Bayern wins over Bremen

Share |

Fans in the Munich Arena saw a spectacular beginning when Miroslav Klose scored the 1-0 up for Werder Bremen, and inside a minute, Claudio Pizarro ramming against a post inside two, and Bastian Schweinsteiger equalising for Michael Ballack's team a minute later.

Local team second goal stemmed from a beautifully weighted pass from Schweinsteiger on the left. Ze Roberto was just quick enough to reach it ahead of Patrick Owomoyela and the Brazilian pulled the ball back for Pizarro to convert.

Pizarro turned provider for the third, racing clear of his marker on the right and crossing for Makaay, who stumbled slightly but still managed to connect well enough to send the ball flying past Reinke.

Makaay, dropped by Marco van Basten from the latest Dutch squad, celebrated with evident relief.

The second half offered less excitement as Bayern sat deeper and gave Bremen just a couple of chances from corners.

"It was a classic game, particularly in the first half," said Magath. "Like everyone in the stadium I was especially pleased with Roy's goal."
