Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored for Bayer Leverkusen, but departed in the second half through injury as his side bowed out of the DFB-Pokal with a 3-1 loss to Werder Bremen.

The Mexican star broke the ice from the penalty spot on 22 minutes only to watch Santiago Garcia and Claudio Pizarro give Werder Bremen a 2-1 lead at the half.

Chicharito was seen hobbling in the second half and left the match in the 57th minute with an apparent hamstring injury.

Florian Grillitsch then sealed the deal for Bremen as the visitors moved on to the semifinals of the competition.
