BVB against SV Werder Bremen: The analysis

Mostly disorganized first half, because duels, fouls and numerous mistakes and shortcomings on both sides were the order of the day. BVB couldn’t get through the center or the wing because Werder put pressure on the ball carrier early on and was close to the man. Bynoe-Gittens mostly got stuck with his dribbles, Modeste didn’t attract attention at all except when he headed out opposing set pieces (six ball actions after 45 minutes).

Bremen, as recently, brave in the game against the ball and with sometimes high pressing, which led to some good ball wins due to the lack of access by Dortmund’s midfield. As a result, the SVW also became more dangerous in front of the goal than the home side: Stage, Ducksch twice and Füllkrug came to promising conclusions. BVB’s lead, previously completely without a chance to score, was flattering.

Even after the break, Dortmund hardly ever used effective pressing and little order in the game. Werder, on the other hand, combined impressively, occupied their positions well, had almost 70 percent possession of the ball in the meantime and made several good shots without much resistance from Borussia.

BVB usually sloppy counterattacks right from the start. The big difference this afternoon for a long time: Borussia was extremely effective – Guerreiro’s long-range shot made the supposed preliminary decision and came out of nowhere like the goal to make it 1-0. Werder, however, was undeterred, playing further forward and suddenly hitting three very late with similar effectiveness. The dramatic final phase must not hide the fact that Bremen was the better team throughout the game and BVB delivered their weakest game of the season.

BVB – SV Werder Bremen: The voices

Edin Terzic (BVB coach): “We’re talking about a deserved defeat. Nevertheless, it’s brutally annoying when you’re 2-0 up by the 88th minute. We had to defend a lot and created a lot of chances. Despite a poor performance, you have to win the game.”

Ole Werner (Bremen coach): “It was a turbulent game with a better ending for us. Of course there is a bit of luck involved in the end. It wasn’t undeserved for the 90 minutes. We were very clear in the game. The last few minutes were pure emotions, it was crazy. There’s no rational explanation for that.”

BVB vs. SV Werder Bremen: The data of the game

Gates: 1-0 Brandt (45’+2′), 2-0 Guerreiro (77′), 2-1 Buchanan (89′), 2-2 Schmidt (90’+3′), 2-3 Burke (90’+5)

The star of the game: Oliver Burke (SV Werder Bremen)

Provided a lot of steam and determination on the offensive after his late substitution. His late goal finally gave Bremen the crazy victory.

The flop of the game: Emre Can (BVB)

After Dahoud had to leave the field, the order in Dortmund’s midfield went away. Can was unable to restore them over time. Instead, he made the almost usual mistakes, which caused additional clutter. In this form far from a regular place.

The referee: Florian Badstübner

The 31-year-old had a lot of decisions to make and wasn’t always right, but he never made a blunder. Denied BVB an early corner kick after a Dahoud shot (2nd). Correct, to punish the handball of the supporting Hummel as not punishable (55th).
