Werder easily strolls into the second round – Hanover without a chance
A messed up year, a conciliatory end: Werder Bremen easily walked into the round of 16 of the DFB Cup. The team of coach Florian Kohfeldt deservedly won 3-0 (2-0) in the second round at the second division Hannover 96. Theodor Gebre Selassie (30th) and Josh Sargent (32nd) brought Werder with one the day before Christmas Eve Double strike early on, Jean-Manuel Mbom (60th) then made everything clear. Hanover remained pale overall.
