MOnchengladbach – relegation battle! It is the word that SV Werder Bremen absolutely did not want to be associated with this season. Relegation battle – this is something that lies behind the team. Thought.
But after eleven matchdays and around a third of the season, it looks like Bremer then again so that they have to count among the endangered teams. After the 1: 3 (0: 2) defeat at the top Borussia Monchengladbach there are only two points left, the self-proclaimed European Cup contender from relegation place separate. From alarm mood can at SV Werder Bremen Nevertheless, there is no question.
It was once again one of those games, at the end to explain why Werder on the one hand by individual mistakes Goals for the opponent and on the other hand with their own chances to begin with nothing – one of Davy Klaassen missed penalty included (52.). "I can not hear it myself," began coach Florian Kohfeldt his execution, "but it is the consequence, with which we defend our goal and with which we must seize our chances." But this consequence missed the coach now for seven matchdays. Seven game days, in which the Bremen have remained without a victory and from 21 possible points only five have brought.
Werder Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt: "We are ready to fight for points"
That is not enough to dream of Europe, everyone should be clear. Kohfeldt did not want to chant about any goals inside Borussia Park: "That does not help us. We must just win games again"But because that does not work at all, the people of Bremen have to ask themselves questions about the relegation battle please. "We're ready to fight for points," Kohfeldt said, "and we'll be watching closely what's happening in the table below and what's in the middle. We hope to get back to it. "
It's a statement that shows the coach the danger that threatens from below, does not yet make it its main theme, but keeps pushing it upwards. He does not do it out of defiance, but out of conviction: "That the Doubts become louderbecause the results are missing, we have to live with that. We are also vigilant. But we are also totally convinced of our way. Anyone who has seen this game against Gladbach can not seriously say that our way is wrong. "
Werder Bremen: Gross errors in the defense pave Gladbach 3-0 lead
The Werder phenomenon, however, is that performance in the field – even against top teams – and the table situation continue to diverge. One thing stays good, in Gladbach maybe only medium, the other is getting worse. Nevertheless, Kohfeldt warned: "We must not be distracted now, then the results will come." So it looked Leonardo Bittencourt, who found very clear words: "No matter what comes to mind, we stand by our man and will walk this path together. There's no point in questioning everything now. We do not play that bad, We just do not win. "
As in Borussia Park. After one hour the Bremen were with goals from Ramy Bensebaini (20) and Patrick Herrmann (22/59) with 0: 3 behind. With gross errors in the defense Werder had dug this deep pit himself. "And it may have looked like we were being overrun," Klaassen said, "but we also had ours Giant opportunities"For example his weak penalty shot, the Gladbach keeper Yann summer parried (52.). Or possibilities of again very strong Milot Rashica, also a flying-head ball from Maxi Eggestein, Opportunities enough to turn the direction of the game. Werder forgave them all. Only Bittencourt met, but there was already the injury time. "We could have overturned the match," sporting director complained Frank Baumann and said: "As for commitment, performance and Aufbaumen, I can not blame the team."

The world of Werder Bremen is no longer full of beautiful prospects, but rather full of threats
But what helps if the third standard situation leads to 0: 1? If goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka in the 0: 2 mistaken through his own penalty area? If Marco Friedl when 0: 3 just does not intervene? "As a team, we hold the likelihood of winning games, but in some situations we can not do it," Kohfeldt described as a thread running through the games: "And for the 450,000th time we've got one Standardgegentor as a topic on the plate. That costs us the points. "
The Sum of errors, the Werder Bremen is doing so, is so great that in addition to the positive perspective in the table at some point, the belief in their own strength, their own way could be lost. "Of course, this moment can come," said himself Davy Klaassen"But that is still very far away."
Very close to it, however, is the bad feeling with which the Bremen after the 1: 3 in the last International break of the year. Because the world is no longer full of beautiful prospects, but rather full of threats. "The pressure on us is getting bigger now, is normal," admitted Frank Baumann one. Next up is FC Schalke 04 and VfL Wolfsburg – and then it's time to go roaring or snapping off. (CSA)
Watch the match report for Werder Bremen 1: 3-defeat against Borussia MOnchengladbach here:
At Werder everything goes wrong in Gladbach
MOnchengladbach – A blatant goalkeeper, a fearful defense (and not only in standards) and an unbelievable odds – the SV Werder Bremen has on Sunday afternoon in league leaders Borussia MOnchengladbach a very bad 1: 3 (0: 2) Defeat itself einrockt. The game report of DeichStube *.
