Köln score late to deny Bremen victory

Dusan Svento struck late to earn 1. FC Köln a point in a 1-1 draw at SV Werder Bremen.

SV Werder Bremen 1-1 1. FC Köln

Goals: 1-0 Vestergaard (4'), 1-1 Svento (79')

With six defeats in seven home games so far this season, Bremen could have done with an early goal to settle their nerves, and that is what they got. Jannik Vestergaard stretched his towering frame to meet Clemens Fritz's cross and put the hosts in front with Bremen's first attack four minutes in. Werder continued to play with confidence, although Anthony Modeste's shot over when he was given a sniff of goal was a warning to the hosts.
