past three games. And what you shouldn't forget. There was no (!) Goal. Nevertheless, the home side should be careful not to act too cocky. You should be particularly careful with standards. Frankfurt's Martin Hinteregger is feared across the league for his good header game. Captain Moisander and Co. must be on guard.
7.49 p.m .: Coach Kohfeldt whirled through his series of attacks to make sure that the three points are so important today. Completely new storm: three games to zero, but only scored two goals. Maybe that's why Florian Kohfeldt changed his entire storm. Davie Selke, Yuya Osako and Fin Bartels are happy to prove that they are more dangerous than Milot Rashica, Leonardo Bittencourt and Josh Sargent. Or did Bittencourt (hip) and Rashica (thigh) get worse on Schalke than the coach wanted to admit? After all, both are sitting on the bench and are therefore "operational", as Kohfeldt said in the press conference the day before the game.
7.47 p.m .: Guests from the banking metropolis of Frankfurt are even better positioned. The Adler are currently in 12th place with a win for 1. FC Köln.
7.43 p.m .: Let's take a look at the table: With a threesome, Werder can definitely pass Fortuna Düsseldorf and displace the relegation rank. If the green-whites are also in a good mood, they could displace the 1. FSV Mainz 05 from 15th place in the table. The anticipated 90 minutes bring us certainty.
7.40 p.m .: Back to the starting home team. Warning, goosebumps danger: Fin Bartels is in the starting eleven of SV Werder for the first time in 907 days. At that time, on December 9, 2017, he had torn his Achilles tendon in Dortmund. After that, there were always setbacks due to injuries. Now he should shoot Werder from a relegation zone.
19:37: The game Werder against Frankfurt has been a long time coming. Actually scheduled for March 1st, the match had to be postponed because the Europa League game of the Adler was moved one day to the end. And with the Corona break coming in, we are now coming together this evening to hopefully celebrate the next victory for the Bremen team.
19:35: Four changes in the starting eleven - Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt really surprised everyone. Against Frankfurt he even leaves the match winner of the past few weeks, Leonardo Bittencourt on the bench. The winning scorer against Freiburg and Schalke is also struck. The same applies to Milot Rashica, who is also sitting on the bench. Compared to the Schalke game, Josh Sargent and Sebastian Langkamp can also be found there. For them, Milos Veljkovic, Yuya Osako, Davie Selke and Fin Bartels are starting.

⏰ 8.30 p.m.
7.20 p.m .: Moin friends! We warmly welcome you to the catch-up game Werder Bremen against Eintracht Frankfurt ! We are about to start with the lineups of both teams.
Preliminary report on Werder Bremen against Eintracht Frankfurt:
"We have to!" - For Werder Bremen only one win counts in the catch-up game against Eintracht Frankfurt
It was only a slight consolation, at most, and they didn't really want to let him apply at Werder Bremen at the end of February, because the anger about the recently canceled home game against Eintracht Frankfurt was far too fresh and much too big. The preliminary report of the DeichStube * .
Bremen - At that time, a good three months ago, that SV Werder Bremen's Bundesliga game against Eintracht Frankfurt could become an advantage in the relegation battle at some point and under certain circumstances, but it seemed a long way off. In the meantime, that is exactly what has happened, or rather: Werder has worked out exactly that.
Due to the good to good appearances in the past weeks, which resulted in seven points from three games, the team of coach Florian Kohfeldt has managed to make the catch-up game against Frankfurt a real bonus game. With a win, Werder Bremen can finally leave the relegation zone and at least climb onto the relegation site .
Werder Bremen: "Must win to stay in the fight for relegation"
"We're still behind and we have to do everything we can to win this game, to stay in the fight for relegation," said Kohfeldt, who recently emphasized that it was only for his team this season Endgames there. In the finals against Freiburg (1: 0), Gladbach (0: 0) and Schalke (1: 0) Werder Bremen had presented themselves well recently. Against the Hessians it should go on Wednesday evening from 8.30 p.m. in the (almost) deserted Weser Stadium. Eintracht trainer Adi Hütter had already determined (and also announced publicly) that the Bremen team was "under pressure" before the game. Kohfeldt's smug replica: “He's right, but we've been under pressure for at least four games. We already know how to deal with the situation. "
Generally, the Bremen coach expects a very physical game, which means: many duels and fierce duels. " Eintracht is a team that comes with a lot of force," says Kohfeldt. And in his eyes she is a team that has nothing to do with the relegation battle . With their 32 points, the Frankfurt team are only five points ahead of 16th, but Kohfeldt holds their ability to win at the right moment (as was the case last time in the 2-1 win in Wolfsburg) and their football quality: "With Silva, Kamada, Rode, They have extremely good footballers from Hasebe and Kostic, and giving even a millimeter of space to a Bas Dost in the penalty area is a pretty stupid idea. ”
Werder Bremen against Eintracht Frankfurt: the first of six finals!
Werder's defense is likely to be a lot of work (again). Most recently, the team remained in clean sheets three times in a row, which Florian Kohfeldt does not want to explain with a new wall tactic: “There is no change in the route. Sure at the back, and God will not help at the front. ”What could or should be tonight is a jump in the table, even if the coach says:“ For me, the table is not important at the moment. The important thing is that we get points. "
Head of sport Frank Baumann knows that a streak like the one Werder Bremen has just started cautiously can release new strength. “The mental state plays a big role in sport. The experience that things can be implemented positively helps us. “It has to. Because a lot cannot go wrong during the remaining finals. Especially not in the suddenly valuable Werder vs Eintracht Frankfurt bonus game. "For us there is no longer a network, no double bottom", says Kohfeldt before he gets to the point in just two words: "We have to!" (Dco)
