Werder Bremen lost the Bundesliga match on Sunday against Borussia MOnchengladbach 1: 3. Here's the single review with grades.
Jiri Pavlenka: If the day against SC Freiburg was a black day for him, then it was against Gladbach a dark gray. In the 0: 1 Pavlenka stuck to the line, then he stormed out of the gate at 0: 2, but did not come to the ball. So again one and a half serious mistakes of the keeper, who is obviously in the form of low. Little encouragement: Fischte Herrmann's free kick from the corner and was after the 0: 3 in further good Gladbach chances on the post. Grade 5
Theodor Gebre Selassie: Had hard to do against Gladbach's left-wing locomotive Thuram. For a long time, Gebre Selassie had little means of stopping the Frenchman. In addition, the Czech did not fit well at 0: 1, let behead Bensebaini. Grade 4,5
Milos Veljkovic: Unwrapped the scythe against Thuram and saw Yellow (38.). The foul was also a sign of a certain helplessness against the physically strong Gladbacher offensive. Veljkovic lifted before the 0: 2 offside. Grade 4
Sebastian Langkamp: At short notice he moved into the starting eleven. Reason: Omer Toprak had to fit in the calf after warming up because of muscular problems. Whether it was the cold start that Langkamp did not find safety? Was uncertain, allowed a lot. Grade 5
Werder Bremen: Maximilian Eggestein continues to search for his form
Marco Friedl (until 81.): Initiated with a chic pass on Bittencourt, although one of the best Bremen attacks at half-time one, but that did not conceal his (once again large) problems on the defensive. Totally passive at 0: 3, when he let Herrmann simply grant. Grade 5
Nuri Sahin (until 73.): The man in front of the defense exercised this time only little influence on the game. Unpleasant foul on Benes, who subsequently injured from the square had. Grade 4,5
Maximilian Eggestein: Keep looking for its shape. Eggestein was just a runner in the Bremen game – but one who forgave the thickest Bremen chance before the break. At the flying ball he was so free that he would have had to hit. Grade 5
Davy Klaassen: Much did not come from him either. It suited his game and the Werder weeks of missed chances that he did not sink the penalty – already his second missed shot of the point this season. Time to think about the penalty takers. Grade 5
Werder Bremen: Milot Rashica against Gladbach again the most striking
Leonardo Bittencourt: In Bremen 4-4-2 he played – as in half time against SC Freiburg – on the left side. From there with some offensive accents – so also the Mabflanke on Eggestein. Later, less and less often in action, but at the end even with a fine Schlenzer to 1: 3. Grade 3,5
Yuya Osako: Closely guarded by Elvedi, but the Japanese, number one attacking station in the Bremen attack, was able to free itself again and again. Bad luck that his hit to 1: 2 connection did not count. Got the penalty out. Note 3
Milot Rashica: Most striking Bremen? Of course Rashica! Two dangerous half-right kills, a free-kick that missed just past the gate, a solo with a dangerous finish, a firecracker from a distance – he really tried everything. In addition, always good ball distributor. Grade 2.5
Benjamin Goller (from 73.): substitution at the score of 0: 3 – Goller's use may be booked as an extension of the experience. Grade –
Josh Sargent (from 81.): See Goller. Grade –

Werder line-up against MOnchengladbach: Friedl may stay, Osako in focus
Bremen – Werder Bremen play at the eleventh Bundesliga match day away against Borussia MOnchengladbach. That's the expected Werder lineup – with Marco Friedl in the starting eleven.
update (10th of November, 12.30 pm): The final starting line-ups for the game Werder Bremen against SC Freiburg are in the live ticker of the DeichStube.
Continue to the previous message: Also on the eleventh matchday of the Bundesliga, the left-back at the SV Werder Bremen Marco Friedl be called. The still young Austrian, who was not entirely innocent at the late Freiburg equalizer a week ago with his foul to a momentous free kick, could use a break quite well, it is missing before the duel on Sunday (13.30 clock) in league leaders Borussia Monchengladbach but simply the alternatives.
Regular Ludwig Augustinsson is not yet available after his knee operation. Maybe he is after the upcoming international break again a topic. And right-back Michael Lang has taken himself out of the game as an alternative. During the week he had noted that for him as a right-footer on the left side such as sudden driving in London – so in the unusual left-hand traffic – is. So there is only the hope that the only 21-year-old Friedl caught a good day in his not unusual performance fluctuations.
Werder Bremen: Yuya Osako playful before Gladbach
After all, the Austrian in the back four has experienced colleagues at his side: Omer Toprak, Milos Veljkovic and Theodor Gebre Selassie. Even Sixer Nuri Sahin is washed with all the waters. Maximilian Eggestein and Davy Klassen are still in eighth positions. There is no way at the front of the trio Leonardo Bittencourt. Milot Rashica and Yuya Osako past. The latter will be the focus of attention.
The Japanese had celebrated against Freiburg after several weeks injury break his comeback and worked very well. Who used it during the week in training of SV Werder Bremen who knows, who knows: Osako can do much more. In the final training he chased the ball into the corner. The 29-year-old seemed enormously determined and playful.
Werder Bremen: Claudio Pizarro could become a feared joker again
A good impression left Claudio Pizarro, The oldie had last in consultation with coach Florian Kohfeldt a break from play and completed a special build-up program. Apparently with success! He could once again become the dreaded joker in Werder Bremen's game against Gladbach (live ticker in the DeichStube).
In the meantime there is no discussion in the gate. In spite of his two mistakes against Freiburg, which he confessed to himself, it remains natural Jiri Pavlenka the number one.
