Werder Bremen: Ducksch silences his critics against Stuttgart for the time being

Werder Bremen Werder win against VfB

Ducksch is silencing his critics against Stuttgart for the time being

As of: 5:54 p.m. | Reading time: 3 minutes

Werder Bremen ends their winless streak. The team inflicts its first defeat on VfB Stuttgart after eleven unbeaten league games and thereby takes an important step towards staying in the league. The long-unlucky MarvinDucksch plays a central role.

Werder striker Marvin Ducksch has ended his more than two-month goal drought and inflicted VfB Stuttgart’s first defeat after eleven unbeaten league games. The Bremen attacker scored twice in the Green-Whites’ 2-1 (1-0) win against the Swabians on Sunday and was the match winner for the hosts in the sold-out Weserstadion with 42,100 spectators. Ducksch, who last scored at the beginning of February, was successful with a penalty kick in the 28th minute and in the 49th minute. Deniz Undav (71st) only scored the next goal for VfB.

After seven games without a win, Werder took a big step towards staying in the league and was the big winner in the Bundesliga relegation battle. Just like Duck, whose dry spell as a striker caused discontent among the fans. Overall, the 30-year-old offensive player scored at least twice in a Bundesliga game for the third time, and for the first time in a home game (previously last season in Mönchengladbach and in a hat-trick at Hertha). Before his brace against VfB, Ducksch had gone nine games without scoring. With eleven goals this season he is almost at last year’s level (twelve). VfB, on the other hand, had to accept a small setback, but as third in the table they are still on course for the Champions League.

Stuttgart, who had recently won away from home five times in a row, had a hard time on the Weser from the start. The Swabians’ lively offensive game did not get going as usual because Bremen defended in a disciplined manner and left the guests little space. Apart from a header from national player Undav that hit the crossbar shortly before half-time, Stuttgart were hardly dangerous.

Ducksch publicly complained about the treatment of Werder fans

However, at the time of the Undav chance, VfB was already behind. After the very unfortunate Jamie Leweling fouled Bremen’s full-back Felix Agu in the penalty area, Ducksch safely converted the penalty.

After criticism from some supporters, Ducksch publicly complained that he felt he was being treated unfairly. “If I were to speak from the fans’ point of view, they would hope that I would be gone in the summer,” the attacker said in the “Kicker meets DAZN” podcast at the beginning of the week. After his goal, he formed his hands into a heart and let the spectators celebrate him.

After the break the game really picked up speed. First, Nick Woltemade, who will be moving to VfB in the summer, missed the chance to make it 2-0 (48th). Then Leweling failed on the other side due to the strong Werder goalkeeper Michael Zetterer (49th). In return, Bremen extended their lead to 2-0. After a sharp cross from Romano Schmid, Ducksch was there in the middle. For the first time since the 3-1 win against Freiburg at the end of January, the fan classic “Ducksch is on fire” was heard again in the Weserstadion.

But Stuttgart didn’t give up and scored through Undav. The national striker poked the ball out of the crowd and into the Bremen goal. VfB then pushed for an equalizer and had numerous good chances. But Werder achieved the important success with great fighting spirit and a bit of luck over time.
