It remains exciting at SV Werder Bremen after the vaccination card affair about the resigned coach Markus Anfang.

Berlin - There are turbulent days in Munich and Bremen.

In the European club competitions, the group games continue.

The German women want to continue their flawless streak in World Cup qualification.

FC St. Pauli wants to return to first place in league 2 in the catch-up game.

The look at the football week:

FC Bayern:

Turbulent days are on the agenda for the record champions. After four more professionals have to be quarantined after Joshua Kimmich, coach Julian Nagelsmann has to travel to Kiev with a rump squad for the Champions League game against Dynamo on Monday. The infected but vaccinated defenders Niklas Süle and Josip Stanisic are still out. In addition to the corona vortex, there may be an exciting general meeting on Thursday. Some Bayern fans then want to force the controversial issue of Qatar onto the agenda. The sponsorship with Qatar Airways should end as soon as possible.

Champions League:

Dortmund is under heavy pressure at Sporting Lisbon after the two defeats against Ajax with a total of 1: 7 goals. Conversely, a victory because of the direct comparison won with the Portuguese would also mean safe progress. The group win is no longer possible. For Leipzig, the game in Bruges is already a final. The runner-up has to win in order not to be thrown out of European business as the bottom of the group. VfL Wolfsburg could even afford a defeat at Sevilla FC on Tuesday - and would then still have the chance to qualify for the round of 16 before the last group game against French champions Lille (December 8).

Europa League and Conference League:

Eintracht Frankfurt can secure the group victory in the Europa League early with their fourth win. In the home game against Royal Antwerp, coach Oliver Glasner's team is the clear favorite on Thursday (9 p.m.). Bayer Leverkusen would not only be further with a win against Celtic Glasgow, but would also be first. Which is particularly important this year because it would mean going straight to the round of 16 and skipping the second round. Union Berlin travels to Maccabi Haifa in the Conference League. With a win on Thursday (6.45 p.m.) everything is still possible for the iron, a draw would have to be calculated pretty well, a defeat would be sealed in the group stage.

What's next at Werder?

- After a turbulent weekend, some calm should return to the Weser. The bosses around sports director Frank Baumann hope to be able to present a successor to Markus Anfang as soon as possible. After all, the game at Holstein Kiel is already on Saturday. Also in the vaccination card affair about the resigned beginning there should be new findings in the next few days. "To what extent the vaccination card is actually wrong, we will be able to clarify promptly," said the responsible public prosecutor.

Qualifying playoff draw:

Italy versus Portugal? That would be a real horror scenario for both the current and the former European champions. On Friday (5 p.m.) in Zurich, the games of the playoffs in the World Cup qualification for Qatar will be drawn. Portugal and Italy, each only runners-up in the group, have home games in the semi-finals, but could face each other in a possible final. Poland, Sweden and Austria are also in the lottery pots. The duels for the five World Cup places in Africa and the playoffs of the four confederations Oceania, Asia, South America and North and Central America will also be drawn.

World Cup qualification women:

The DFB selection will play another game on Friday (4 p.m. / ZDF) in Braunschweig against Turkey on the way to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

After a long break from injury, defender Marina Hegering from FC Bayern Munich is back in the squad.

The team of national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg leads Group H with four wins from four games and a goal difference of 20: 1.

Only the first in the group qualify directly for the World Cup final tournament.

The runners-up play for two more places in the playoffs.
