My goodness, does Aron Johannsson just love a nice arc or what?
The Icelandic-Alabaman (Alabamian?) is making the most of rare playing time for Werder Bremen, adding to his role in two weekend goals by scoring his first goal since September 2016 in Tuesday’s German Cup match vs. Bayer Leverkusen.

You’ll likely recall Johannsson’s gorgeous scooped pass that helped set up Bremen’s match-winner at Schalke on Saturday.
That helped Johansson, who had played four matches for a total of 12 minutes before the weekend, get a start on Tuesday. He did not disappoint, though Bayer came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the relegation-threatened visitors 4-2.
