Werder Bremen are one of the best known brands to come out of the Bundesliga. The club is one of the four to win a domestic double, taking home the Bundesliga and German Cup titles in 2004.
Founded in 1899, Bremen was one of the founding members of the Bundesliga. Their trophy case is filled with 10 domestic titles - four Bundesliga, six German Cups - but the green and whites do not have the same strong track record in Europe - the 1992 Cup Winners cup and the 1992 Intertoto Cup are the only UEFA trophies they have. They still play in the Weserstadion, the oldest stadium in the Bundesliga. For all news and updates on Werder Bremen, look through DW's collated content below.
Werder Bremen were without key duo Serge Gnabry and captain Clemens Fritz. But they didn't let that stop them go four games unbeaten in the Bundesliga - even if it meant spoiling the party for the new Leverkusen coach.
Leaders Bayern Munich extended their lead at the top with a 3-0 win in Cologne. Elsewhere, rivals Borussia Dortmund thrashed Leverkusen to pile the pressure on Roger Schmidt and Gladbach beat Schalke in the top game.
Many considered Serge Gnabry's move from Arsenal to Werder Bremen to be a step down, but the young German has gone from strength to strength. He is an asset not only for Werder but for the Bundesliga as a whole.
