4. UEFA CUP: Blackburn falls on Schneider gem
American goalie Brad Freidel could
do nothing about a sublime finish by German international Bernd Schneider that gave German
club Bayer Leverkusen a 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday in
the first leg of their UEFA Cup round-of-32 series in Leverkusen.
Schneider back-heeled a cross from Gonzalo
Castro to give Leverkusen the win after the first half ended in
a 2-2 tie.
Werder Bremen, second in the Bundesliga, beat Ajax, 3-0, on second-half
goals by Per Mertesacker, Naldo and Torsten Frings.
