Big points!

After Wolfsburg, SV Werder Bremen also beat VfB Stuttgart - the DeichStube match report on the 2-0 (0-0) away win of the green-whites.

Stuttgart - What big points in the fight for relegation!

SV Werder Bremen

deservedly won 2-0 (0-0) at VfB Stuttgart on Sunday and thus extended the lead over the relegation place, which the Swabians occupy, to a proud eleven points


And with 27 points, the newly promoted team occupies a remarkable eighth place after 19 matchdays.

Jens Stage

(59') and

Marvin Ducksch

(77') put Werder on the road to victory in Stuttgart for the first time in ten years with their dream goals.

On which the Bremen team can stay in the home game against Borussia Dortmund next week.

The team has the necessary form for this.

Ole Werner reacted as expected to Mitchell Weiser's failure (suspended) and called on Leonardo Bittencourt as a right-hand rail player.

"He was the last player in the squad who ever played it," said the Werder coach with a smug undertone.

Finally, he also had to do without the Weiser alternatives Felix Agu and Manuel Mbom due to injuries.

Changing the system was not an issue.

"It just makes more sense to stick to our pattern," stressed Werner, who otherwise trusted the formation from the 2-1 win against VfL Wolfsburg.

Werder Bremen misses the start against VfB Stuttgart, but then finds its way in better and better

However, the tried and tested did not work at first.

Werder Bremen

seemed almost as sleepy as in the 7-1 swatter in Cologne.

First Niklas Stark made a mistake in the build-up game, then keeper

Jiri Pavlenka again

, who stepped over the ball after a back pass.

But Stuttgart's Chris Führich (6th) and Serhou Guirassy (9th) were unable to capitalize on these mistakes.

There was a need to speak at the Bremen bench, Werner summoned several players at once.

That helped.

Werder now acted more consistently – and finally also more offensively.

Niklas Schmidt

put Bittencourt in the limelight, but failed to save VfB keeper Florian Müller (15').

Ten minutes later, Schmidt could have scored himself, but acted too timidly in the penalty area after a ball passed through from the ball (25').

And another ten minutes later the ball was actually in the goal of

VfB Stuttgart


But referee Frank Willenborg didn't give the goal because Füllkrug had pushed opponent Hiroki Ito slightly but decisively before his perfect header after Jung's cross.

An understandable whistle.

Jens Stage gives SV Werder Bremen the lead against VfB Stuttgart with a dream goal

Werder Bremen

continued to press the button.

Schmidt stole the ball in midfield and ran alone towards the

VfB Stuttgart

goal – but too slowly.

He was caught and put down by Nikolas Nartey just outside the penalty area (40').

Or was the crucial foul inside?

After consultation with the video assistant, referee Willenborg decided on a free kick.


Marvin Ducksch

just missed the VfB case.

A Werder tour would have been absolutely deserved.

Although VfB became dangerous again shortly before the break with chances from Führich and Luca Pfeiffer.

After the change, both teams initially shied away from the risk.

It was better to play across or back than forward.

Until Pavlenka hit the ball far forward.

Ducksch and Füllkrug ensured that the ball bounced through to the penalty area – and there, Stuttgart's Konstantinos Mavropanos unluckily played the assist for

Jens Stage

, who made it 1-0 (59').

With luck, however, the ball slipped over his left instep and landed exactly in the corner.

It didn't matter to the Dane, he celebrated his first


goal with exuberance - just like his colleagues.

Werder Bremen beats VfB Stuttgart - thanks to two dream goals from Jens Stage and Marvin Ducksch

Now the team of ex-Werder professional Bruno Labbadia woke up, gave up his passivity and attacked wildly.

Werder Bremen's

defense was heavily challenged.

The strong Marco Friedl fouled Waldemar Anton and saw yellow for it.

Because it was his fifth warning of the season, the captain will have to watch against Dortmund next week.

Werner reacted and brought in Ilia Gruev for Schmidt (70').

But Werder not only defended, but also attacked – and how!

Füllkrug put the ball on Ducksch at the corner of the penalty area, who circled the ball in his typical way with his right foot into the far corner (77').


dream goal


Marvin Ducksch

almost freaked out after scoring his fourth goal of the season.

But that's not why the game was over for him shortly afterwards.

His coach wanted fresh energy on the pitch and brought in Eren Dinkci and Milos Veljkovic for Ducksch and Pieper (79').

Werder Bremen

coolly managed the advantage over

VfB Stuttgart


Werner was even able to make his Bundesliga debut possible for newcomer Dikeni Salifou.

And then this important victory was celebrated boisterously with the 4,500 fans who had traveled with them in the sold-out Mercedes-Benz Arena (48,000 spectators).

