Wiese given 3-match ban
Werder Bremen goalkeeper Tim Wiese was on Monday banned for three matches following his red card in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich, the German football federation announced.
Wiese was sent off in the 88th minute for an ill-considered last ditch attempt to stop goal advancing Thomas Muller.
He was replaced by 21-year-old Sebastian Mielitz who is set to stand in for Werder's number one stopper in the games against Mainz 05, Hanover and Hamburg.
The suspension comes at a difficult time for Bremen who are languishing fourth from bottom, three points off the relegation zone.