Ramy Bensebaini (20th) and Patrick Herrmann (22nd and 59th) met for Gladbach, Leonardo Bittencourt (90. + 3) scored the late winner for Werder Bremen, His captain Davy Klaassen, on the other hand, failed with a penalty kick at the towering Yann Sommer (53).
In this constitution is the intended goal Europe definitely no longer an issue for Werder. After now seven winless games in a row and only eleven points from eleven games, the Bremen have as a table-14. rather pay attention, not entirely in the relegation battle to get to. The advantage over the dangerous zone is only two meters.
Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt had in his starting eleven actually renounced surprises, he wanted the players who had started a week ago against SC Freiburg (2: 2), trust. But after the warm-up it was suddenly said: Omer Toprak can not play because of muscular problems at the calf. The newcomer from Dortmund has no luck at Werder. For him moved Sebastian Langkamp in the central defense.
Werder Bremen: Again a standard goal and goalkeeper error
The Bremen defense was immediately in the spotlight, had lost sight of Marcus Thuram, who narrowly missed the goal from five meters (1.). On the other side failed Milot Rashica to keeper Yann summer (3) – it should be a permanent duel this Sunday. Also at Werder Bremen the goalkeeper was in focus, but not positive. After a free-kick from Laszlo Benes remained Jiri Pavlenka again on the line, Ramy Bensebaini could einkOpfen unimpeded to 1: 0 (20). Theodor Gebre Selassie had not been able to stop him. Another goal against a standard, this weakness is hard to believe.
Werder was the shock of the annoying residue still in the bone, when it rang again in his own box. Only 107 seconds after the 1: 0 made Patrick Herrmann the 2: 0 (22) – with the kind support of Pavlenka. The otherwise careful guard had hurried out of the gate after a long ball by Matthias Ginter and misjudged himself badly. Instead of the ball he hit Thuram, the ball landed at Herrmann, who could shoot into the empty goal. What's up with the 27-year-old? Already at 2: 2 a week ago against Freiburg had Pavlenka twice goofed – and now again.
Werder Bremen: video evidence! Referee takes goal back
But Werder Bremen fought and played back especially. After a great combination met Yuya Osako (27.), but the Video Wizard reported to referee Tobias Stieler to the screen on the sidelines. And the referee had seen a foul from Rashica to Denis Zakaria at the start of the goal, taking the hit back. A tough decision from Bremer's point of view, because Zakaria had first sought physical contact, Rashica got into trouble and then hit his opponent down the leg. Is that really enough for a clear wrong decision and thus the intervention of the video assistant?
It was remarkable how Werder dealt with it: The decision seemed to inspire the guests. They pushed for the connecting goal. But the strong-bearded Rashica did not make a great debut after a great solo (32.) and found his master again in summer (41.). Shortly thereafter missed Maximilian Eggestein from five yards head the actually safe goal, again summer had responded brilliantly (41).
Werder Bremen: Davy Klaassen misses penalty against Gladbach
This summer brought Werder to the mind, because in the 53rd Minute parried the Swiss also one Penalty kick by Davy Klaassen, The Dutchman had aimed in the middle, the summers flown into the corner just got the foot up. The Penalty Decision was more than controversial – and again the video referee played a big role. Bensebaini had unintentionally kicked Osako on one foot on one step back – and the ball was somewhere else. Stieler decided according to the TV images on penalty. Ultimately, it remained without consequences for the result, because Klaassen already missed his second penalty this season. He also failed at Union Berlin.
But it got worse Werder Bremen: In a counterattack, the anxious Marco Friedl did not want to attack Herrmann, who then shot in for a 3: 0 (59 '). That was the preliminary decision!
