Live Commentary

  • The referee blows his whistle to call time on a fantastic second half! Werder Bremen can feel aggrieved not to have recieved a penalty, but in truth, Bayern were the better side! It's been an interesting affair, with a bit of everything. Strange refereeing decisions, four goals, a red card. Thrilling game! Thankyou for following on!
  • 90' + 2'
    Bayern playing the ball around without any rush, looking to run down the clock. It's been a fantastic display for them in the second half, and Bremen's defensive problems have been highlighted to a massive extent.
  • 90' + 1'
    Two minutes of added time here.
  • 90'
    Freekick is taken poorly. Way wide.
  • 89'
    SubstitutionAaron Hunt Sebastian Mielitz
  • 88'
    Red Card Tim Wiese
  • 88'
    Wiese sent off for a horrible clash with Mueller! He was foolish to clatter into him like that, and deserves his red card! It was just outside of the box, and Bayern win a freekick in a good area. Mielitz replaces Wiese between the sticks.
  • 88'
    Bremen looking desperate to equalise, but they can't cause any real trouble for the Bayern defence.
  • 86'
    Assist Thomas Müller
  • 86'
    Goal Miroslav Klose
  • 86'
    3-1, and this game's finished! Mueller and Klose break through 2-on-1 with the keeper, thanks to some sloppy defending from Werder, Mueller lays it off for Klose as Wiese rushes off his line, and Klose nets it with ease. Would have been harder to miss.
  • 85'
    Yellow Card Arjen Robben
  • 85'
    Pranjic puts Gustavo into the box brilliantly, but his first touch is too heavy, and he forces himself onto a tight angle, and cannot finish it off! What a waste of a fantastic chance.
  • 84'
    Robben booked for pulling on the shirt of Sandro Wagner in midfield.
  • 82'
    Bargfrede! Good effort from just inside the box, but Kraft saves well! Still behind in this one!
  • 81'
    SubstitutionM. Gómez Breno
  • 80'
    SubstitutionClemens Fritz Sandro Wagner
  • 79'
    Bayern come close after a nice passing move after the corner is played short, but Gomez is forced onto a tight angle, and is unable to finish off the move.
  • 78'
    Good attack by Bayern, as Mueller plays the ball out to Gustavo on the left wing, but he can't get past ther defence and he gets only a corner.
  • 77'
    Bremen looking to get forward, but meeting a rugged defence, and can't find a way through.
  • 76'
    Own Goal Per Mertesacker
  • 75'
    OWN GOAL! Mertesacker hits the net for the second time, and Bayern are winning now! Good play by Gomez to get the ball in that area, but Mertesacker should have done better! Absolute howler!
  • 75'
    Bayern on the attack here, shifting the ball onto the left flank for Klose, who plays a nice cross in, but Mertesacker wins the battle in the air and clears.
  • 73'
    A moment to reflect on that sketchy looking penalty tht wasn't called. Several replays confirm it was definitely, 100% handball. It didn't touch any other part of Gustavo's body, and Bremen were robbed of a penalty by that strange decision!
  • 72'
    Robben blasts the freekick horribly wide! Good news for Bayern though as Gomez looks fine.
  • 71'
    Freekick for Bayern, as Robben plays a great ball through to Gomez, who is brought down by Prodl. He's still down and looks to be struggling somewwhat.
  • 69'
    SubstitutionBastian Schweinsteiger Miroslav Klose
  • 67'
    SubstitutionMarko Marin Florian Trinks
  • 67'
    The new man introduced, Florian Triks, plays in a ball in from the right for Bremen, and Gustavo handballs! Penalty! NO! Referee waves play on! There was definite contact with the hand there, and Bremen can feel justifiably hard done by with that decision!
  • 66'
    Bayern keeping up the pressure as Lahm tries to swing in a cross from the right, which only finds Wiese.
  • 65'
    Assist Danijel Pranjic
  • 65'
    Goal Arjen Robben
  • 65'
    GOAL! Arjen Robben! He flies into the six yard box to meet a cross from the left wing by Pranjic, and justifies his nickname in brilliant fashion!
  • 64'
    Hunt takes the freekick well, cross into the middle and it goes close! Header just wide, good effort!
  • 63'
    Bremen looking to build an attack on the right wing, as Fritz lays it off for Hunt, who is brought down by Luis Gustavo, and Werder have the freekick.
  • 60'
    Bayern with some nice play in the Bremen box, just in front of goal. Gomez holds the ball up on the right side of the net, just flicks it back for Schweinstieger who sends the resulting effort wide. Should have done better really.
  • 58'
    Bremen applying pressure to the defence, playing a pass into Piazrro who could easily have broken through, bu Badstuber intercepts well, and Bayern take it away.
  • 56'
    Pranjic tries to play a ball into the box for Bayern, achieves that, but there is nobody to pick it up, and Wiese collects easily.
  • 53'
    GOAL! NO! Schweinsteiger fouled Frings in the build up! Good build-up to that point though, and allowed Mueller to put the ball in the net with ease, but it's chalked off quite rightly.
  • 51'
    Bremen win a corner, which they swing into the box and Kraft picks it up easily.
