Werder Bremen came out of Hoffenheim's home victorious on Matchday 9 after Niclas Füllkrug converted a late, controversial penalty. Hoffenheim trainer Andre Breitenreiter felt Mitchell Weiser went down far too easily in the box.

Following the game, Breitenreiter stated that, "(Weiser) did it very cleverly. We are all footballers too and know very well that he uses this contact for himself. He doesn't have to fall."
Weiser then defended himself and said, "(Nsoki) pulls my leg away. I took another step with my right leg, but then I lost my balance and fell. For me it's a clear penalty."
However, Breitenreiter understands that Hoffenheim had their chances to find an equalizer, as they registered far more total shots: "The fact is, we have to take a good look at ourselves, we had enough chances."
