- "We started with a very attacking line-up to try and put pressure on our opponent from the off. In the first half, we did that sucessfully for large parts. However, we failed to put the game to bed. We're disappointed.
In the Bundesliga, it's not good enough to play well for 45 minutes! That was clear as day this evening. Now it's important to make the right steps going forward to learn for future games. This isn't the only reason we lost today. We also lacked the coolness in front of goal to see the game off."
- "We should have had the game wrapped up by half-time! We had plenty of chances. We could have been 4-0 up at the break. However, we were too wasteful.
In football, you get punished when you don't take your chances and that's what happened today. It's a tough pill to swallow this one."
- "We were very good in the first half and played at a good tempo. We created numerous chances but only converted one. We missed the chance to secure the win before half-time.
It's the means in which we missed the chances in the first half that hurts. In the second half, we lost our fluidity. We couldn't turn the game back around."
- "We let our performance levels slip in the second half. We started losing duels. At the moment, we have a tough schedule but we have to knuckle down and get through it. I don't think our loss today is down to fatigue.
If you want to win, you have to take your chances in front of goal. If you don't, you get punished. That's what happened today."
