49’: Ducksch crosses into the box from a free kick, and Klaus Gjasula almost deflects the ball into his own net. Marcel Schuhen is on hand to claw the ball out for a corner.
50’: 3-0 to Darmstadt. A misplaced pass from Werder makes it easy for the hosts. Marvin Mehlem charges towards Pavlenka’s goal and slots it into the bottom-left corner.
57’: Finally, some good play from SVW! Woltemade sends it long for Njinmah to run on to, who then has a go from around 15 yards out. However, the shot is too weak and is a comfortable save for Schuhen.
60’: Mathias Honsak gets on the ball just outside Werder’s penalty area, but his eventual shot fortunatley sails over the bar.
62’: Christian Groß handles the ball in the area, and the referee is alerted of this by VAR and goes to the screen before awarding a penalty to the hosts.
62’: 4-0 to Darmstadt. Pavlenka chooses the right side, and almost gets a hand to the ball, but Tobias Kempe’s penalty finds the back of the net for Darmstadt’s fourth.
70’: Goal for Werder. A nice move from SVW brings a goal back! Weiser drives down the wing and crosses it in, before Deman rises highest to head it in for 4-1 and open his Bundesliga account!
77’: A Darmstadt cross finds its way to the back post, where Mathias Honsak is well poised, but his effort fortunately goes off target.
79’: Werder get a second through Milos Veljkovic. Naby Keita plays a perfect ball through to Ducksch, who lays it across the box for Veljkovic to tap home and halve the deficit!
82’: The hosts are on the attack again. A lofted pass finds Mathias Honsak, who then lets fly and shoots just wide of the left post.
88’: The atmosphere has changed, SVW are really pressing and looking for their next goal. On the other hand, Darmstadt are keeping it tight at the back. Justin Njinmah places an incredible cross into the penalty box, and Dawid Kownacki gets up to try and head it past Schuhen. However, his header is inaccurate and poses no problem to Darmstadt’s Number 1, who safely collects.
90’+6’: Full time.
