    • 90+2' Full-time - Twente win 2-0. Sending off completely changed the game.
    • 90+1' Substitution for Twente. Mitch Stockentree replaces Luuk de Jong.
    • 86' Substitution for Twente. Dario Vujicevic replaces Nacer Chadli.
    • 84' Bryan Ruiz picked out Luuk de Jong with a cross from the left and the striker guided his header past Sebastian Mielitz.
    • 84' GGGOOOAAALLLL!!! 2-0 to Twente. Game over.
    • 81' Peter Wisgerhof fouled Wesley to gain possession, the ref waves played on and the Twente captain charged down the right before switching play to Nacer Chadli, who cut inside and shot at goal. His strike deflected off Sebastian Prödl and beat a helpless Sebastian Mielitz.
    • 81' GGGOOOAAALLLL!!! Twente take the lead!
    • 80' Surely Twente have got to go for it now?
    • 77' CHANCE! What a chance for Twente. Clever free kick - Bryan Ruiz slips a pass to captain Peter Wisgerhof, who ghosted into the box undetected, but he completely misses the ball just eight yards from goal. Shocking!
    • 77' Twente's Rasmus Bengtsson is replaced by Michael Schimpelsberger.
    • 76' RED CARD! Werder Bremen captain Torsten Frings is sent off after pulling back Twente's Bryan Ruiz as he charged towards goal.

    • 61' This game is so open - either side could win this. Both teams have stopped defending in the second half. How this game is goalless is beyond me!?!
    • 59' Change made by Bremen - Marko Arnautovic replaces Philipp Bargfrede.
    • 57' CHANCE! Bryan Ruiz puts Nacer Chadli through with a great pass, but the striker is denied by the body of Sebastian Mielitz and then the post.
    • 55' CHANCE! Yes another one! Hugo Almeida tries to round Nikolay Mihaylov, but the Bulgarian goalkeeper smothers the ball.

    • 50' I can't keep up with these chances - both defences have absented themselves!
    • 49' CHANCE! Aaron Hunt cuts in from left and shoots at goal - saved well by Nikolay Mihaylov!

    • 44' CHANCE! Free kick from Twente finds Bryan Ruiz all alone at the back post, who gets caught in two minds and ends up heading the ball into a crowd of players. Surely, he should have headed at goal - he was unmarked!
    • 42' CHANCE! Hugo Almeida hits a fizzing drive from a free kick into the hands of Nikolay Mihaylov.
    • 41' Yellow card for Twente's Douglas Franco following a foul.
    • 40' CHANCE! Twente's Nacer Chadli smashes the ball over the bar from inside the box. Should have done better.
    • 39' CHANCE! Bryan Ruiz dances past a cluster of Bremen defenders and smashes a powerful shot straight at Sebastian Mielitz.

    • 35' CHANCE! Twente's Nacer Chadli hits a left footed shot from outside the box over the bar.

    • 30' CHANCE! Aaron Hunt works the ball onto his left foot and drives a shot from distance over the bar. Decent effort.
    • 27' Excellent defending from Torsten Frings - the Bremen captain delivers a fantastic sliding tackle on a Twente forward.
    • 26' Marauding run from Bremen's Sebastian Prödl ends with a poor cross into the box and Twente clear.

