Against the second division team 1, Werder Bremen is in the first leg of the relegation. FC Heidenheim has to concern more than ever before the second leg next Monday for class preservation as it did not get past a 0-0 draw.
The team from Bremen showed a disappointing performance over 90 minutes who had rescued the relegation only on the last day of the match. FC Cologne last Saturday was thrashed as the fear of the relegation was clearly visible to the players of coach Florian Kohfeldt, the momentum of 6-1 against 1.
Above all, Werder captain Niklas Moisander has been locked in the second leg as he saw the yellow-red card soon before the end (87).