Only Kohfeldt still believed in the change, brought the offensive Benjamin Goller and Josh Sargent for the defensive Nuri Sahin and Friedl. Without real effect. In the end, Werder could even be happy not to have scored more goals. In the end, the Bremen were in the majority, Bensebaini had after a rude foul on Bittencourt the second yellow card seen (87.). With a fine Schlenzer succeeded Bittencourt after all, a little bit of earnings correction.
Werder Bremen: Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Langkamp, Friedl (81st Sargent) – Sahin (73rd Goller) – M. Eggestein, Klaassen – Bittencourt, Osako, Rashica.
MOnchengladbach: Summer – Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini – Kramer (34th Hofmann), Zakaria – Benes (59th Neuhaus) – Herrmann, Plea (81st Stindl), Thuram.

27. Min: Gladbach now has everything under control.
26. min: Frustrating score, but Werder simply has too little access. Pavlenka also weak as in the last week.
22 min: double strike MOnchengladbach. Where Pavlenka should have come out, he does it now completely unnecessary and too hesitant. Herrmann scores to make it 2-0 for the home side after Ginter plays a long ball in the lead. Thuram plays on Hermann, who has no trouble to hit the empty goal. Totally unnecessary goal.
20 min: This standard weakness is unbelievable. After a free kick from the right side of Benes Gladbach leads 1-0 by Ramy Bensebaini. Pavlenka remains stuck on the line, Gebre Selassie loses the header duel and the Algerian heads to the lead.
19. min: Cheerful games in Borussia Park. You can tell the teams that they both plan to win this game.
16. Min: Counter of the Gladbacher. Lightning fast, the foals cross the midfield and look in the middle Thuram, who comes only with the hoe to the ball. No danger to the goal of Jiri Pavlenka.
15 minutes: Rashica takes the free-kick and pulls him past the left side of the goal. Too bad.

13th min The corner does not bring anything.
13th min Elvedi clears for Gladbach after Bittencourt broke through on the left. Since the Werder newcomer hesitated too long. After all, there is a corner for Werder.
11. Min: Leo Bittencourt has been entrusted with some defensive tasks today. So far he's doing very well.
8. Min: Free-kick for Gladbach from the half-field. In the season so far Werder has always problems with standards. The Benes free kick but this time no danger.
6th min Here is directly in there fire. After the two big chances in the first few seconds, it has now become a bit quieter, but the beginning promises an exciting game.
3rd min: On the opposite side Rashica comes from about 16 meters to the conclusion. Yann Sommer is on hand.
1st Min: After just 40 seconds, the first huge opportunity for Gladbach. Marcus Thuram, son of the World and European Champion Lilian Thuram, is flanked from the right. The assistant shows wrongly offside.
1st Min: Gladbach starts. The game is running!
1.30 pm: There is currently a minute of silence for the deceased ten years ago national keeper Robert Enke.
13:29: The teams have entered the lawn. It starts immediately. Referee of the game is Tobias Stieler.
13:27: Interesting that Kohfeldt Sebastian Langkamp prefers Christian Gross despite the praise of the last weeks. Let's hope it's the right decision.
13:25: This change shortly before the start of the match fits the previous season of the Bremen newcomer. The central defender, who came from Dortmund, was unhappy in the field. In addition, he is not struck today for the first time. To date, the 30-year-old Turk is not yet the hoped-for gain.
13:22: Omer Toprak falls short because of muscular problems in the calf. Sebastian Langkamp plays for him instead.
13:15: If you still want to regain the connection to the front seats, Werder would have to start again to win. Recently there were always guides, but in the end only draws.
13.07 clock: The balance of recent years does not speak for Werder. Since 2015, Grun-weib has not been able to win against the foals.
12:58: Werder falters instead. Eleven points after ten games are certainly not what you had imagined. Selsbt with a victory today, they are still five points behind the season goal Europe.
12:55: For the Bremen opponent MOnchengladbach it is currently running really well. For four matchdays you greet from the top of the table. Newcomers such as World Champion's son Marcus Thuram are fully hit and the coach Marco Rose has apparently arrived directly on the Lower Rhine.
12:47: MOnchengladbach starts today u.a. with Plea, Herrmann and Thuram. If things are not going as expected, offensive Stindl, Raffael and Traore are still waiting for their bets.
12:44: Claudio Pizarro is also back on the bench.
