Bremen – It’s a proud number – 58 years – and that’s why it’s good so shortly before away game of SV Werder Bremen at the FC Erzgebirge Aue (Sunday, 1.30 p.m., DeichStube live ticker) also definitely as an encourager. 58 years – that’s how long it’s been since Bremen last lost a game against an opponent who had already been relegated at kick-off.

Werder Bremen vs. Erzgebirge Aue: The pressure in the promotion race increases over the course of the 33rd matchday

Ole Werner is likely to have dealt less with this statistical oddity, his anticipation of the game against Erzgebirge Aue but it’s big enough anyway. “We are hot without end,” emphasizes the head coach of the SV Werder Bremen, who attests to himself and his team that they have now come to terms with this bitter 2:3 home defeat against Holstein Kiel. “We’re in a good mood. During the week we found the right mix that is needed for the Aue game,” says Werner – and explains: “On the one hand, of course, there is tension and concentration, because both are simply needed. On the other hand, it’s also about enjoying what we do, namely playing football.”

Also and especially in the hot final phase of a season that is “very important”. Don’t worry too much, just don’t get tense on the pitch, that’s exactly what Bremen didn’t manage to do in the second half against Kiel – and that’s exactly what should (and must) now Erzgebirge Aue run better. This is despite the fact that the fixtures of this 33rd match day could ensure that the pressure on Werder Bremen before the start of their own game, because the competition in the promotion race has long since played their games on Sunday and possibly presented them. The good news came on Friday evening: Darmstadt has not managed to do that before, the team lost 1:2 in Düsseldorf. Wants too much meaning Ole Werner but don’t judge the results of the competition – at least publicly.

Werder Bremen against Erzgebirge Aue: Coach Ole Werner changes the usual processes a bit

“We can’t change the game plan, so it’s the way it is,” says Ole Werner and assures that he has given little thought to this topic: “I don’t really care. We have to look after ourselves and do our homework. We can’t influence everything else anyway. Our focus is solely on winning in Aue.” Which could be difficult enough under certain circumstances. So had Erzgebirge Aues Coach and head of sport Pavel Dotchev already announced that the “stumbling block” and “stress factor” for the SV Werder Bremen will to want. After all, his team is about saying goodbye to their own fans in the third division with a win in the last home game of the season.

“We assume that Aue will bring everything the team has in terms of quality onto the pitch,” says Werner, who also expects the opponent to react to the recent 6-0 defeat against Darmstadt want to show. “But the fact is: If we reach our performance limit, we will also be able to assert ourselves,” says Werner. In order to be able to help the players as fully as possible, the coach of the SV Werder Bremen this week – unlike what was announced immediately after the Kiel game – the usual processes were screwed up a bit.

SV Werder Bremen vs. FC Erzgebirge Aue: big win? Coach Ole Werner does not want to demand that

In public, towards the media, no professional of the SV Werder Bremen expressed – and will probably not do it again until the last game of the season against Jahn Regensburg. “We wanted the guys to concentrate on their work on the pitch and do everything to keep their minds on their core business,” explained Ole Werner the isolation, to which the three non-public training sessions in the stadium should not be counted: “It was more because we rocked our other training ground quite a bit.”

With all the ambition, with all the anticipation and determination of the SV Werder Bremen – unlike his striker Niclas Füllkrug, Werner refrained from trying to win as high as possible against Erzgebirge Aue to promote. “We should keep our foot on the gas throughout the game, of course, but we don’t talk beforehand about how many goals we’re going to score, when, how and where.” (dco) Have you read it?
