Werder Bremen slaughters Frankfurt 5-0

After completely destroying rivals HSV, the Green Whites slaughtered Frankfurt 5-0 in front of their boisterous home fans. With firm plans for a top half of the table finish as well as bearing down on the DFB Pokal and UEFA Cup titles, Werder is peaking at the right time.

After a scoreless half, the match turned into target practice for Werder as they tore through the Frankfurt net five times in twenty-six minutes. Five minutes into the new half Frankfurt's Patrick Ochs was shown a red-card for his challenge Mesut Özil, resulting in Torsten Frings converting from the spot. Prior the goal Frankfurt was a formidable opponent and in-truth was the aggressor. However with the man advantage the slaughter began as Frings doubled the margin five minutes later drilling the ball in from the edge of the area. Everything was going wrong for Frankfurt now as a minute later Mesut Özil's free-kick was sent in by Alexandros Tziolis. Only two minutes later a long ball through the left channel was crossed by Özil into the box with Claudio Pizarro volleying in to make it 4-0, a stunning four goals in eleven minutes. Hugo Almeida added the fifth and final goal with thirteen minutes left as he struck a free-kick from just over twenty metres in.
