Bittencourt and Rashica available for Frankfurt

Head coach Florian Kohfeldt delivered some very good news and one piece of bad news on Tuesday afternoon. “Everyone, who played against Schalke, is fit,” Kohfeldt in his press conference before the midweek fixture against Eintracht Frankfurt. This also applies to Leonardo Bittencourt and Milot Rashica, both of whom were subbed off in Gelsenkirchen.

More important than the clean sheet

Three games, zero goals conceded. One person who is particular pleased with this record is Jiri Pavlenka. It’s now the first time the Czech goalkeeper has managed to keep three consecutive clean sheets during his time at the club. Nevertheless, Pavlenka is still Pavlenka.

Difficult but deserved

“A deserved, but difficult win.” That’s how head coach Florian Kohfeldt summed up his side’s 1-0 win over FC Schalke 04. Leonardo Bittencourt’s beautiful first half effort was enough to earn his side the win, making that seven points from the last three matches for the Green Whites. Three more huge points in the relegation battle.

We came, we fought, we conquered

A win away at Schalke! SVW have risen to the task in the next step of their relegation battle with a 1-0 win over S04. Leonardo Bittencourt scored the only goal of the game with a beautiful effort after 32 minutes. It was largely a game of two halves in the empty VELTINS-Arena. After a dominant opening period from the Green Whites, David Wagner’s side came out a completely different team in the...

Positive aggression and team spirit

TEAM SPIRIT. That’s the message written in big white letters on the green masks worn by the Werder players and staff members during these times. Whether that be on arrival at the stadium, as a substitute or whenever the necessary distancing measures cannot be maintained. The mouth and nose are constantly being protected. Team spirit: there can hardly be a better phrase to describe what’s important...

"It's our responsibility"

Marco Friedl has now been playing for SV Werder Bremen for more than two years, and he can safely say that the current season has been the most difficult one so far for the 22-year-old. However, the U21 Germany international has been fighting against it, which was clear to see in the two most recent outings. At left-back, he helped ensure a clean sheet for the Green-Whites in both games. After the...

Team's best interests at heart

"It’s not about our personal needs, it’s all about the team’s success," underlined Christian Groß the day after his strong display at home to Borussia Mönchengladbach.

“We deserved more”

It was an almost perfect performance from the Green-Whites against Borussia Mönchengladbach at the wohninvest WESERSTADION on Bundesliga Matchday 27. However, in the end they had to settle for just the point. There was one thing that certainly wasn’t missing from Florian Kohfeldt’s side on Tuesday evening: passion. “If we go into the last seven matches with this same mentality, I’m certain we will...

A big point against Gladbach

Werder Bremen just missed out on their second home win of the season. The Green-Whites put in a thoroughly convincing performance against Champions-League hopefuls Borussia Mönchengladbach but just couldn't finish their chances as they drew 0-0 at the wohninvest WESERSTADION. Neverthless, it was a draw that will give the team confidence.
