It was the expected Kxxx game after the international break. Bayer remains on course. After the first international break in the current year, the Werkself managed for the first time under Peter Bosz to score a triple after international matches, this time an important triple was achieved in the expected difficult game on the Alm.
How I hate these senseless international games in the current situation. On the one hand, it is certainly a distinction for the boys to be allowed to play internationally, on the other hand these matches are nothing more than a source of fire. Palacios seriously injured, Tapsoba with Covid ill, these are the losses after this year's international trips. And already in the previous matches, some players had been injured.
A deserved 1-0 half-time lead on the mountain pasture in Bielefeld was actually turned completely upside down between minutes 46 and 50. First the end in the break for Lars Bender, then after two minutes the end for Sven Bender and then the unlucky own goal of Hradecky. So the promoted player managed to equalise 1:1 without having shot once himself into the box.
The Werkself, however, stayed on, even though the chances were certainly not numerous and compelling. But in the end Dragovic scored the decisive and deserved winner with three minutes to go. Three points bygones and the healing process begins. Thursday we will continue in the EuropaLeague. But there is no time to take a deep breath.