    • 25' This game is crying out for some real quality.
    • 23' Yet again Twente's Marc Janko breaks clear, but he lacks pace and Wesley clears up for Bremen.
    • 21' Werder have shown they can keep the ball, but there's little guile to their play. Twente's game plan is to hit the hosts on the break.
    • 20' Werder Bremen have enjoyed 67 per cent of the possession, but Twente have created the better chances.
    • 17' CHANCE! Wesley played Marc Janko onside, giving the striker a clear run on goal, but Bremen's Brazilian defender did well to recover and put Janko off.
    • 14' CHANCE! Nacer Chadli came back on his right foot on the left wing and picked out Luuk de Jong with a pinpoint cross. His header from the centre of the box was well saved in the bottom right corner by Sebastian Mielitz.
    • 14' Bargfrede charged down the right wing and pulled the ball back, but Nikolay Mihaylov cut it out.
    • 12' Werder fans are in full voice - hopefully it will inspire their team... because at the moment they're pretty stale.
    • 10' CHANCE! Bremen's Wesley cut in from left and hit a right footed shot low and hard towards the left hand bottom corner.... Nikolay Mihaylov got down to make a comfortable save.
    • 9' Corner from Bremen's Aaron Hunt is easily cleared by Twente.
    • 8' Nice work from Twente's Bryan Ruiz down the left wing... which is curtailed by a foul.
    • 7' It's been a bit of a scrappy start to the game. Possession being given away cheaply.
    • 5' Poor free kick, amounts to nothing.
    • 4' Torsten Frings fouls Marc Janko - free kick to Twente.
    • 2' Lively start from Werder.... Aaron Hunt feeds Wesley scampering down the left wing, he cuts in from the right, but miscues his shot and it flies high and wide. Nice approach play, poor finish.
    • 1' Werder Bremen get the first half underway.
    • 19:42 Champions League music booming out.... Time to step up and deliver for these two sets of players.
    • 19:41 The two teams are coming out onto the pitch.... The pressure is on tonight.
    • 19:38 Twente have gone a club record 35 Eredivisie games without losing at home, since a 2-0 defeat by AFC Ajax on 1 November 2008.
    • 19:36 Michel Preud'homme's side are six matches unbeaten and have lost just once in 17 outings this season.
    • 19:35 Twente have won their last five league games and are the only unbeaten side in the Dutch top flight having inflicted PSV's first defeat of the campaign.
    • 19:34 Twente have committed more fouls (60) than any other side with Roberto Rosales responsible for 12, the joint highest individual total in the Champions League.
    • 19:32 Bremen picked up just four points from their first five Bundesliga matches this season.
    • 19:30 Claudio Pizarro has scored in each of Bremen's last three games, including the opener against Bayern and a late effort in a 4-1 victory at VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach on 23 October. The latter strike took him past Giovane Elber (133 goals) as the leading non-German scorer in Bundesliga history; he now has 134 goals.
    • 19:27 Twente will take heart from the fact that Bremen have kept only two clean sheets in 17 fixtures this term, both away from home.
    • 19:27 Werder are not in good form ahead of this game... They have won just three of their last 12 games in all competitions.
    • 19:24 Twente, beaten 4-1 at Tottenham in their first Group A away game, won just one of six matches on the road in last season's UEFA Europa League, drawing three.
    • 19:22 Bremen are unbeaten in eight home matches in UEFA competition. They maintained that record by recovering a two-goal deficit to draw with Tottenham on Champions League matchday 1.
    • 19:21 Bremen's home record against Eredivisie opposition reads three wins, two draws and one defeat. Last season's 4-1 defeat of Twente was their third successive win against Dutch visitors by a three-goal margin following defeats of AFC Ajax (3-0) and AZ Alkmaar (4-1) in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup.
    • 19:19 Twente recorded two draws and four defeats on their six previous matches in Germany. They have scored only one goal on German soil – De Jong's strike at Bremen in February.
    • 19:13 In their previous meeting in the group Werder and Twente drew 1-1, with former Twente forward Marko Arnautović scoring a late equaliser for Bremen, leaving both teams on two points, two behind second-placed Tottenham.
    • 19:12 Both these sides are still seeking a first victory in Group A.
    • 19:11 And Twente: Mihailov, Rosales, Wisgerhof, Franco, Leugers, Landzaat, de Jong, Bengtsson, Ruiz, Janko, Chadli. Subs: Boschker, Parker, Vujicevic, Kastrati, Schimpelsberger, Stockerntree, John.
    • 19:10 Here's Werder Bremen's starting line-up: Mielitz, Bargfrede, Mertesacker, Prodl, Wesley, Frings, Jensen, Hunt, Pizarro, Marin, Hugo Almeida. Subs: Wiedwald, Arnautovic, Silvestre, Huseinovic, Kroos, Wagner, Andersen.
    • 19:02 Bremen recorded a 4-1 win against Twente when the Dutch side visited in last season's UEFA Europa League round
