For coach Ole Werner it is clear: If SV Werder Bremen wants to survive at Borussia Dortmund, the green-whites must not only concentrate on defending.

SV Werder Bremen is visiting Borussia Dortmund on Saturday (3:30 p.m. in the DeichStube live ticker) at Signal-Iduna-Park.

After two draws at the start of the season, the green-whites are hoping to get something countable again.

The preliminary report of the DeichStube.

Bremen -

Ole Werner

knows the conditions that will await him on Saturday afternoon, after all it will not be his first visit to this very special place in German football.

The guest cabin, the coach’s bench, the players’ tunnel, the interview zone – the 34-year-old took a close look at all of this in May 2021, as coach of Holstein Kiel.

He and his team lost 5-0 to

Borussia Dortmund

at Signal-Iduna-Park and were eliminated from the DFB Cup in the semi-finals.

However, the current coach of SV Werder Bremen

did not

find out what the complete football experience

feels like at

BVB .

"It was a ghost game without fans in the stadium," recalls the head coach from

Werder Bremen

, who will play with his team on Saturday from 3.30 p.m. in front of more than 80,000 spectators at

BVB

and, viewed in this way, will have his real premiere against

Borussia Dortmund

.

"We can expect a special atmosphere and also a special challenge due to the quality of the opponent," says

Ole Werner

, but leaves no doubt that Werder is determined to make the best possible use of the outsider role in the

Bundesliga

duel.

"It will be important that we don't just defend, even if that will certainly be the basis.

We always have to manage to radiate danger if we want to survive," said

Werder Bremen coach

Ole Werner

, whose team had shown on the first two matchdays against Wolfsburg (2-2) and Stuttgart (2-2) that it can put opponents in the

Bundesliga

in need with determined offensive football at times.

These approaches should also be seen again in the

Bundesliga

game at

Borussia Dortmund

, although

Ole Werner

is of course aware that the opponent will have to do a lot of work on the Bremen defense: "It's perfectly clear that things will go wrong away in Dortmund There will be phases in which the great quality of the opponent is visible," said the

Werder Bremen

coach - and then added: "Every team in Germany and Europe feels the same way."

Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund: Ole Werner calls on the team not only to defend, but also to pose a threat

To put it simply, Ole Werner's

recipe for surviving these phases unscathed reads as follows: keep a cool head.

"We have to keep to ourselves so that we can compensate for the individual quality of the opponent as a group." Means: don't get hectic, implement your own processes and be there for each other on the pitch.

If then a certain amount of luck and a favorable course of the game were to be added - it would certainly not be bad for

Werder Bremen

's chances of not having to leave the field as a loser against

BVB

in the end.

Borussia Dortmund

has collected the maximum haul of six points in the first two matchdays in the

Bundesliga

against Leverkusen (1-0) and Freiburg (3-1) and, given their own ambitions, should

long consider a home game against

Werder Bremen a must.

Of course nobody says that publicly at

BVB

.

Head coach Edin Terzic said during the press conference before the game that Werder was "not a classic climber" and should therefore not be underestimated.

A formulation that the people of Bremen have encountered more often and will encounter more often.

Of course, she doesn't change anything about the "great anticipation for this game" (Werner): Werder feels ready.

In general, as Clemens Fritz emphasized as head of professional football, he would like an exciting title race in the

Bundesliga

, for which a strong

BVB

would of course be important.

"If Dortmund maintains the stability they currently have, I trust them to play for the championship," said the ex-professional of

SV Werder Bremen

, who still hopes that

Borussia Dortmund

may be a little less stable on Saturday occurs last.

A positive side effect from Bremen's point of view:

Ole Werner

, who can also fall back on Amos Pieper and Marvin Ducksch in Dortmund, could then enjoy his first game in the packed Signal Iduna Park a little more.
