Bremen – An unusual action from the media department made it clear how deep the disappointment was at SV Werder Bremen after the home defeat of 2: 3 against Holstein Kiel. On Saturday, the club urged its fans via Twitter to get rid of their frustration and anger in a so-called “f * ck list” and thus inadvertently publicly pillaged their own team.
At any rate, the “virtual suggestion box” that a club spokesman defended the action was filled to the brim, which after the shock in ascent race a little surprised. Even Clemens Fritz as Werder Bremen Head of professional football in conversation with DeichStube admitted the day after the severe setback: “No one had a quiet night. We all thought about how it could have happened.”
Werder Bremen went into the match as a front runner after the 4-1 victory over Schalke. And because the favorites were already in the lead after 22 minutes thanks to goals from Niclas Füllkrug and Marvin Ducksch (penalties), everything seemed to be in perfect order. But it was not! On the right side of the defense, the defense remained poor and the necessary access was also lacking in the middle. Holsten Kiel was invited to score before the break. The fact that Fulkrug unfortunately got the ball in his own goal seconds before the half-time whistle fit into the picture. After the change, there were good chances to recreate the old hole, but the goals came from the other side. Anthony Jung equalized with Bremen’s second own goal (71 ‘), and Julian Korb (85’) scored the winning goal.
Werder Bremen under extreme pressure: Direct promotion no longer possible on its own?
Grün-Weiß was shocked in Wohninvest Weser Stadium, which was sold out with 42,100 spectators. After the final whistle, the question marks erupted. Why did Werder Bremen this secure leadership and this huge opportunity for three key points in ascent race just take? “There is only one answer for me: We were too careless, especially after the 2-0 lead!” said Fritz: “But in general we did not play well. And if you lose one or two percent more, because after 2-0 you think it goes by itself, then something like this can happen. But you must always bring your performance on the field, and that includes aggression and intensity. ” Fritz was with his criticism But it is far from finished: “I also missed the unity that made us so strong in Schalke. We have broken out of tactical order too many times. This performance should bother us all, it must not happen to us! We put too much pressure on the next few games because we gave away points. “
Schalke, who won in Sandhausen at the last second, traveled to a draw table past the Bremen team again. Darmstadt 98 has a chance to slip past with a win against Aue late Saturday night. Which would mean before the last two games: I can handle it on my own Werder Bremen not directly rises. And beware! Hamburger SV has stalked and is like the ailing FC St. Pauli only three points behind Werder.
