SV Werder Bremen – FC Augsburg 0: 1: Ducksch misses late penalty

Next home game, next setback: Werder Bremen suffered a bitter defeat in front of their home crowd. The promoted team, who started the season so strongly, lost 0-1 (0-0) against FC Augsburg, missed a penalty in added time and thus missed the leap to fifth place.

The Augsburg attacker Ermedin Demirovic (63rd) made the guests cheer with his goal. For coach Enrico Maassen’s team it was their second win of the season after three consecutive defeats. While FCA increased their points tally to six, Werder stayed on eight points, seven of which the Green-Whites scored away.

There was excitement in stoppage time after a handball by Augsburg’s Maximilian Bauer (90+1). Referee Martin Petersen decided on a penalty, and it stayed that way even after video evidence. But Marvin Ducksch failed from the point, FCA keeper Rafal Gikiewicz parried the shot (90+4). Then some Werder fans stormed into the interior.

“We played a bad game for 90 minutes,” said Bremen captain Marco Friedl DAZN: “At home we don’t get what we train in the week on the pitch. Now we’re left empty-handed.”

Bremen, who have now been waiting for a first division success in the Weser Stadium for over a year and a half, were unlucky, even when Niclas Füllkrug allegedly scored. His headed goal after a good half hour was withdrawn because teammate Anthony Jung had blocked an opponent when he crossed and was a few centimeters offside.
