SV Werder Bremen lost the Bundesliga match on matchday 17 against Borussia Mönchengladbach 0-1.
Nico Elvedi headed the goal of the day.
The game report of the DeichStube *.
Bremen - How annoying for SV Werder Bremen: The team of coach Florian Kohfeldt was not rewarded for a clever and courageous appearance at Borussia Mönchengladbach on Tuesday evening.
In the end, there was an unfortunate 0: 1 (0: 0) defeat by the Champions League round of 16 on the scoreboard in the empty Borussia Park.
Match winner was Nico Evedi with the only goal of the day in the 66th minute.
And Werder was annoyed that substitute Milot Rashica just hit the post shortly before the end.
One point would have been absolutely deserved and not unimportant in the fight to stay in the league.
Kohfeldt had only made one change in the starting XI compared to the 2-0 win against Augsburg: As expected, Romano Schmid was allowed to start for Davie Selke.
The Austrian not only convinced as a joker against Augsburg with his first Bundesliga assist, but also celebrated a 4-0 shooting festival at Borussia Mönchengladbach in autumn 2019 with Wolfsberger AC in the Europa League.
With the hosts, however, captain Lars Stindl surprisingly only sat on the bench.
And Breel Embolo was removed from the squad by Borussia after violating corona rules - possibly even attending an illegal party.
Werder Bremen against Borussia Mönchengladbach: Great opportunities for Romano Schmid and Felix Agu
SV Werder waited again in their notorious 5: 3: 2 system, let Gladbach come - and was a little lucky that the completely free Nico Elvedi header landed right at keeper Jiri Pavlenka (6th).
Otherwise, Bremen defended everything with a lot of passion.
Pavlenka also risked head and neck on a rather unnecessary excursion, collided with Jonas Hofmann - and saw yellow (22nd).
Bremen were now bolder towards the front, captured many balls, but the counterattack didn't work at first.
But then Schmid took out the hammer, volleyed a blocked cross from 16 meters and forced Yann Sommer to make a brilliant save (27th).
What a chance!
And the next followed ten minutes later.
Keeper Sommer was already beaten and had knocked Josh Sargent off his feet on an excursion a la Pavlenka.
But Felix Agu put too little pressure behind the ball, so that Matthias Ginter was able to clear the line.
Curious, because it was an absolute rarity: Summer saw yellow afterwards, which means that the two keepers were the only players who had been warned until then.
Werder Bremen against Borussia Mönchengladbach: Nico Elvedi scores after a standard to 1-0 for Gladbach
Werder had done it really cleverly before the break - and with an extremely young team.
In Schmid, Sargent and Jean Manuel Mbom there were three 20-year-olds on the pitch.
Agu is also only 21, and Friedl 22. But behind, "Papa" Ömer Toprak, at 31 years of age, also took good care of the rascals.
But only until the 56th minute, then Kohfeldt took him off the field, probably not to risk an injury in the English week.
For Toprak, Niklas Moisander (35) had even more experience on the pitch.
Gladbach coach Marco Rose also reacted, bringing Stindl after almost an hour, who was supposed to rest for the top game on Saturday against Dortmund.
But Werder was just too good for that and Borussia too harmless to attack.
And it actually took only six minutes until Gladbach led - not because of Stindel, but because of another substitute: Laszlo Benes curled a free kick on Elvedi's head - and ultimately the ball bounced off the inside post into the Bremen goal.
How annoying for the green-whites.
Sargent had let the goalscorer go.
Werder Bremen versus Borussia Mönchengladbach: Milot Rashica hits the post in the closing stages
Shortly afterwards, it was just as after work for the American as for the strong Schmid, who had, however, subsided.
Milot Rashica and Selke (74th) came for this.
But it was first Mbom who was stopped by Ginter on the way to possible equalization.
Bremen demanded a penalty, referee Martin Petersen let play continue (75th).
Werder tried everything and almost got rewarded.
But Rashica's great action ended on the post - and the ball did not want to jump into the goal from Sommer's back.
Just like shortly afterwards with the violent shot by Leonardo Bittencourt.
Bitter for Werder, but in this condition Werder can courageously compete at Hertha BSC on Saturday.
Pavlenka - Veljkovic, Toprak (56th Moisander), Friedl - Gebre Selassie, Möhwald (82nd Bittencourt), Agu - M. Eggestein, Mbom (82nd Osako) - Schmid (74th Selke) - Sargent (74th place) Rashica)

Good Gladbach cross towards Plea.
The Frenchman is too small for this ball. Furthermore, there is hardly any danger on the Bremen goal.

