Germany round-up: Bremen square up to Bayern

SV Werder Bremen moved second in the 1. Bundesliga on Sunday after victory over VfB Stuttgart.

SV Werder Bremen confirmed their status as FC Bayern München’s most dangerous rivals when they moved into second spot in the 1. Bundesliga on Sunday after a 3-1 victory over VfB Stuttgart.

Points to play for
Bremen, however, are still six points behind Bayern, who beat Hertha BSC Berlin on Saturday, and two above third-placed BV Borussia Dortmund.

Ailton hot streak
Goncalves Ailton was the hero of the day, opening his account on 27 minutes before doubling the lead from the spot in the dying stages. The two strikes mean the in-form Brazilian tops the scoring charts with 12 goals.

Stuttgart slide
Stuttgart, who dropped two positions down to fifth, had levelled the game at 1-1 with a header from striker Kevin Kuranyi early on in the second half but Werder moved back into the lead ten minutes from time courtesy of Mladen Krstajic’s fine free-kick.

Hannover drought
FC Schalke 04, meanwhile, prepared for the German Cup encounter against Bayern on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Hannover 96 - who have gone over five hours without scoring - in the other game played on Sunday.

On the up
Midfield player Jörg Böhme, with a penalty, and Belgian international striker Emile Mpenza scored before the break for the Gelsenkirchen club, who climbed to fourth.
