After the 3-1 defeat to Union Berlin, everyone knew that a different approach would be needed as the club plays for survival in the final three matches of the season. Werder Bremen already showed more fighting spirit during the cup semi-final against RB Leipzig: “In training we have played a lot of football this week, we’ve put in work on challenges. Everyone wants to show that he should play. There’s also been a bit of focus on tactics but it’s more on getting into the tackles,” said Milos Veljkovic on Tuesday. That bite to the tackles is important for the Werder players’ mentality.
