Cologne made a strong start with the Bremen home side, but could not convert their offensive power into goals.
Bremen managed this through captain Osako in the 22nd minute. There was a double blow by Rashica in the 27th and Füllkrug in the 29th minute by Füllkrug.
Afterwards Cologne collapsed. The Cologne team surrendered to their fate on the last match day without any ideas and without any bite.
After the break, Klaassen put the 4-0, Osako again in the 55th minute the 5-0, before Drexler scored for his Cologne goal for the 5-1 goal.
Sargent also made the goal difference "pro Werder" clear in the 68th minute and scored the final score of 6: 1.
Werder Bremen can thus hope to remain in the Bundesliga. Because the green-whites save themselves under coach Florian Kohfeldt on the last match day from the direct relegation zone to the relegation zone and send Fortuna Düsseldorf to League 2
And SVW coach Kohfeldt made his announcement before the game come true: "I am not sick, I have energy and I want to win this game - we believe in it!".
In the relegation games Werder Bremen either meets Heidenheim or there is a real north derby against Hamburger SV.
