Claudio Pizarro set up a goal and scored a historic one as Werder Bremen came from behind to beat Mainz 3-1. Niko Bungert gave Mainz the lead after 23 minutes only to see Pizarro equalise in the 29th minute, his 150th Bundesliga goal. Aaron Hunt made it 2-1 for Bremen after 47 minutes and Sebastian Prodl sealed the win 12 minutes from time. Mainz coach Thomas Tuchel was forced to make a substitution after just 15 minutes with Julian Baumgartlinger coming in for Nikolce Noveski. The first chance of the game was also the first goal as Bungert headed Yanus Malli's corner from the right just inside the right post from 10 yards out. Bremen equalised just six minutes later as Pizarro worked his way around four Mainz defenders before chipping Mainz goalkeeper Christian Wetklo for his eighth goal of the season and 150th of his Bundesliga career - extending his record as top foreign-born goal scorer. Mainz had two fine chances in the 32nd minute but could not take advantage of them and Bremen goalkeeper Tim Wiese made a superb save from Anthony Ujah's header from about six yards out three minutes before the break. Bremen grabbed the lead two minutes after the restart as Pizarro poked the ball over to Hunt, who unleashed a rocket from 23 yards into the top corner. The visitors could have sealed the win on the hour but Markus Rosenberg could not beat Wetklo one-on-one. However, Bremen did make sure of the points with 12 minutes to play. Prodl headed Hunt's free kick off the post but reacted first to stab the rebound home.
