Hoffenheim's Geiger ends goal drought in Bremen draw

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 437

Hoffenheim midfielder Dennis Geiger scored his first Bundesliga goal in three years to secure a 1-1 draw at Werder Bremen on Sunday. 

The point leaves Sebastian Hoeness' Hoffenheim without a win in three league games since they beat champions Bayern Munich 4-1 in September.

Bremen's Maximilian Eggestein turned in a fizzing cross from Theodor Gebre Selassie to give the hosts an early lead.

Yet the goal would remain Bremen's only shot on goal in the first half, as Hoffenheim increasingly took control of the game.

They were rewarded on 22 minutes as Robert Skov set up Geiger, who fired a fine first-time finish under the bar.

Skov came closest to breaking the deadlock in the second half, thundering a vicious free-kick against the bar with ten minutes to play.

Having narrowly escaped relegation last year, Bremen have lost just one of their first five games this season and currently sit in sixth place.

Hoffenheim's attention, meanwhile, now turns to their upcoming Europa League clash with Belgian side Gent on Thursday.
