Five minutes earlier, Twente had finally broken through and looked on-track to pull even with Tottenham Hotspur for second place in Group B. Now, the scales have been evened in Enschede, with visiting Werder Bremen equalizing through Marko Arnautovic in the 80th minute.
That’s when the Austrian prospect, brought on earlier in the half for Hugo Almedia, finished high into the net after being set-up by fellow striker Claudio Pizarro, pulling back a Theo Janssen goal that looked to give Twente three points. With both clubs having played the first 75 minutes without a goal, Twente’s first goal looked to be decisive. Instead, both clubs are on pace for their second draw in three matches.
Should that come to pass, both teams would sit behind Spurs ahead of the group play’s fourth round. Then, today’s fixtures will be reversed, with Twente in Bremen to take on Werder while Inter travels to London to face Spurs.
