Schick goal rescues point for Leverkusen against Werder Bremen

Bayer Leverkusen had to come from behind to rescue a 1-1 draw against visitors Werder Bremen on Saturday and avoid a third straight Bundesliga loss.

Werder, who have won one of their last 12 league games, went ahead with Omer Toprak's close-range effort in the 52nd minute but Patrik Schick equalised on the rebound for the hosts following a lengthy VAR review in the 70th minute to earn a point.

Bayern Munich are top on 33 despite their 3-2 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday.
