Josh Sargent thinks Werder Bremen is trending upward.

The in-form American teenager added another assist on Saturday as his Bundesliga side drew 2-2 away to Bayer Leverkusen.

Sargent took a flick and moved between two defenders to lay off for Davy Klaassen’s equalizer ay BayArena.

Sargent, 19, now has two goals and two assists on the season, all but one goal coming in his last four matches. Those have all been draws against decent competition, as Borussia Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt, Hertha Berlin, and Bayer have accounted for three 2-2 score lines and a 1-1.

Sargent has started Bremen’s last five matches in the Bundesliga and six of its last seven.

The Missouri native is getting incredibly valuable experience, and growing in confidence.

Bremen is up 12th with 10 points, and sees its tough run of fixtures turn murderous. Next up are Freiburg, Schalke, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Wolfsburg.

Of the eight-opponent run, only 11th place Hertha sits lower than ninth.