  • 49'
    This game has had a burst of energy thrown into by that opening goal, as Bayern push to try and equalise, but produce nothing noteworthy.
  • 47'
    Assist Sebastian Prödl
  • 47'
    Goal Per Mertesacker
  • 47'
    GOAL! Bremen one up now! 1-0! Wonderful long freekick finds the head of Prodl, who knocks it onto Mertesacker, and Per blasts it into the net, looking more like a striker! Great goal!
  • 46'
    Bayern get the second half underway, after it was in fact Bremen who kicked off the first half.
  • The referee calls half-time without any injury time, despite several stoppages. Both sides playing quite well here, playing with attacking intent, but no goals to share at half0time. 0-0.
  • 45'
    Robben! He picks up the ball just after lovely run and pass by Mario Gomez, but he puts the shot straight at the keeper! Good chance wasted!
  • 44'
    Bayern manage to launch a threatening looking attack after a missed clearance by Mertesacker, but the Bremen defence recover and stop Bayern well!
  • 42'
    Ottl takes a long range shot for Bayern, but it goes tamely over the bar.
  • 40'
    Bayern applying pressure on the opposition defence now, but still no means to launch a real attack.
  • 37'
    Robben plays in a great cross from the free-kick, and finds the head of Mario Gomez, who heads just wide! So close!
  • 36'
    Yellow Card Sebastian Prödl
  • 36'
    Now Prodl is booked for a nasty challenge from behind, and Bayern win a free-kick.
  • 35'
    Yellow Card Claudio Pizarro
  • 35'
    Claudio Pizarro booked for arguing with the referee, when it seemed fairly redundant to do so.
  • 33'
    Aaron Hunt breaks free on the left wing after an excellent passing play in midfield, and he looks for Marin in the box, but can't get his coss past Tymoschuk, who blocks well.
  • 32'
    The free-kick is blasted straight at the wall. No threat.
  • 31'
    Free-kick for Bayern, just outside the box! Silvestre apparently fouls Mueller, but it looked clean! Harsh call from the ref, as Silvestre definitely got the ball, and Mueller put his studs straight into the Frenchman's legs!
  • 30'
    Gomez! Great through ball from Robben allows Mario Gomez to break into the box, and he forces a fantastic save from Wiese!
  • 29'
    Bayern trying to attack, with a nice looking ball into the box played by Schweinsteiger, but Wiese picks it up.
  • 27'
    Gomez calls for a penalty! Per Mertesacker makes a fantastic challenge on him as he really starts to threaten in the box, but Gomez was rather theatrical there, and referee correctly ignores his calls.
  • 25'
    Yellow Card Bastian Schweinsteiger
  • 24'
    Frings with the free-kick and it's a good one! Reaches a Bremen attacker in the six-yard box and Kraft has to make a great save!
  • 23'
    Bremen win a freekick some distance from goal, after Badstuber fouls Marin.
  • 21'
    Ball stuck around midfield right now. Bremen look the better side, but Bayern aren't without their chances.
  • 19'
    Werder applying good pressure on the left wing, but they can;t find anything out there.
  • 17'
    OTTL! Close! Very close! He takes a great curling effort from just outside the box, and Tim Wiese is forced into a fatastic save! He gets fingertips to it, and it hits the crossbar and goes out.
  • 15'
    Mikel Silvestre wins a header from a corner, but he puts it wide of the post. Good effort, and nearly his first Bundesliga goal!
  • 13'
    Frings takes the freekick, but Schweinsteiger makes a good block before it even reaches the wall.
  • 12'
    Bremen win a freekick around 30 yards out after a foul by Lahm.
  • 11'
    Robben tries a shot, just inside the box, but he blasts it well over, and should have looked for the pass there. Poor effort by the Dutch international.
  • 10'
    Clemens Fritz attempts a shot from just outside the box, after some lovely running by Marin, but his effort is easily collected by Kraft.
  • 9'
    Bremen really in control of this game so far. Silvestre looks to run the ball forward, but he takes the ball out of play in midfield.
  • 7'
    Bremen look through, but referee calls a foul from Marin as he runs in, supposedly taking down Badstuber, but it looked pretty fair. Referee has made some funny looking calls so far, and it would be a great shame if he ends up deciding the outcome here.
  • 5'
    Another freekick for Bayern now as Bargfrede commits a handball, and the freekick is crossed straight to Wiese in the Werde net.
  • 4'
    Good chance for Bayern goes begging, as a Robben freekick finds Thomas Mueller who was called offside. Unlucky for him, as he was actually onside when the ball was played. Still, assistant calls it offside.
  • 2'
    Marko Marin has another shot for Bremen. Bremen played a corner in, which Gomez clears short for Marin, who has a long range effort but puts it well over.
  • 1'
    Bremen come close very early, as a lovely through ball allows Fritz to break into the box, and he is well saved by Thomas Kraft! Great chance early on!
  • 1'
    Bayern get us underway! Early handball from Bayern.
  • Hello and welcome to's coverage of the Bundesliga clash between Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich. Should be a good game today, two of the stronger sides in the Bundesliga, though Werder have had their troubles of late.
