GAME OVER!

It's all about Bremen tonight. What a first-half showing from the hosts, who blew Gladbach away from the get-go. The visitors never recovered from an early Füllkrug-Ducksch-Füllkrug triple punch and the Green-Whites just kept landing the blows thereafter. Hats off to Ole Werner's team. For Farke and Co. there will be plenty to learn from this.

HOME JOY AT LAST

What a way for Werder to win their first home game of 2022/23! The hosts also end an unwanted run of nine Bundesliga home games without a victory.

PARTY TIME IN BREMEN

Lucky are those who can join the party in the centre of Bremen after this massive win for Die Grün-Weißen. Gladbach, meanwhile, will travel the 200 mile plus trip back home in relative silence.

BREMEN RISING

Bremen will join Gladbach on 12 points after this result, although Ole Werner's team will sit ahead of their opponents in eighth position on account of a better goal difference.

OVER AND OUT

Good night and good luck. Werder build from the back and work the ball into the box. Füllkrug feeds Mitchell Weiser who slams home his team's fifth of the night. And oh what a night it is for Werder.

HOSTS' UNEASE

Bremen are beginning to get a bit panicky at the back. Should the visitors net a second, we'd be in for a hell of a 20 minutes here.
67'

FOALS POST WOE

Thuram with a delicious back heel for Hofmann, who finds the inside of the post! Suspicions of a Thuram offside in the build up, however. That likely wouldn't have counted had it gone in.

THURAM NETS

Gladbach have a goal! Sommer to Stindl right through the middle. The visiting captain threads the needle to release Thuram, who finishes exquisitely, taking the ball around the keeper and tapping home.

BREMEN HIT THE POST

Füllkrug could let this go out for a corner, but he snaffles possession on the touchline, turns, and lifts a tasty cross for Weiser, who sends a power header against the frame of the goal. So close.

PACE DROPS

Füllkrug (who else?) has a blast from the right after some Gladbach back-and-forth passing led to nothing of note. Not surprisingly, we're playing at about a quarter of the first half intensity here.

STINDL SEARCHING

Gladbach play it around nicely before Stindl has a pop from the edge of the D. That one fails to trouble Pavlenka twixt the Werder posts.

FABULOUS FÜLLKRUG

It's seven goals for the season and counting for Bremen's sharp-shooter Füllkrug.

THURAM CHANCE

Thuram with a BIG chance to pull one back. Alas, the Frenchman drags his shot wide of the upright having been played through on goals.

AWAY WE GO AGAIN

Gladbach kick off the second half, the players' ears no doubt still ringing with a Daniel Farke roasting at the break. Can the visitors get one back at least or will Werder add to their already impressive haul?
Kick-off!
46'

BREMEN BONANZA

Phew, where do you start with a summary of that first half? Gladbach have been battered by the brilliance of Ducksch and Füllkrug, who are putting in a performance for the ages. Werder as a whole have been flowing and wonderfully accurate with their passing. Borussia, meanwhile, just never got started in this game. This being the Bundesliga, though, who knows what drama awaits after the break!

Dear me, Gladbach. When it's not your day, eh? Ducksch hits a cross in from the left. There doesn't appear to be too much danger as the ball bounces, but nobody has told Bensebaini, who inexplicably diverts into his own net.

BREMEN STILL RUNNING

The Green-Whites are in the ascendency again as Ducksch flashes another header just wide of the near post. You can imagine the expression on Daniel Farke's face during all of this. Let's just say that Gladbach's half-time team talk might be a bit toasty.

DUCKSCH MENACING

Ducksch with another chance. It's not an easy one for the Bremen No.7 as he sprints into the centre and heads a ball over the top at the target. Sommer jumps to save.

FOALS RELIEF

Gladbach have had a shot! It's Christoph Kramer who stretches and pokes wide of the upright. We still haven't reached 20 minutes and we've had enough incident in this game to fill two matches.

JUNG OPPORTUNITY

It's impossible to even breathe during this one. Again it's Werder, with Anthony Jung controlling a looped pass from the right. The Bremen No.3 has time to pick his spot for 4-0, but the shot it weak and Sommer can scoop that one up.
14'

UNSTOPPABLE BREMEN

What. Is. Happening? The Proclaimers are belting out another ditty as Werder bag a third. A THIRD. A poor defensive header from Bensebaini is pounced on by Ducksh. The striker takes it into the area and squares for his teammate Füllkrug, who wellies an unstoppable effort past the beleaguered Sommer. Crazy.

Kick-off!

KICK OFF

Werder get us underway amid a sea of green and white. This one promises to be spectacular, but who will strike first?

TEAMS IN TUNNEL

We're all set at the Weserstadion, which is buzzing ahead of kick off. Both teams are inside the tunnel listening to the stadium announcer belting out both Starting XIs.

TOP ATTACK ?

So, as we edge ever closer to kick off, who do you fancy will come out on top in terns of attack? That deadly home duo of Füllkrug and Ducksch have a combined total of five goals and two assists so far this season while Gladbach's fearsome attacking trident that contains Thuram, Stindl and Hofmann have six goals and three assists altogether. This is set to be fascinating.

Ole Werner makes just one change to the side that drew 1-1 with Bayer Leverkusen last time out. With Amos Pieper suspended, Niklas Stark starts in defence.

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT

Daniel Farke has enjoyed a super start to life in charge of Gladbach, but the Foals' coach would still like his side to raise their game in several aspects. "There is still room for improvement at the top of the pitch," the 45-year-old explained. "We have scored a few goals, missed a few penalties, squandered some big chances and hit the woodwork on a number of occasions. If we can improve on those things then we will have a solid base to build on."

WERDER'S HOME HOPES

Hosts Werder are still without a home win this term, not that coach Ole Werner is overly concerned by that fact. The 34-year-old is confident that if his side continue to play as they have been up until now, maximum spoils will be theirs at the Weserstadion sooner rather than later. "We are very happy with how things are going right now and if you look at the performances, we’ve by no means played any worse at home than we have in our away games,” Werner said.

Milos Veljkovic scored a late equaliser as Werder extended their unbeaten away run in this season's Bundesliga to four matches (W2, D2). Only Mainz (nine points) and Freiburg (10 pts.) have fared better on their travels.

STAY TUNED!

Bundesliga giants Werder Bremen and Borussia Mönchengladbach renew acquaintances on Matchday 8. Promoted Werder have made a solid start to life back in the top tier, taking nine points from the first 21 on offer. Gladbach thumped RB Leipzig 3-0 prior to the international break to move level on points with fifth-in-the-table Bayern Munich. Who will prevail at the Weser Stadium?
