Pizarro decisive as Bremen beats Hoffenheim 3-1 away

BERLIN (AP) Claudio Pizarro came on with eight minutes remaining and played a pivotal role in Werder Bremen's 3-1 victory at Hoffenheim in his third debut for the club on Sunday.

With the score tied at 1-1, Pizarro set up Anthony Ujah to give Bremen the lead in injury time before Zlatko Junuzovic completed the scoring with his second goal.

Junuzovic opened the scoring just before the break only for halftime substitute Eduardo Vargas to equalize four minutes after coming on. It was the Chile midfielder's first Bundesliga goal.
