Diego Self-sacrifices for Bremen

Two German teams—Werder Bremen and Hamburg SV--will meet in the other semi-final of the UEFA Cup. The two sides, who won the first legs of their quarter-final matches, had to produce serious efforts to secure qualification in the return legs.


Brazilian playmaker Diego (pictured left) was again a huge presence for Werder Bremen against Italian side Udinese (3:3). But his double in the game brought him a loss of more than 10 rating points: the Brazilian earned an enormous amount of rating points (27.70) on March 15 when he helped destroy Vfb Stuttgart (4:0). Despite the slip, Diego continues to top the rating of midfielders in the Bundesliga with 132.14 points. He missed out on a hat-trick when his penalty was saved. But teammate Claudio Pizarro made sure Werder were in the semis with a goal just a minute later.

Italian international Fabio Quagliarella had a double for Udinese, taking his overall rating to 100.48 points.

In another quarter-final, Manchester City beat Hamburg SV 2:1 but still fell short of their qualification goal: the German had won 3:1 at home, which gave them a 4:3 victory on aggregate.
