Werder Bremen go clear in Europa Cup group

German side Werder Bremen moved three points clear at the top of Europa League Group L after seeing off Athletic Bilbao 3-1 despite losing Peter Niemeyer to a red card just five minutes after he appeared as a second-half substitute.Meanwhile, in Group K, Otman Bakkal’s first-half header was enough for PSV Eindhoven to claim their opening win at home to CFR Cluj.

Bakkal scored the game’s only goal after nine minutes when the impressive Balazs Dzsudzsak picked him out with a cross, but the hosts had to withstand a Cluj onslaught as they nervously held on.

Meanwhile, in the other group game, Senegalese striker Dame Ndoye’s first-half goal proved the difference as FC Copenhagen recorded their opening victory with a 1-0 win over Sparta Prague.
