Highlights from the second half:
46th minute: Werder get a shock at the start of the second half: Vargas plays a volley back to Demirovic, who plays in Maier. Pieper, Gruev and Pavlenka try to block his shot in vain. Augsburg take the lead again.
56th minute: SVW starts to have more and more possession. Augsburg want to try and counter swiftly and put in hard challenges.
63rd minute: Werder are counterattacking. After nice link-up play, Schmidt crosses towards Ducksch, but Bauer is alert for the hosts and clears.
72nd minute: Füllkrug breaks through in midfield and plays to Schmidt on the right. Schmidt’s cross is deflected and almost falls for Mitchell Weiser. Gikiewicz, however, after briefly struggling to catch the ball, holds on.
75th minute: Werder are on the move again: After linking up in the midfield, the ball comes to Marvin Ducksch on the left. His shot goes through the legs of the defenders, but just misses the right post.
78th minute: Mitchell Weiser moves in on the right and fires the ball into the middle, where Ducksch passes to Füllkrug. Unfortunately, Werder’s goal scorer loses his balance and misses clearly from a promising position.
82nd minute: Werder try again: this time Schmidt has an effort from more than 20 yards, however, Gikiewicz is alert and keeps the ball in his hands.
89th minute: SVW are giving everything for another equaliser, and are forced to hit long balls into the Augsburg penalty area, so far without any success.
90th+2 minute: There’s a penalty shout. Weiser carries the ball at full speed into the penalty area. Bauer makes contact with the Werder player, who then goes down. Referee Zwayer lets play go on, and the following discussion leads to a yellow for the Bremen bench.
90th+5 minute: Full time. FC Augsburg beat SV Werder Bremen 2-1
