I don't know why there is such a thing as a fearful opponent. In recent years, Bayer has never been able to pull up a tree at home against Werder and so today it remained a 1-1 draw, even though more would have been possible against Bremen's offensively weak side. In the first half, however, the team lacked any drive towards the goal and only really got into the game a little better after going behind.
Now the English weeks start again. Our squad is currently rather thin with all the injuries, but the transfer window is open. I hope that our management will act this time.
And not to forget, even if it's not an excuse: the Bremen player's handball in the 90th minute was actually a clear penalty for us, but I've long since stopped getting upset about the VAR.