Veljkovic clears out both the fifth and the sixth.
Werder has the more dangerous chances, more shots on goal and wins more duels.
This is certainly how Florian Kohfeldt imagined it.
Referee Petersen has done a great job so far.
It is remarkable that both yellow cards of the game went to the respective goalkeeper.
The corner doesn't bring anything.
Now Yann Sommer also gets the yellow card.
The Swiss rushes out of the gate and puts Josh Sargent down roughly.

Curious foul by Pavlenka on Hofmann.

Fortunately, Veljkovic was still there, so the Bremen goalkeeper only sees yellow.
Nice counterattack from Werder.
Again the ball is pushed forward over Schmid and Sargent.
In the penalty area, however, the Gladbachers are too staggered, so that there is no conclusion.
After the Rose-Elf could claim around four-fifths of the ball possession in the first quarter of an hour, Werder made the game a little more balanced.
So far, however, there has been little progress.
The Gladbachers get the next corner awarded after the Werderans had vehemently pounded offside.

a glimmer of hope for today's game?
Werder have only lost two of eight away games so far.
There was a 1-1 draw against Leverkusen and Bayern.
The kick-off will be in ten minutes.
The man at the pipe today is Martin Petersen.
Frank Baumann was just allowed to step in front of the microphone again.
When asked about a possible departure from Milot Rashica, the sports director emphasizes that it is also quite conceivable that the Kosovar will stay in Bremen until the end of the season.
Should it come to a transfer in winter, you shouldn't expect to buy another player.
In the Sky interview, Florian Kohfeldt emphasizes that it is a special strength of the squad that everyone wants to play, but there is no resentment among each other.
He is hoping for a successful game between the lines from Romano Schmid.
The last direct duels speak clearly for the home team from the Lower Rhine.
Werder has not been able to win against Gladbach since August 2015.
The last victory came - thanks to Pizarro - in the cup round of 16 in 15/16.
Starting eleven at that time including Lukimya, Sternberg and Öztunali.
It is noticeable that Gladbach has already gambled
various points after tours.
If you had brought home every lead this season, you would be seven points ahead (!)
For Werder this means: A deficit doesn't mean anything today.
favorites seems to be clearly distributed today.
However, Mönchengladbach lags behind its own expectations in the table.
With 25 points, they are currently in eighth place - just four places ahead of Werder.
Today's game opens the last day of the first half of the season.
Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund will also compete against each other at 8.30 p.m.
The games Hertha BSC vs. TSG Hoffenheim and Mainz 05 vs. Wolfsburg are also interesting for the relegation battle.
An ex-Bremer can at least hope for his use.
Michael Lang was loaned to Werder last season, but over time he hardly played a role.
At Gladbach, too, the Swiss player has not played in the league so far this season.
With Alessaine Plea and Jonas Hofmann, the foals still have two goal-hungry offensive players on the floor.
Striker Marcus Thuram is still banned after his spitting attack.
Breel Embolo has been suspended for today as a precaution due to his nocturnal excursion (contrary to the Corona rules).

As expected, the injured Christian Groß, Nick Woltemade and Niclas Füllkrug are not in the matchday squad, Werder is missing the latter for a few weeks.

Take a look at Munich or Dortmund, even there the result is being put in the foreground, because everything has become a little more difficult. "

Some clubs are struggling to survive.

But even the top clubs have to be careful not to miss their sporting goals because it could be financially very tight.
Werder Bremen against Borussia Mönchengladbach: Thanks to a lot of trust, more offensive again?
So the pressure is great.
And since Werder started the season as almost relegated - and loans and not new players have to save the club, sports director Frank Baumann stated one match day before the end of the
Bundesliga first round

"That should say everything about my appreciation for him." Still, it is about winning the game.
“We'll try,” promised Kohfeldt - and in the end it won't matter to him whether it succeeds with or without a respectable first half.
