Twente 1-0 Werder Bremen: Theo Janssen Back On The Scoresheet For Twente

As of this weekend, midfielder Theo Janssen was an injury doubt for FC Twente, but thankfully for Michel Preud’homme’s squad, the team’s most prolific midfielder recovered in time for today’s visit from Werder Bremen. Now, after Janssen’s 75th minute goal in Enschede, the Dutch international may be the only thing separating Twente from their German counterparts, both in this match and in Champion League Group A’s table.

With his left-footed finish from inside the edge of the six, Janssen may have thrown Twente back into the race for second place. With Tottenham Hotspur being routed in Milan, the Dutch champions can move to four points, even with Spurs behind Internazionale’s seven.

For Janssen, it was his second goal of Champions League, having scored against Inter on the holder’s round one visit to the Netherlands. In the Eredivisie, the midfielde rhas posted three goals in nine matches.
