Klaassen escapes historic relegation with Werder Bremen through play-off | NOW


Werder Bremen also plays at the highest level in Germany next season. Captain Davy Klaassen’s team struggled in the play-off for promotion / relegation with FC Heidenheim.

After the first game ended in 0-0 on Thursday in Bremen, both teams kept each other in balance again on Monday in Heidenheim: 2-2. Based on the goals scored, Werder draws the longest.

Werder also crawled through the eye of the needle earlier in the regular season. On the last day of the Bundesliga, the team escaped direct relegation and moved up to sixteenth place, good for a ticket to the playoffs against Heidenheim, the number three on the second level.

Werder Bremen’s relegation would have been a special moment in German football history. No club has been active at the highest level for so many seasons (56). Bayern Munich and Hamburger SV follow with 55.

Werder Bremen in trouble despite dream start

Werder Bremen had an ideal start in the empty Voith Arena. After only three minutes, the visitors took the lead thanks to an own goal by Norman Theuerkauf.

Florian Kohfeldt’s team missed the opportunity to decide the game before the break and almost got the bill for that. Heidenheim got stronger as the game progressed, although Tim Kleindienst’s equalizer fell just five minutes before time.

Knowing that one more goal would end an almost four decades of uninterrupted stay in the Bundesliga, a nerve-wracking phase unfolded. In this, Werder took the lead again, after which Heidenheim scored in the very last second from the spot.
