The spoils were shared in the second Sunday kickoff on match-day 11 of the 2023/24 Bundesliga campaign. SV Werder Bremen were unable to preserve a 2-0 lead against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Weserstadion.
Thanks in large part to some set-up work from Omar Marmoush, Dino Toppmöller’s SGE were able to fight back and earn a 2-2 draw.
Ole Werner’s SV Werder Bremen have now drawn their last two consecutive Bundesliga fixtures 2-2. The top-tier’s Hanseatic city-state side took a 2-0 lead against visiting Eintracht Frankfurt Sunday at the Weserstadion, but weren’t able to stave off an Eintracht comeback that featured two goals in the final 35 minutes. The result leaves both sides on an unbeaten run. Werder haven’t lost in three league matches. Frankfurt are undefeated in seven fixtures on-the-trot.READ MORE
Heavy rotations from SGE trainer Dino Toppmöller saw the Eintracht side that took three points home from Helsinki on Thursday in the Conference League re-formatted to resemble the XI that started last week against Union Berlin in the league. The only two changes from last Saturday placed Aurelio Buta and Hrvoje Smolcic replace the injured Robin Koch and Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe. SV head-coach Werner left the XI that earned a 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg last Sunday untouched.
Strikers Omar Marmoush and Rafael Santos Borré traded chances during what was otherwise a rather uneventful opening quarter-of-an-hour. After the 15-minute mark, the flow of the match flattened out due to many fouls, stoppages, and generally clumsy play. Eintracht didn’t stir matters up until shortly before the end of the half with a pair of Fares Chaibi chances. It would nevertheless be the hosting Hanseaten who opened the scoring just before it was time to head into the tunnel.
