it was now. So many Fans of Werder Bremen think after the 0:1 against VfL Wolfsburg. The last hope is only to save themselves in the Relegation. A supposedly solvable rest of the program and a long-injured striker could help.

Bremen (dpa) – In this really disastrous game of the year, every three to four months at Werder Bremen, is a goal of the season on Board. At the beginning of November, the Club of his European farewell Cup ambitions.

at the beginning of February, the hope is to break free somehow from the relegation battle then. Since this is Sunday, you know, the number three in the eternal Bundesliga table, that you can back up the other belonging to this League is hardly a more direct way. After the 0:1 against VfL Wolfsburg, the only halfway realistic Option, to save themselves in the relegation matches against the second division third parties.

“We are fighting for the relegation place, that’s our first goal,” said coach Florian Kohfeldt. “There are still four games. And in four Games, it is possible to use three points to catch up. If we should create, we still have two more games. Then we have a Chance to stay in this League.”

For many Werder Fans, the Wolfsburg game triggered the feeling: This is it. The second Bundesliga relegation after 1980 is no longer to be avoided. After just one win in 15 home games and 25 points in 30 Games in total, can hardly be evidence of why this should work, with the attack on the relegation place, of all places, in the last four matches.

The number of remaining games is always low, the list of significant defects, however, remains unchanged in length. Over the repeated position error before the goal by Wout Weghorst Kohfeldt said: “it really hurts. We have the feeling that we defend all the way and it still happens again.” And the problems continue in front of the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” wrote: “The harmlessness in attack rises to hopelessness.”

Against this sense of Resignation addressed and continues to work for the Trainer. “The first step is that we proceed from the sports management,” said Kohfeldt on Sunday. “I want to do everything that we stay in. Each fiber must radiate.”

Specifically, the Bremen still hope on two factors:

The rest of the program

With something Tangible against FC Bayern München (16. June) estimates in Bremen, no one. The table last SC Paderborn, Germany (13. June), the table 15. Mainz 05 (20. June) and the table 11. 1. FC Cologne but should beat someone who’s up to this season a little. “It is clear that we need to score next week against Paderborn and Mainz. I think that the team lives”, said Sport Director Frank Baumann. But in which alone the table to the scale, the main rival Fortuna Düsseldorf, FC Augsburg and newly promoted Union Berlin, two seemingly unsolvable task. The tables-16. both of these games to win, would not Werder help due to the weaker Torverhältnisses also three wins probably.


Bittencourt, Rashica, Füllkrug: about Kohfeldt was before this season, his attack range. Against Wolfsburg, Leonardo was beat Bittencourt, and Milot Rashica injured and Niclas Füllkrug is still not fit again. But that should change next Saturday in Paderborn, Germany. Especially, the 26-year-old Füllkrug is pushing for his Comeback, after he had been committed to prior to the season for around 6.5 million euros from Hannover 96 and then to the fourth round with a ligament tear brought to the hospital.

“I don’t want to put the pressure on his shoulders and say: Finally, the Messiah will come again. He will not only be an Alternative by the Bank, and more,” said Kohfeldt. “But as the game strong Boxspieler Niklas is certainly an Element that we don’t have that. I am looking forward to have his mentality in the squad.”
