VfL Bochum – SV Werder Bremen 0: 2: Doppelpacker Füllkrug makes SVW cheer late

The winning streak continues: After the fuss about Schalke’s flirt with coach Thomas Reis, VfL Bochum also lost the landmark home game against newly promoted Werder Bremen 0-2 (0-0) and remain bottom of the Bundesliga table without a point. Returnees Werder, on the other hand, are on target with eight points from five games in midfield after Niclas Füllkrug’s brace (86’/90′ + 2′, penalty kick).

The Bochumers continue to have their backs to the wall – and Reis, who is said to have negotiated with rivals Schalke 04 in the summer, is under particular observation. Next Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky) the two neighbors will meet directly in the fight against relegation. Two weeks after the 3-2 win at Borussia Dortmund, Bremen celebrated their second away win in the Ruhr area.

Reis, who denied any talks with Schalke on Thursday, was greeted with applause. Instead of verbal attacks against the promotion coach, who also managed to stay up in the league, there were abusive songs against the neighbors from Gelsenkirchen.

Even if nobody at VfL wanted to speak of an ultimatum, the 48-year-old was under enormous pressure for the first time as Bochum coach. Reis himself had said that what happened after the game interested him “a little”. The new sports director Patrick Fabian, who had played with Reis at VfL, took his place on the Bochum bench for the first time.
