News in brief: Limbering up on the Med – #HBSB04 on Werks11 Radio

Warm sea air plus the sound of breaking waves in their ears: The Werkself chose a very special place for their obligatory matchday walk ahead of the Europa League clash with Hapoel Beer Sheva. Our news in brief reveals the broadcasters for #HBSB04.

After breakfast and a morning rest, head coach Peter Bosz led his players on a walk along the beach promenade in Tel Aviv in sunshine and temperatures over 20 degrees at lunchtime. Several Werkself players took the opportunity to take snapshots of the Mediterranean and the long beach.


On Thursday evening (kick-off: 18.55 CET) in Petach Tikwa, a few kilometres east of Tel Aviv, Lukas Hradecky and Co. have a Europa League away game at Hapoel Beer Sheva. It is also the first competitive match for the Werkself on Israeli soil.

Werks11 Radio starts broadcasting half an hour before kick-off with the duo reporting live from the BayArena. Log on to from 18.25 CET or via the Bayer 04 app.

The game against Be’er Sheva will also be shown on the streaming service DAZN. Lukas Schönmüller is the commentator and the former second division player Sebastian Kneißl is the pundit.

Get well message to London

As announced by Chelsea on Wednesday, Kai Havertz has tested positive for coronavirus. The Bayer 04 homegrown talent is currently self-isolating according to the top English club and was therefore unable to play in Wednesday night’s 3-0 home win against Stade Rennes in the Champions League.

Havertz signed for the Premier League club in the summer after ten years at Bayer Leverkusen where, according to sporting managing director Rudi Völler, he developed into a “world class” player. Bayer 04 say: Get well soon, Kai!
