The goal sparked a reaction from the visitors and Divock Origi duly equalized before the break.
Argentine striker Lucas Alario restored Leverkusen’s lead with a cool finish to Wendell’s cross after Kevin Volland played the Brazilian defender through.

Both sides remained in the bottom half of the table.
Werder Bremen was seeking its first league win this season in the late game against visiting Borussia Moenchengladbach.
