Bremen – There are only two full days between the away defeat of Werder Bremen at RB Leipzig and the home game against Borussia Dortmund (Tuesday, 8.30 p.m.) – and even if coach Florian Kohfeldt emphasizes that all Bremen players would have survived the previous game well he rotate something against BVB.
In defense, for example, the return of the long-recovered Milos Veljkovic, who could form the three-way chain together with Ömer Toprak and Marco Friedl, is an option. Given his injury history, a break wouldn’t hurt Toprak either. The fact that Kohfeldt had taken the head of defense in Leipzig after 72 minutes to spare him clearly indicates that he will also be in the game of SV Werder Bremen versus Dortmund plans with him.
Werder Bremen line-up against BVB: Davie Selke further injured
Instead, Christian Groß, who had always been used this season with the exception of the first match day, could move out of the team, but could now get some time to breathe deeply. Kevin Möhwald offers himself for the position on the double six next to Maximilian Eggestein, on the two more offensive positions before that, Yuya Osako, who only made a brief appearance in Leipzig in the closing stages, could move to Leonardo Bittencourt’s side. Romano Schmid, who made his starting eleven debut in Leipzig, should give way. At the very top, Kohfeldt doesn’t have much choice: Since Davie Selke and Niclas Füllkrug are still injured, there is no way around Josh Sargent at Werder Bremen against BVB either. (dco)