12:38: Werder coach Florian Kohfeldt dispenses with his starting eleven on surprises, trusts the players who had started against SC Freiburg (2: 2) a week ago. So Marco Friedl is allowed to keep his place, although he did not really convince. But by the failure of Ludwig Augustinsson there is no real alternative on the left defense. Also in the system, Kohfeldt relies on proven – so his 4: 3: 3. Where Nuri Sahin certainly slip as a six-times between the center-back and make the four-a five-piece chain.
This is how Werder plays: Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Toprak, Friedl – Sahin – M. Eggestein, Klaassen – Bittencourt, Osako, Rashica.
Our starting grid against the @borussia!

On the preliminary report of 8 November 2019:
Werder Bremen: Coach Florian Kohfeldt also vehemently defends his course against Gladbach
For SV Werder Bremen there were in the Bundesliga last five draws in series. Now, on Sunday (13.30 clock), the league leaders Borussia MOnchengladbach will finally win again – the preliminary report of the DeichStube *.
Bremen – Florian Kohfeldt can do that. Pretty good, even what is undoubtedly an advantage in his job: the coach of SV Werder Bremen is in a position to recognize even in unsightly moments directly opportunities – just happened again, after the bitter 2: 2 against SC Freiburg. "Such an experience always offers the opportunity to put your finger in the wound. And it guarantees the increased willingness of all involved to deal with it, "said Kohfeldt, who with his players before the tough away game at league leaders Borussia Monchengladbach (Sunday, 13.30 clock, for the first time for Werder Bremen in the stream on DAZN) has spoken a lot and above all fundamentally.
"It was about questions like: how do we deal with such moments? How do we want to act as a team? ", Reported Kohfeldt, who – and that is the answer to these questions – from Werder's previous course, from the the idea of football did not change a centimeter would like to. "I'm not going to break that up now," Kohfeldt said Friday. There was another sentence, absolutely and unmistakably: "Our basic approach, I'm sorry, is not negotiable."
Werder Bremen: Coach Florian Kohfeldt emphasizes – "do not let us spoil our way of playing"
Werder Bremen have played in the Bundesliga five times last time, which was around the Weserstadion nobody satisfies. The team has been on the spot for weeks as far as the table is concerned. Although it is point-wise progress, but only in the smallest possible steps. It's frustrating. Also Kohfeldt. Less the three 2-2 games in Dortmund, Frankfurt and Leverkusen. All the more for the 1: 1 against Hertha and that bitter 2: 2 against SC Freiburg, both in their own stadium. "Most of the time in the last five games, we had the feeling that we had the Victories taken away have, "said Kohfeldt.
In fact, the Werder football could have been successful, the chances were there, the play has always worked, just not the full distance. However, that will come, Kohfeldt is sure of that, he works on it every day – and he has his pros against it before the game Borussia Monchengladbach Now reminding, "I said to the team this week," Be aware that playing football is special, as we play football. That is not a matter of course, there is a lot of work in it. We will become ourselves do not let it break and do not question it. "Especially not now, where Werder is against the team of the hour. That means: Also in Gladbach wants Werder Bremen behave courageously, the opponent, as Kohfeldt calls it, "give moments that he does not want in his game".
Florian Kohfeldt wants to win against Borussia MOnchengladbach with Werder Bremen
Whether a renewed 2: 2 not in Gladbach a good result would be the coach during the press conference asked before the game. His answer: "I never go into a game with the goal of reaching a draw, but always wants to win, This is also the clear goal in Gladbach. It becomes very important that we radiate courage. "Against a team in which self-confidence" is not exactly in short supply ". Sure, Kohfeldt has Gladbach's late 2: 1 on Thursday night against the AS Rome seen. The winning goal of Marcus Thuram, "The high risk-taking, extreme dynamism and speed".
But he also saw "the possibilities against them." And all this will have been told to his players. These in turn – to conclude Florian Kohfeldt's ability to recognize chances to come back in difficult moments – after the 2: 2 against Freiburg should have listened very attentively. Because, again Kohfeldt: "After success, a team is much less receptive than after moments in which it sometimes hurt. And it hurt against Freiburg. "(Dco)
