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