A Fact
n the 2006–07 season, Werder Bremen claimed the 'winter champions' title, being the first place team in the Bundesliga before the winter break period. Bremen have scored a total of six goals in one game three times (against VfL BochumFSV Mainz 05, and Eintracht Frankfurt). Bremen encountered a tough UEFA Champions League draw, against last years championsFC Barcelona, and English powerhouse club Chelsea FC. Werder Bremen surprised many avid football viewers, by shocking Barcelona 5-1, and defeating Chelsea 1-0 at the Weserstadion during Champions League group stage. In the return leg of the group stage at the Nou Camp Estadio in Barcelona, Bremen were defeated 0-2, thus seeing them take the third place in the group, and relegated to the UEFA Cup, where they were to face Ajax Amsterdam. They won the first leg 3-0 in the Weserstadion, and despite losing 3-1 in Amsterdam, Werder Bremen progressed with an aggregate score of 4-3, to face Celta Vigo in the next round. Their domestic cup run was short-lived however as they suffered a stunning exit to FK Pirmasens in a penalty shootout.From Wikipedia
