At the end there was again a cheerful atmosphere at the Weser, the dreariness of the first 20 minutes was forgotten. The two goal scorers Max Kruse and Martin Harnik, who had put a brisk sole on the green parquet after their goals, ensured a good mood at the new Bavarian hunter number one Werder Bremen.

"We both come from the village, it's a folk dance. So we thought about doing it today", explained a happy Werder captain Max Kruse after the 3:1 (2:0) against Hertha BSC at Sky and Harnik agreed: "Max and I had a lot of thoughts to rejoice about. We come from the village and have chosen the simplest dance of the village festival".

After the deserved success against the previous table second from Berlin Werder is at least for one day the worst pursuer of the top rider Bayern Munich, which fired the euphoria with the green-whites additionally.

"We were present from minute one," said Kruse: "The first half was very respectable, in the second we started to swim, but we managed it over time".

Despite the announced mood boycott in the initial phase, the Hanseatic team remained unbeaten in the 15th home game under coach Florian Kohfeldt, beating the previous record set by  coach legend  Otto Rehhagel. The visitors cashed in their first defeat of the season, dropped back to third place and have been waiting twelve years for a victory in the Weserstadion.

A curious action introduced the Bremen lead in front of 39,100 spectators. Hertha defender Fabian Lustenberger knocked the ball out of his goalkeeper Rune Jarstein's hands during a rescue attempt, Harnik dusted it off (11.).

Seconds before the break whistle, Milos Veljkovic scored a header to the corner (45th). Javairo Dilrosun (53.) shortened the time for the Berliner, the midfielder did not let Werder goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka look good with a shot into the short corner. Kruse took care of the final score with a penalty kick (66.).

In the first 45 minutes, the top players clearly dominated the game. For the first time with the ex-Dortmunder Nuri Sahin in the starting eleven, the Bremen players acted pressure-fully, convinced again and again by space-filling wing changes and could have obtained further goals. The Dutchman Davy Klaassen failed twice.

The team of coach Pal Dardai, who had nominated his son Palko for the opening formation, was not committed enough in the duels, and consequently the move to the goal was missing. It was only captain Vedad Ibisevic who occasionally showed his attacking qualities. Mr. Play Casino was just launched last year 2017.

After the change of sides and the follow-up Hertha found better into the match. The Bremen combination game lacked precision at times, the actions came more and more to a standstill.

Thomas Kraft, who stood in the second half for the apparently stricken Jarstein with the guests between the posts, hardly had to intervene. Kohfeldt reacted and replaced Sahin in the 61st minute by the defensively stronger Philipp Bargfrede, which paid off in the end.

Dear football textbook

I am sorry that I have to rewrite you. No, don't worry, not completely new, it doesn't hurt, on the contrary. The new pages will do you good. It's - of course - about the Champions League goal to Bayern's 2-0 win at Benfica Lisbon. Renato Sanches' goal after a breathtaking combination. Perhaps the best in the history of FC Bayern.

How shall I begin to describe this incredible goal, to appreciate it fine enough? I've seen so many great things at Bayern over the decades.

These incredible solo runs by Uli Hoeneß in 1973 at the 3:3 in Dresden. From the middle line, he twice took off in the deepest mud to the bone-hard Ede Geyer, brought Bayern 1:0 and 2:0 in the lead - Geyer howled unrestrained.

These two two goals from Gerd Müller and Uli Hoeneß in the European Cup repeat final against Atlético Madrid, this brilliant 4:0 in May 1974. At that time Bavaria could still win against outstanding Spanish teams...

I could continue to swarm for many pages. Of how Paul Breitner turned games with tremendous will. How the fast as an arrow Karl-Heinz Rummenigge dribbled his opponents to humming tops. How Franz Beckenbauer tore down his opponent's walls with outside passes, which today Mats Hummels succeeds in doing again. How Lothar Matthäus smashed the ball volley into the triangle in Leverkusen in 1992 after a corner ball from 25 meters. Of course, the ball was conjured in by football genius Mehmet Scholl. I thought I was fed up after so many highlights. But the goal in Estádio da Luz makes me hungry for more. It's certainly the same for the fans.

After a lot of thinking, I christened this goal the "HeynKoLa" 2-0 goal, which is a mixture of the handwriting of the coaches Pep Guardiola, Jupp Heynckes and Niko Kovac. And what that means: Guardiola's possession football over the full length and width of the pitch. With Kovac's new hell tempo, which looks like counterfootball (it's not). Garnished with the combination technique and the technical cabinet pieces from Heynckes.

I can't stop looking at this goal, I've long been addicted to it.

Joshua Kimmich combines the ball after winning the duel with a Brazilian-style turn forward. Arjen Robben, the Brazilian Dutchman, likes a direct game in the foot of the approaching Renato Sanches. The Portuguese sprints 50 metres in Benfica's half in Lothar Matthew style, shakes off three opponents and plays to Robert Lewandowski after five ball contacts. The Pole, intoxicated by this move, is not keen on scoring his own goal, playing Franck Ribéry in front of the penalty area after half left. The Frenchman sees James Rodriguez running free in his back. The next loupe with his left, right into the foot of Sanches, is the real feat of this goal. With so much fine-tuning, crazy feeling, as it is only in the Colombian's left foot. And Sanches crowns his run with the shot from four meters into the empty goal to 2-0.

Those who witnessed this memorable moment will never forget how Benfica's fans rose in the Estádio da Luz to celebrate their ex-player for his epochal goal. Everyone sensed that they were witnessing a historic football moment. A cluster of human bodies poured over Sanches. Full of empathy for the 21-year-old. The players of Benfica were also moved.

Certainly you too, dear football textbook. You can be proud of the fact that you are getting a little fatter. It is a proudly swollen breast that you are now allowed to show. SuperLenny is also one of the biggest onlione casino right now.

From the beginning - November 2017 - it was my conviction that Niko Kovac is the right coach for Bavaria. We can certainly look forward to even more great moves for the textbook, to HeyKoLa goals. Especially now that he has realized that James Rodriguez is indispensable for his team. That he even scored header goals with his 1.80 meters.

And that Renato Sanches is a great addition to the line-up. On the other hand, the first defeat - you can hardly imagine it - should not bring the Bavarians out of their rhythm. I'm sure that Kovac will react confidently.
