Before we reach the last few games of the Bundesliga season, there is another international break to go. 12 Werder players have been called up to their national sides, with some playing qualification matches for the Euros.
Bad news before SV Werder Bremen’s final training before the Leverkusen game: The Green-Whites will be without midfielder Philipp Bargfrede for the game on Sunday against Bayer Leverkusen. The 30-year-old central midfielder has been ruled out with a thigh problem.
Werder Bremen are unbeaten in nine competitive games and go to Leverkusen this weekend (Sunday 17th March, 13:30 CET) looking to continue this record with a win. However, it won’t be easy. “After Bayern, they have the best squad in the league for me. It’ll be a very exciting game,” said Florian Kohfeldt on Friday.
Sebastian Langkamp is still sidelined, while Milos Veljkovic picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in the 4-2 victory over Schalke and is suspended for the weekend’s trip to Leverkusen.

Werder midfielder Maximilian Eggestein has received his first call up to the Germany national team from head coach Joachim Löw. The 22 year-old will travel on Monday to join the squad ahead of the first international fixture of 2019 against Serbia (Wednesday, 20th March, 20:45 CET in Wolfsburg). Die Mannschaft also face the Netherlands in their opening UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier on Sunday, 24th...

In an interview with WERDER.DE, the 22 year-old spoke about what has gone so well in front of goal so far this year, what has helped him, putting previously...
On Tuesday afternoon, the Green-Whites began a new training week in preparation for their game in Leverkusen on Sunday. Yuya Osako has returned to full first team training, as Florian Kohfeldt announced at lunch time.
Werder picked up a point in Wolfsburg and the general consensus was that it was the right result. Max Kruse got the equaliser for the Green-Whites. “We woke up after we conceded and got the equaliser that we deserved. A point is fair,” he said after the game. One negative from the game was the injury to Basti Langkamp, who has gone to hospital for an X-ray.
