A surprising long-distance runner and the sprint to a record

Use this time well

SV Werder have to wait 16 days from the 2-2 draw in Gladbach for their next Bundesliga game. SVW take on TSG Hoffenheim to round off Bundesliga matchday 26 (Sun, 02/04, 17.30 CEST).

In a strong position

SV Werder Bremen travel to face Borussia Mönchengladbach on Friday night (17/03/2023, 20:30 CET). After suffering back-to-back defeats and having managed 30 points from 24 games, some have started drawing parallels between the club’s relegation campaign two seasons ago and now. It’s a narrative that head coach Ole Werner disputed during the pre-match press conference on Thursday. “We have put…

“It’s often things we speak about beforehand”

After a hard-fought match against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, SV Werder had to accept a 3-2 defeat. Even though the Green-Whites were “just ahead” in many periods of the game, according to Ole Werner, being clinical in the penalty area made the difference between victory and defeat. Here are the reactions after the game.

Werder can’t take their chances and lose to Leverkusen

Werder Bremen lost 3-2 at home to Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday evening. SVW had more possession right from the start and showed good intensity and aggression, for which the Green-Whites were rewarded through Ducksch’s goal (30’). The guests from Leverkusen, however, were quick to reply and Bakker equalised (34’) to leave the game 1-1 at half time. In the second half, both teams created lots of…

Make a dream come true

Mitchell Weiser knows that time as a professional footballer is limited. “I’m going to be 29 soon and I’ve only got seven or eight years left in my career if things go well.” After already establishing himself as a regular Bundesliga player, the winger would like to make another dream come true and play at a major international tournament.
