SV Werder Bremen travel to face 1. FC Union Berlin on the final game of the Bundesliga season on Saturday 27/05 at 15:30 CEST. Head coach Ole Werner spoke to the media ahead of the game on Thursday afternoon.

Werner’s side are in for a tough task away to a side who are unbeaten in 22 games at home. Union Berlin want to use their home strengths to defend their top 4 place and qualify for the Champions League. “They deserve to be at the top end and they’ve always demonstrated their quality,” said Ole Werner. “We’re preparing for an away game against a top side who will to everything then can to consolidate their place in the table, but we also want to get the win.”

Union are in a direct battle with SC Freiburg for fourth place and the remaining Champions League ticket, but won’t get anything for free against Werner’s side, who have a responsibility to honour the competition. “We will try to perform to the best of our ability as in the other 33 games of the season,” said the 35-year-old. “Our task is to get the best out of ourselves and win the game if possible.”

In addition to league standings, another table that is of importance on Saturday is the top scorer chart. Niclas Füllkrug is currently leading the way, but the team are placing priority on the collective. “One thing increases the chances of the other,” said Werner. “It is always nice when a team’s performance leads to personal goals being achieved. Either way, our performance going forward this season is really fantastic.”
