First-half highlights:

7’: We’ve scored, but the offside flag is up! That would have been the perfect start! Weiser coolly scores past Weidinger with a left-footed shot from the centre of the box after being played through by a cute pass from Schmid. However, the wing-back was stood in an offside position, and so the goal is chalked off.

10’: THIS ONE COUNTS! WERDER MAKE IT 1-0! YES! Ducksch sets it up for Füllkrug to thrash towards goal and he hammers it in via the left post to give Werder the lead! Come on!

23’: Regensburg’s Saller crosses from the right-hand side. Weiser’s attempt to clear turns out to be threatening to Pavlenka’s goal, and the keeper has to be alert to tip the ball over the bar!

35’: Regenburg launch a counter-attack as Shipnoski gets played through on the edge of the box and charges towards goal. He shoots, and the effort goes just wide of the left post! That was a close one!

45+1’: Felix Zwayer blows for half-time – everyone take a breath! It’s looking good at the break. Werder are in front but need to keep concentrated and motivated against a strong Regensburg side.

Duckschi makes promotion certain!

Second-half highlights:

51’: Schmid works hard to win the ball back in Regensburg’s penalty box and forces a save out of the Jahn keeper. It falls to Marvin Ducksch on the rebound and he acts fastest to turn it home and make it 2-0!

58’: Füllkrug fires a powerful shot towards goal from the edge of the box, and Weidinger has to cover a lot of ground to get to the ball, and makes a strong save!

67’: A game of pinball begins in Regensburg’s penalty box and it eventually falls to Schmidt who has a go on the half-volley. The ball flies just wide of the right post! Close!

70’: Weiser’s clever backheel falls to Bittencourt who’s waiting at the far post, but his shot crashes into the left post and behind!

90+3’: Zwayer brings the game to a close, and the jubilant celebrations begin. Werder have beaten Regensburg 2-0!

Summary: Werder pick up a 2-0 victory! The Green-Whites started the game well before the visitors grew into the match and created some opportunities for themselves. After Duckschi’s goal early in the second half, SVW began to play with more freedom and secured a comfortable win to send Werder back to the Bundesliga! Let the celebrations begin!
