Havertz stars as Bayer Leverkusen brush past Werder Bremen

Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz has praised Florian Wirtz for his debut performance in Monday's 4-1 victory over Werder Bremen at Weserstadion.

The Germany worldwide scored twice for his side to help them to a 4-1 win. Kai Havertz was in excellent form for the travelling side as he scored twice.

Havertz, 20, has become one of the hottest properties in world football, with Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham all reported to be interested in the attacking midfielder. Any chance that Leverkusen have of keeping the talented 20-year-old will likely hinge on whether they are able to finish in a Champions League spot this season.

They are now winless in their last 10 home games - a club record in the Bundesliga - and on course to be relegated for the first time since 1979-80.

The hosts suddenly sparked to life and restored parity out of the blue just two minutes later as Theodor Gebre Selassie pressed Leonardo Bittencourt's corner kick over the line.

With no spectators present in the stadium as part of the COVID-19 precautions, the game descended into a lull before a frantic five-minute spell produced three goals midway through the first half.

He has linked up well with Kai Havertz this season, scoring four times in 20 appearances so far in this campaign, which has sparked interest at both home and overseas. Leverkusen wrapped up the win in the second half with a further two goals.

Havertz was left completely unmarked to head home from eight metres after Kerem Demirbay floated in an inch-perfect free kick and Bremen fell apart in the second half as the visitors carved them open nearly at will. "Now we want to continue like this on Saturday in Monchengladbach", Havertz said.
