All-clear for Bargfrede, wait and see for Pavlenka

It's been a calm couple of days at the Weserstadion and on the training pitches as the players have been rewarded some hard-earned rest after the brilliant 3-1 home victory against Wolfsburg. As well as getting the three points, it was also an impressive performance from the boys and the good news does not stop there, as the knocks Pavlenka and Bargfrede took during the match seem to be less...

“Lots of possession, few chances”

A game with few highlights for the Werder players in what was a battle of attrition between the two sides in Freiburg. The players and coach give their assessment of what was a disappointing night in the Schwarzwald-Stadion. The Green-Whites battled well in the second half but their mistakes in the first half and inability to create clear-cut chances leave them ruing the missed opportunity they...

“We weren’t always good but we were clever.”

Florian Kohfeldt’s pulse was definitely racing at the start of the second half. Despite taking a comfortable 2-0 lead into the break, the Green-Whites were unlucky to concede a soft penalty and Wolfsburg pulled a goal back. What followed was, as Zlatko Junuzovic put it, “crunch time” as Wolfsburg looked ever more dangerous. Kohfeldt said, “It wasn’t easy to keep up the intensity through this busy...

It wasn't until the 40th minute, however, that Werder were able to grab their second and Florian Kainz was the man...

"They are really important points for us"

Johansson chips it to Eggestein, who pokes the ball past the onrushing Fährmann and he is taken out by the Schalke ‘keeper. Red? Penalty? No! Werder score the winner. Junuzovic keeps on running and slides the ball home from 3 yards out in the dying seconds to get the decisive goal. 2-1. Ecstasy on the pitch and in the Werder end.

Werder's new-signings are available for Saturday

Two new options. Shortly before the end of the transfer window, Werder were able to secure the services of 21-year-old Milot Rashica. The eleven-time national player might even slot straight into the Werder XI. “Milot is a super player, who will help the team right away. He will definitely be in the squad for the Schalke game and may even start,” said Kohfeldt on his plans for Rashica in the...
