Borussia Mönchengladbach – SV Werder Bremen 2: 2: Double pack from Ducksch! The foals have forgotten how to win

Borussia Mönchengladbach has forgotten how to win: Even in the home game against newly promoted Werder Bremen, coach Daniel Farke’s team, which had started to falter, did not get more than 2: 2 (0: 0) despite leading twice. The Fohlenelf have not won in four games since beating Bayern Munich (3-2).

Goals from Marcus Thuram (48th) and Florian Neuhaus (73rd) were not enough for Borussia, who will have to bury their tender dreams of Europe for good. The table neighbor from Bremen came back twice through Marvin Ducksch (65th and 89th) and can put the topic of relegation to the files.

“In the first half we played very well and had clearer chances,” said Bremen striker Niclas Füllkrug DAZN: “In the second half we had problems getting access for a long time.”

“We want to be dominant and set the tone,” Farke had demanded before kick-off – and was initially heard: Borussia started with a lot of vigour, let the ball run and came after a mistake by Werder defender Fabio Chiarodia, who was only 17 years old first good chance – Lars Stindl missed (8th).

Chiarodia, at 17 years and 285 days youngest starting XI player in Bremen Bundesliga history, made his debut for Werder, as did goalkeeper Michael Zetterer. A wave of illness had severely weakened the team coached by Ole Werner – regular keeper Jiri Pavlenka also had to pass at short notice. Substitute Zetterer distinguished himself with a brilliant save when he defused a shot from Thuram from five meters (22nd).

Borussia Mönchengladbach – Werder Bremen: The votes

Daniel Farke (Borussia Monchengladbach coach): “We deserved the win, so the late equalizer feels like a loss. We played a first-class game, created a lot of chances. But you also have to create chances. Who knows, maybe this point will still be valuable, too when it just doesn’t feel like it.”

Ole Werner (Werder Bremen coach): “We started with a lot of handicaps and had to do without an incredible number of players. In the second half we certainly had less time. But we came back twice, that commands a lot of respect from me. All in all, it was a well-deserved point for them Circumstances.”