– No, no – it really makes no sense to “look at the table and get out the calculator” before the 19th matchday, emphasizes

Ole Werner


Knowing full well that his

SV Werder Bremen

could increase the gap to the relegation zone in the Bundesliga from a good eight to a proud eleven points with a win on Sunday at VfB Stuttgart (3.30 p.m. in the DeichStube live ticker).

But this calculation comes to the coach much too early, "the season is only half over".

But even Ole Werner can't do without mathematics entirely, which he calculates in his head: "We need at least 16 points to stay in the league.

As long as there isn't a number four in front, we don't have to worry about anything else."

Werder Bremen against VfB Stuttgart in the live ticker: Ole Werner does not fear a drop in tension among his players

This is also the answer to whether

Werder Bremen

could be a little more relaxed after the win against VfL Wolfsburg and a secure tenth place in the no man's land in the table.

"I don't know how I could have gotten the idea to lose tension - oh no!

We just know that every week we are asked to give 100 percent.

Otherwise you are going in the wrong direction.

We're only halfway there,"

Ole Werner

makes unmistakably clear.

Things are going well for a promoted team, but that would really not mean a guarantee of staying up in the league.

Und schon gar nicht solle jemand auf die Idee kommen, den nächsten Gegner zu unterschätzen. Der VfB Stuttgart steht mit gerade einmal 16 Zählern auf Rang 15 – punktgleich mit dem VfL Bochum auf dem Relegationsplatz. Als Feuerwehrmann ist in der langen Winterpause ein gewisser Bruno Labbadia verpflichtet worden. Der ehemalige Profi von Werder Bremen hat schon so manchem Traditionsclub aus der Patsche geholfen. Bei seiner jüngsten Mission wartet er in der Liga allerdings noch auf einen Sieg. Der 1:2-Niederlage bei RB Leipzig folgten Unentschieden gegen Hoffenheim (2:2) und Mainz (1:1).

Schon gelesen? So könnte die Startelf-Aufstellung von Werder Bremen gegen den VfB Stuttgart aussehen!

Werder Bremen gegen den VfB Stuttgart im Liveticker: Ole Werner warnt vor „sehr kompaktem und sehr aggressivem“ Gegner

Da tat der 2:1-Erfolg unter der Woche im DFB-Pokal-Achtelfinale beim Zweitligisten SC Paderborn schon richtig gut. „Der VfB ist seit dem Winter sehr gut drauf. Für die Leistung, die sie gezeigt haben, haben sie zu wenig Punkte geholt“, urteilt Ole Werner. Wie genau sich die Schwaben unter Labbadia im Vergleich zu Vorgänger Pellegrino Matarazzo spielerisch verändert haben, mag der Coach des SV Werder Bremen zwar nicht so gerne beschreiben, erklärt den Gegner aber dennoch ausführlich: „Der VfB verteidigt sehr kompakt und sehr aggressiv. Im eigenen Ballbesitz versuchen sie, die Geschwindigkeit, die sie auf allen Positionen haben, in die Waagschale zu werfen. Sie wollen aus hektischen Spielphasen heraus gefährlich werden. Zuletzt waren sie auch bei Standards gefährlich.“

Werder Bremen muss also auf der Hut sein. Das gilt speziell auch für Konter. Da gehören die Bremer zu den anfälligsten Teams der Liga. Werner schiebt es allerdings auch auf die eigene Spielweise, die Ballbesitz und ein Herauskombinieren aus der eigenen Hälfte vorsieht. Da könnten gerade einem Aufsteiger folgenschwere Fehler unterlaufen. „Da haben wir uns aber weiterentwickelt“, betont Ole Werner und hofft auf eine Fortsetzung dieses Prozesses. Was ohne den gesperrten Mitchell Weiser freilich etwas schwieriger werden dürfte. Wer ihn auf der rechten Seite ersetzen soll, lässt der Coach bewusst offen, um dem Gegner ein kleines Rätsel zu bescheren.

Werder Bremen kann sich in Stuttgart auf bis zu 4500 mitgereiste Fans freuen

From Bremen's point of view, the Mercedes-Benz Arena should also offer a small surprise.

Because it will be rebuilt again - this time in time for the European Championship 2024. There is a new grandstand for 130 million euros.

"It's missing a bit of the stadium," Werner also knows: "But it's always very atmospheric there.

And the away block is full again.

So it should be loud.” Around 4,500 fans of

SV Werder Bremen

are expected in the sold-out arena – and according to

Ole Werner

, they can expect at least one thing, regardless of the table: “Stuttgart are in a good mood, we’re in a good mood – that can be a really good soccer game.” (kni)
