Athletic Bilbao had to make do with second spot in their group after a 0-3 defeat against Werder Bremen on Wednesday. A young side needed a two goal victory to overtake their German rivals, but headed goals by Pizarro and Naldo in the first twenty minutes put paid to any hope, and Rosenberg wrapped things up with ten minutes of the first half still remaining. Toquero did try his luck after the restart, but by then there was little hope of a comeback.
