With a work victory to promotion: Werder Bremen has returned to the Bundesliga after a year of second class. Massively supported by 41,000 spectators in the Weser Stadium, the Hanseatic work won 2-0 (1-0) against Jahn Regensburg and thus claimed their direct promotion. “The SVW is back,” the audience chanted after an hour.
With his 19th goal of the season, Niclas Füllkrug laid the foundation stone as a deserved but rather lackluster success against the Upper Palatinate, for which it was no longer about anything. The striker was successful with a placed half -high shot. Five minutes after the restart, his storm partner Marvin Ducksch scored from a short distance, it was the season hit 21.
However, the early lead gave the place owners only a little tailwind for the further course of the first half. The team of coach Ole Werner was dominant, but rarely found a way against the stable cover of the guests. The Werder coach called on its protégés several times to broader actions, but mostly the storm center was sought.
Regensburg was not harmless to sporadic counter attacks. Bremen’s goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka was only seriously checked by one teammate. Mitchell Weiser surprised the Czech goalkeeper in the 22nd minute with an accident, which almost led to an own goal.
Jahn trainer Mersad Selimbegovic had traveled to the Hanseatic city with a big goalkeeper. Instead of the cold Thorsten Kirschbaum, Alexander Weidinger stood between the posts. The 24-year-old is usually used in the second team of Regensburg in the Oberliga Bavaria.

The 2-0 gave the placekeepers the long missing security in the actions. Regensburg began to resign, relief attacks hardly took place. And if they do, they remained harmless.
