Happy winners, disappointed losers! Werder win LIGA total! Cup 2012 against Dortmund in Hamburg.
Werder Bremen's newly-formed team started the new season by winning the LIGA total! Cup 2012. The Green-Whites and Borussia Dortmund were even at 3-3 after regular time before Werder won in penalties with an 8-7 victory. WERDER.DE collected reaction after the game.

Clemens Fritz: "That was a very, very good and important test for us. It will naturally give us confidence. Altogether I would rather have had it be the first match day of the season already."

Thomas Schaaf: "The beginning was very good. Nearly everything worked out. But after 15 minutes nothing seemed to work any more and lots of things went wrong. We found things everywhere to improve upon. I was happy that not only did the results go our way in this tournament but also our performance - even though we weren't talking about the world club cup. Until now we have worked superbly and played well together as a team. Everyone has the courage to go after it. We are on a good path. The mood is unbelievably positive."

Klaus Allofs: "We are still missing a lot. The beginning was good. After that it was more bad than good. We cannot overestimate either. We are happy that we were able to win twice. But it's not a title that will get us any honour or fame."

Sebastian Prödl: "The hard work is bearing fruit. These were two intensive and spectacular matches that absolutely had a fighting passion. Now we have to see to it that we do more spectacular things. The best thing would be to take the good things from the tournament and leave the bad things here."
