Schick goal rescues point for Leverkusen against Werder Bremen

Bayer Leverkusen 1 - 1 Werder Bremen

Bayer Leverkusen had to come from behind to rescue a 1-1 draw against visitors Werder Bremen on Saturday and avoid a third straight Bundesliga loss.

Werder, who have won one of their last 12 league games, went ahead with Omer Toprak’s close-range effort in the 52nd minute but Patrik Schick equalised on the rebound for the hosts following a lengthy VAR review in the 70th minute to earn a point.

Leverkusen, unbeaten in their first 12 league games before losing twice, did not push for a second goal after levelling and are in third place on 29 points, two behind RB Leipzig who host Borussia Dortmund later on Saturday.

Bayern Munich are top on 33 despite their 3-2 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday.
