Perfect premiere, enthusiastic audience: Werder Bremen's new coach Ole Werner made a good debut in the Bundesliga relegated team.
The Hanseatic League came after a long and convincing performance to a deserved 4-0 (2-0) victory against Erzgebirge Aue and climbed from tenth to ninth place in the second division table.
"It was a good debut, the result was perfect - but there were still some things that we haven't done so well," said Werner after Bremen's greatest success of the season at Sky, but then praised his "really good performance" several times "Guys".
After just seven minutes, midfielder Romano Schmid put the North Germans in the lead with a remarkable flick into the corner of the goal.
Twelve minutes later, central defender Milos Veljkovic extended the lead from close range with a hoe.
Marvin Ducksch (53rd) made it 3-0 with his seventh goal of the season before Niclas Füllkrug (57th) made the final score.
From the very first minute, the hosts took command of the field in front of 15,024 spectators.
The Saxons hardly came from their own half, so the fast deficit was not a surprise.
The guests were lucky that Leonardo Bittencourt (32nd) only hit the right goal post.
During this phase Werner clearly liked what he saw.
Despite continuous rain, the successor to Markus Anfang, who had resigned on suspicion of using a forged vaccination document, almost never went to the covered coaching bench.
The ex-coach of Holstein Kiel applauded several times when his protégés succeeded in conquering the ball.
After the break, little changed in the course of the game.
The team of coach Pavel Dotchev was still very deep, the rare counter attempts were far too hesitant.
After all: In the 52nd minute, Aue came at least to the first corner.
After the fourth goal, La Ola rolled through the arena.
And even after this clear lead, the green-whites acted in forward gear.
Now Werner found the leisure to take a seat on the bench every now and then.
Because only in the 75th minute was Werder goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka seriously tested for the first time.
