Werder Bremen clearly defeated Gladbach in the Bundesliga

AArm in arm, the Werder professionals danced in front of their fans and exuberantly celebrated the first Bundesliga home win in 19 months – and what a win! Bremen, who played like unleashed in the early stages, clearly won 5-1 (4-0) against Borussia Mönchengladbach, who had been overwhelmed for a long time, and jumped up to eighth place in the table.

“A huge knot burst,” said double goalscorer Niclas Füllkrug: “That was a world-class first half today.” The attacker has already scored seven goals after eight league games and could be a World Cup candidate for the national team in this top form. The Bremen fans were already loudly demanding: “Lücke (nickname of Füllkrug/ed.Red.) for Germany!”

In addition to Füllkrug (5th and 13th minutes), strike partner Marvin Ducksch (8th) was also successful, scoring his first goal of the season. “The boys always believed in it, I always believed in it,” said Ducksch. With their early goals, the strike duo set a record in the club’s history: Never before had Bremen been 3-0 up after 13 minutes in a Bundesliga game. In addition, Mitchell Weiser (73′) scored for Bremen, and the completely indisposed Ramy Bensebaini scored an own goal (37′), in which he unchallengedly jumped the ball into the goal with the outside.

Gladbach falls back in the table

The mishap of the Algerian full-back was symbolic of the unfocused and strangely disembodied performance of the European Cup contenders in the first half. “We were simply not there in the first 15 minutes,” criticized goalkeeper Yann Sommer: “We have to analyze the game very well and question ourselves. It’s no use banging your head against the wall either. We stayed together in the second half.”
