50th minute: The Octopus keeps things level with a fine stop. Gentner’s cross is headed powerfully at goal by Andersson, but Jiri Pavlenka reacts brilliantly to tip the ball over the bar.
52nd minute: 1-0 to Union. Werder are caught on the counter as Lenz’s low cross into the middle is tucked away by Marius Bülter.
55th minute: Good response from Bremen. A free kick is headed down in the box by Kevin Vogt and met on the volley by Osako, but his shot is too central and gathered by Gikiewicz.
61st minute: Bittencourt comes close with a curling effort towards the top corner, but again the Union goalkeeper is up to the task.
72nd minute: 2-0 to Union. It’s another clinical counterattack from the visitors. Pavlenka does superbly to save from close range against Andersson, however, the ball falls to Bülter and he manages to squeeze it over the line from a tight angle before Niklas Moisander can clear.
76th minute: Inches away from a goal back! Milot Rashica unleashes a thunderous strike from the edge of the box, but it flashes narrowly wide.
