    Time:90'
    • Hamburger SV
    • Werder Bremen
    • 90+3 The replay shows no foul so fair enough, Bremen go down the other end but Benjamin sweeps up and that's the whistle! Bremen to face Shakhtar in the final! Hamburg blow it and Martin Jol is distraught.
    • 90+2 Corner to Hamburg, Rost comes up for it and it misses everyone and Pitroipa now on the right puts it low in and ROST CONTROLS AND HE GOES DOWN BUT NO PENALTY!
    • 90+1 Almeida wins a throw in the corner, pushes Benjamin and he and Benjamin kick off and Almeida is booked. Almeida misses the final for a pointless push. Moron.
    • 89' BREMEN SUB: Pizarro off after running himself ragged today.
    • 87' Pitroipa swings a high one to the far post and Fritz watches it go over his head AND OLIC DIVES IN WITH A HEADER OFF THE GROUND INTO THE TOP RIGHT! 3-2! One more goal would do it for Hamburg! What drama!
    • 85' Free-kick to Hamburg on the left, flicked on AND PETRIC MUST SCORE BUT STRAIGHT AT WIESE!! Surely that was offside but no the flag stayed down! Petric was a yard off at least. Lucky linesman.
    • 83' The corner is swung over and flicked on by Almeida, great save by Rost BUT BAUMANN HURLS HIMSELF AT THE FAR POST AND HEADS IT IN! 3-1 ON THE NIGHT AND 3-2 ON AGGREGATE! One foor in the final!
    • 82' The ball hits a paper cup thrown on the pitch, bobbling away from Gravgaard making him slice it out for a corner. Some idiot could have costed Hamburg here...
    • 79' Free-kick to Bremen on the right and he swings it ambitiously on goal but Rost punches clear.
    • 78' Trochowski takes and it's in the back of the net but there was a push in there. Looked harsh.
    • 77' HAMBURG SUB: Agogo on for Jansen as the corner is put behind for another one.
    • 76' Baumann pokes the ball behind after Jansen almost set up Petric...
    • 75' Pizarro with another brilliant turn and he sends himself clean through and this could be three but Rost flies out to block at his feet!
    • 73' HAMBURG SUB: Silva limps off for Collin Benjamin.
    • 72' Diego swings in the corner but headed over by Proedl.
    • 71' Diego comes forward, looks to the right but slips it left to Pizarro racing in, he sends it low looking for Almeida but too far ahead of him and put behind for a corner.
    • 70' Trochowski on the ball, his effort is blocked, now Olic on the edge of the box, he falls as he plays it to SILVA WITH THE LOW DRIVE BUT A GREAT PARRY FROM WIESE!
    • 69' Petric gets in round the back of the Bremen defence and stumbles as he tries to play it to Pitroipa but the visitors clear.
    • 68' Long-range free-kick for the hosts but straight at Wiese.
    • 66' Pizarro on halfway with his back to goal, he turns into space and zips towards the Hamburg half and he unleashes a swerving, dripping drive AND A HORRORSHOW FOR ROST WHO LETS IT SQUIRM PAST AT THE NEAR POST AND 2-1! Bremen take the lead with a vital second away goal!! It's 2-2 on aggregate but, as it stands, Bremen go through!!
    • 64' Jansen plays a good cross in and Petric goes down claiming a handball off Proedel but nothing given, corner.
    • 62' BREMEN SUB: Almeida on for Rosenborg.
    • 61' Petric rolls around in the box but it was a superb slide tackle from Proedl.
    • 59' Hamburg are forward, Jansen is in on the left and he drills it low AND A WONDERFUL BALL TAKES WIESE OUT AND PITROIPA SLIDES IN BUT JUST MISSES TROCHOWSKI AND AT THE FAR POST WITH A LOW FINISH BUT SAVED BY WIESE'S LEGS!!
