    Good morning, America. 'Kicker' again sees things differently to Bild, with the exception of Tyler Adams. Bremen's match-winner Sargent gets a 2, though Kicker almost always gives goal-scorers good grades, especially if it's a decisive goal. He was also unlucky not to get an assist on a third Bremen goal that was cancelled out by a very marginal VAR offside call. Hoppe, subbed out for hapless Schalke, only merits a 5.5. Reyna gets a 3.5, likewise Richards.

    Appreciate you following up with Kicker ratings as well. Thought it was Reyna's best match in awhile, and he was a big part of several good chances. I don't blame the ref for too quick a whistle on the BVB penalty as it was obvious and if not for Reus unexpectedly falling on the ball the keeper looked destined to gobble it up before Reyna tucked it home.
