Bremen - Departing midfielder Aaron Hunt scored twice as SV Werder Bremen eased to a 2-0 victory over Hertha Berlin.
Hunt's parting gift
Despite having leading scorer Adrian Ramos back in the starting line-up following injury, Hertha struggled to create anything of note over the course of a low-key first half. Hunt's 50th competitive goal in a Bremen shirt soon livened things up, though, with the former Germany international guiding Franco Di Santo's cute pass beyond Thomas Kraft within five minutes of the restart.
The goal inevitably forced the visitors to come out of their shell, albeit without once testing Bremen goalkeeper Raphael Wolf. Die Grün-Weißen's well-drilled back four continued to frustrate the capital club, who almost fell further behind to Sebastian Prödl's rising 77th-minute drive.
Norwegian Player of the Year Per Skjelbred then stuck out a boot to foil Hunt, who was not to be denied his second of the afternoon on his final appearance in a Bremen shirt at the Weser Stadion. Clemens Fritz provided the final ball following a blistering counter, with the hosts' outbound hero dancing free and wrapping up the points in injury time.
