SV Werder Bremen – Borussia Mönchengladbach 5: 1: SVW outclassed helpless Gladbachers



RB Leipzig - 1. FC Köln 3: 1: Nkunku dream goal paves victory against harmless billy goats

In the first Bundesliga home win in 583 days, Werder Bremen played like unleashed.

An intoxicated fan ran onto the pitch before the final whistle, and the east curve deliberately exaggerated the impending storm in the European Cup. After a green and white gala in the Weser Stadium, the enthusiasm knew no bounds – Werder Bremen are stirring up the Bundesliga as a strong attacking climber.

“We are Werder Bremen! Green and white the emblem,” resounded in many voices through the arena after the 5-1 (4-0) win against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday evening, “the champions of the Weser. The phenomenon!” It was the first victory in the upper house of German football in 583 days. A man with a prominent tooth gap had a special part in it: Niclas Füllkrug.

“A huge knot burst, the first half was world class,” said the striker, who scored the first two goals. The discussion as to whether he should even go to the World Cup will gain momentum. “Gap for Germany,” shouted the fans during his sky-Interviews.

After less than a quarter of an hour, the game, which was one-sided from the first minute, was actually already decided. Füllkrug (5th) opened the scoring, in the 13th minute the scorer scored again, it was his six and seven goals of the season, so he alone leads the scorer list.

Gladbach does not change at the break

In between, his strike partner Marvin Ducksch ended a goal drought of 613 minutes. In a phase in which the guests at least occasionally threatened the goal of the North Germans, it was 4-0 – an own goal by Ramy Bensebaini (37th). After the change of sides, Marcus Thuram (63rd) at least scored the consolation goal. Five minutes later, Mitchell Weiser restored the old distance.

Two Bremen records were already set at half-time. A 3-0 lead after 13 minutes was a Bundesliga club record, and the 4-0 after 45 minutes was also a record, and Bremen had never led more at half-time. 42,100 spectators said goodbye to the hosts with thunderous applause in the dressing room.

Gladbach coach Daniel Farke, on the other hand, trudged into the dressing room with a grim face. His protégés let themselves be bought from the kick-off and were far too often only second winners in the one-on-one duels. Significant: Füllkrug won 81.3 percent of his tackles as a striker in the first half.

Regardless of the big gap, Farke sent his starting XI out onto the pitch again at the start. Borussia was now clearly trying harder, the game was more balanced. Bremen didn’t bother quite as early, but still gave the opponent hardly any chance to develop and shifted more and more to the counterattack.

Werder Bremen – Borussia Mönchengladbach: The votes

Ole Werner (Werder Bremen coach): “We got off to a good start and turned the game in our direction early on. It was a successful evening with a great team performance. Sometimes we were close to how we would ideally like to play.”

Daniel Farke (Borussia Monchengladbach coach): “We missed everything in the first quarter of an hour, we weren’t ourselves. We just didn’t put our plan into practice. After being down 4-0, it was clear to us that you couldn’t actually win the game at Bundesliga level can.”
