First time watching Havertz play. Does he always play forward? Thought he was an attacking mid.

Havertz looks really good, considering he's not a number 9 and he's so young his goalscoring record is superb.

Havertz is nailed on to end up at Bayern.

Funny in the first half of the season, plenty where quick to write Havertz off, as he was struggling, but after the winter break he's been back looking like a star, and nice to see how he's straight back into it.

they are.

When a peter Bosz team clicks, they look great, just passing it quickly and sharply and pressing.  Leverkusen are a nice team to watch.

That should have been 2-2. In a game when you've had no chances, you can't sit and wait for the ball to come to you. And now just like that is 1-3

Ahhhhh that's how it goes! So close for the struggling Bremen, sucker punch.

Diaby has been a really good signing for Leverkusen too.

Bremen and conceding headed goals  :o

Ohhhh bremen  :butt  Such a great chance again.

Have to say David Selke's career has not turned out anywhere near the hype was (the next Miroslav Klose). Seems to have one surprisingly good season followed by a few poor ones that cause him to be moved on

Thought that was in then but side netting, which brings to that daft goal Leverkusen were involved with a few years back, when the ball went out then went through a hole in the net & a goal was given. :lmao

yeah, I guess it was one of them typicaly situations, a young player has a good first season in the league and gets hyped up. He's had 2 good, but not great seasons at this level basically, so far in his career. No consistency at all.

In the back of my mind I think if Leverkusen ever kept their players and they put it all together you'd have a more than decent outfit. Bailey, Paulinho, Diaby, Tah, Havertz are players most clubs would enjoy having but you just know they won't and another bad patch is lurking.

Men against boys this, Bremen just need a very quick final whistle, right on 90 mins, to put them out of their misery. Sad seeing them like this, love Bremen as a club.

Werder Bremen have been slightly unlucky in that teams have run scolding hot against them this year, they're roughly a middle of the pack team in terms of expected goals against. They're woefully short of firepower though. Bad luck and a lack of cutting edge is no formula.

yup, basically Milot Rashica or nothing. And it's not like he's a striker anyway. It's a lot to ask of him, and if he's off the boil or marked out of a game, they just can't do much.

Well it is a recent theme with them. 2012/13 they finished three points above the relegation zone and finished the season on a 13 match winless run. 2013/14 they went on a stretch of games where they won once in 11 games. Their late season form kept them up. 2015/16, they finished 13th on the last day of the season despite being being in and around the relegation zone for half of the season. In 2016/17, they went through a stretch of winning twice over a thirteen game period. They got out of the relegation zone by playing great in the second half of the season.In 2017/18, they were in the relegation zone for most of the first half of the season.

And this is the Bundesliga table after this round of matches:



Biggest game next weekend has to be Bayer Leverkusen away at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

There is also the Berlin derby - which is on Friday night.

Leverkusen-Gladbach next weekend should be a really good watch (0-0 incoming).

Wolfsburg-Dortmund is another good test for BVB in their title push.
