In front of around 1000 spectators Bayer Leverkusen lost 2:1 to Fortuna Düsseldorf. Helmes scored the only goal for the Werkself after a cross by Sidney Sam. Simon Rolfes played 90 minutes and declared to Bayer04.de that he felt tired after 75 minutes but overall was very happy with his game. He could therefore make it into the starting line-up against Wolfsburg next week. Both Rolfes and the assistant of the head coach, Peter Herrmann, said that Leverkusen missed a lot of chances today, otherwise the result would have been different.
