Bayer 04 were unperturbed by the early irritations at the Alte Försterei stadium and deserved the one point in a 1-1 draw. After Diaby's equaliser, the Werkself was clearly the leading team until half-time.
The game did not find a winner, but in the relevant statistics the Werkself was ahead. Twice as many shots on goal as the opponents, twice as much possession, advantages in tackling and passing - all this can be seen as positive after the unsuccessful preparation.
And all of this makes you want more, not least because the Foals from Ostholland are coming next Saturday for the top game. They, in turn, also feel like winners after the 1:1 against Bayern at home. Let's see what the game will bring, but one thing is clear: we have to score at home much more often than last year, because we lost the Champions League at the BayArena.
