SC Paderborn – Werder Bremen 5: 4 on pens (2: 2, 2: 2, 2: 0)
You shouldn’t let the noble technicians take penalties. Werder Bremen’s Leonardo Bittencourt (picture) once again confirmed the golden rule of penalty kicks. The German-Brazilian was the only one of the ten shooters to miss from the point in Paderborn, but was denied by host keeper Leopold Zingerle. Richmond then converted Tachie in front of 15,000 enthusiastic spectators to score the winner for the second division club, who had looked like certain winners for a long time in regular time. Felix Platte (22′) and Sirlord Conteh (43′) had two goals, and substitute Bittencourt (65′) brought Werder back into the game. Mitchell Weiser (85th) scored the late equalizer. In extra time, a missed goal from Bremen by Niclas Füllkrug caused a stir. Paderborn’s supposed winning goal (119th) also didn’t count because of a foul play.
