54’: The first real chance of the second half falls to the hosts – Platte shoots from the right-hand side of the penalty box towards the far post, but Pavlenka makes a strong save.
57: GOAL, 3-1 to Paderborn, Felix Platte. The SCP striker gets the better of Pavlenka on this occasion with an outstanding effort from just in front of the halfway line. He catches the SVW keeper by surprise and extends Paderborn’s lead.
59’: GOOOAL, Romano Schmid, 2-3. Werder respond quickly! And this one’s also a worldie! Paderborn’s clearance from the corner only gets as far as Romano Schmid on the edge of the box, who chests it down before slamming the ball home into the top left corner.
66’: GOOOOOOAL, 3-3, Niclas Füllkrug. Füllkrug’s done it! He gets on the end of Platte’s misplaced pass and makes a strong run towards Paderborn’s goal before slotting it home from twenty yards.
70’: Paderborn celebrate a magnificent Platte long shot as they believe they’ve taken a 4-3 lead, but moments before the goal he fouled Toprak, and so referee Welz disallowed the goal.
73’: What is going on here? Marvin Ducksch perfectly curls the ball into the top-right corner from the edge of the penalty box, but Werder’s goal also will not stand. Füllkrug, who provided the assist for Ducksch, was onside when the ball was played to him.
82’: Ducksch has a go from the right side of the penalty box and shoots at a tight angle towards the near post. His shot hits the outside of the post! So close!
84’: Pavlenka to the rescue again for SVW! He saves the first Paderborn attempt from Cuni and then the rebound from Pröger with a reflex save to keep the scores level.
86’: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL, 4-3 to Werder, Ömer Toprak. SCP keeper Huth misjudges the flight of Marvin Ducksch’s corner, but captain Ömer Toprak is alert and bundles the ball over the line. Bremen take the lead for the first time this afternoon!
