Intense clash on home soil

SV Werder Bremen’s Bundesliga meeting with 1. FC Köln on Saturday, 23rd September 2023 (18:30 CEST) at the wohninvest WESERSTADION is expected to be nothing short of intense.

FC Köln, the 28-year-old Colombian was introduced to the journalists in the Mixed Zone. “I’m prepared for my new role here,” says Borré. “The team can benefit…

Tough defeat in Heidenheim

SV Werder Bremen suffered a painful defeat away to 1. FC Heidenheim on Sunday afternoon. The hosts took an early lead through Kleindienst’s penalty (5’), and although Werder had plenty of chances to hit back, they lacked the clinical edge. Dinkci slotted away his first on the stroke of half time to double FCH's advantage (44’), before Ducksch (49’) and Weiser (64’) were able to level the game…

SV Werder will travel to 1.FC Heidenheim on Sunday, 17th September at 15:30 CEST for matchday 4 of the Bundesliga season. The Green-Whites go into the game against the newly-promoted side as slight favourites – an unfamiliar prospect given that this is only Werder’s second season back in the top flight.
