Werder Bremen: dots at St. Pauli: returnees there, but top gone – Bundesliga

How much is this point worth in the end?

Werder gets a 1-1 draw at St. Pauli and is rid of the lead in the table for the time being. Kyereh put the Kiez club ahead (43′) and Füllkrug scored the equalizer (58′). The new No. 1 in the 2nd division is called Schalke…

Coach Ole Werner: “Five points from the games against Darmstadt, Sandhausen and St. Pauli aren’t ideal, but they’re not a disaster either. At times we were missing four or five players from the supposed starting XI. We have to be careful that we look at our performance. I think the point will help us more today than St. Pauli…”

Points at St. Pauli: returnees there, tip gone

Important for Werder: The injured are back! With Milos Veljkovic, Mitchell Weiser and Marco Friedl, Werner surprisingly put three of the most recently missing players in the starting XI, but initially left Captain Toprak out. After a calf injury, the defense boss only celebrated his comeback in the final quarter of an hour.

Promotion favorite Werder is now out of the top of the table, but before the duels against the top teams Nürnberg and Schalke they still have every chance of a direct return to the first division.

Werner: “It will also be close against Nuremberg. After the Schalke game, there are game days when things can decide. Until then, we want to have a good starting position so that we can take control of it ourselves. The table is not relevant now.”

Bitter: Defense Ösi Friedl broke his nose in a duel with St. Paulis Medic. It is not yet clear whether his action against Nuremberg on Easter Sunday (1.30 p.m.) is possible.