    • 54' BREMEN SUB: Proedl came on for Mertesacker a few minutes back, missed in the row about that Pizarro free-kick.
    • 57' Boenisch is down hurt, Petric accidentally trod on his foot as he rode that challenge.
    • 56' Petric gets through but a great sliding challenge from Boenisch!
    • 54' Pizarro is penalised for challenging Rost after he seemed to fumble in the box, that looked dubious!
    • 52' Pizarro flies in with a header and it's in the back of the net but the flag is up! That was close...
    • 50' Jarolim is the next to be carded...
    • 48' Naldo booked for a foul on Pitroipa
    • 46' Second half underway!
    • 45+2 Half-time, 1-1 on the night and 2-1 to Hamburg on aggregate!
    • 45' Two minutes added time being played...
    • 43' Petric plays in Olic and Mertesacker slides in to put it out for a throw. Mertesacker is rolling around in agony when if he was that hurt he'd be immobile. Olic caught him ever slow slightly and clearly accidentally.
    • 42' Fritz gets in down the right and pulls it back for Pizarro but intercepted by Mathijsen, who clears.
    • 40' Silva and Diego clash, hands are raised, Silva started it and both are booked and oh no Diego is out of the final! It seems Diego dived, hence Silva's response and Diego's reaction.
    • 38' Hamburg break and Olic comes in on the left to rifle it in low but Wiese saves behind for a corner!
    • 36' Diego around 30 yards out, he cuts in AND UNLEASHES AN AMAZING SWERVING TOP THAT RATTLES THE BAR AND IS HACKED AWAY! It was a great save by Rost!
    • 34' There's a row developing after Hamburg played on Frings went down when Fritz accidentally caught him in the face... someone should point out that it's the ref's decision in all instances.
    • 32' Olic goes into the back of Diego but the ref continues his policy of leniency and keeps his cards inside.
    • 31' Still Bremen coming forward but Hamburg sit deep and clear.
    • 30' Bremen are now in the ascendance, playing it around with confidence in the Hamburg half...
    • 29' Bremen come forward, Diego cuts inside and out, drifts into space and plays it to Pizarro, who plays a deft flick into the box and Diego has continued with a diagonal run AND HE'S CLEAN THROUGH TO LOFT A BEAUTIFUL CHIPPED FINISH OVER WIESE FOR 1-1! Lovely goal by Bremen, 2-1 to Hamburg on aggregate and another Bremen goal would put them ahead!
    • 27' Frings and Olic collide on the Bremen right and the visitors get the free-kick...
    • 25' Jansen gets forward and Olic is through again but he can't get the shot away, cleared by Mertesacker.
    • 21' Pitroipa with a dodgy challenge and he could get a third yellow that would rule him out of the final but the ref just has a word. Phew.
    • 19' Free-kick to Bremen, around 30 yards out, Diego to take... he plays it close to NALDO but his low shot hits Rosenberg and goes out for a goal kick.
    • 18' Wiese gets hold of the ball after Naldo almost let Pizarro in.
    • 16' Corner to Hamburg on the left, Petric nods it back across goal but cleared by Bremen.
    • 14' High one in from the left, Rosenberg handles on the edge of the box and he claims he was pushed but the ref waves it away.
    • 12' Mathijsen plays a through ball that releases Olic, great pace from the Croatian to race clear of the defence and he slides it past Rost for 1-0! 2-0 on aggregate, Hamburg really in the driving seat now.
    • 11' Rosenberg gets down the right and swings over a good cross AND PIZARRO MUST SCORE BUT HE HEADS OVER! What a chance! But the replay shows Mathijsen pulled Pizarro's shirt, a lucky escape!
    • 9' Corner to Hamburg on the right but a foul by the hosts on Mertesacker, free-kick Bremen.
    • 6' Pizarro drifts offside, not concentrating when Diego played him in.
    • 3' Cagey start with Hamburg keen not to have their away goal cancelled out.
