Substitute Marcelo Saracchi (83) finished with his first Bundesliga finalist. In front of 40 000 spectators in the almost complete stadium, the organizers could leave the match open only in the first stages. Then Leipzig was clearly stronger in the game, faster in the duels and also ballicherer.
It was not until 39 minutes before coach Florian Kohfeldt's team appeared dangerous before the goal of the RB, but the Werder captain, Davy Klaassen, was blocked. His counterpart Julian Nagelsmann could afford to let regulars like Emil Forsberg and Diego Demme on the bench.
The hosts, however, were two under-23 players in the starting lineup. Only on Friday, striker Niclas Füllkrug had a cruciate ligament rupture at the last training session and will be absent for at least six months.
In the second half, the superiority of Leipzig continued unabated. In the 55th minute, Sabitzer missed the preliminary decision, his long range shot just above Bremen's goal. In view of this superiority, it was not significant that RB striker Timo Werner suffered a bad day, the game was largely finished in the national team.
Hope again sprouted from Werder's fans when Kohfeldt replaced unfortunate Johannes Eggestein in the 65th minute by Claudio Pizarro, three minutes later, Werder veteran Philipp Bargfrede. But even this measure of staff has not changed anything more at the game.
Bremen now in Dortmund
The Leipzig have now Saturday (28.09.19) the guest of FC Schalke 04. Bremen has the next cracker in front of the chest and must compete at Borussia Dortmund. Nuri Sahin will then return after the yellow-red lock expires.
