"It was an intense and physical game"

The thoughts of coach Ralf Rangnick, Yussuf Poulsen and Lukas Klostermann after the 1-0 win over 1. FC Nürnberg.

Ralf rangnick:

  • "It was a strenuous game, as expected, and it wasn't too enjoyable. Nürnberg were set up to be very tight in defence. We knew that beforehand though, so it didn't catch us off guard.

    It was more important to focus on the little things and do them right. We did that today. We therefore deserved the three points."

Yussuf Poulsen:

  • "It was a tough battle out there. In the past, we might not have won such games. It's good we've got players who are dangerous at set-pieces. In the end, we're going home with three points, and that's important."

goalscorer Lukas klostermann:

  • "It was an intense and physical game, with few chances for either side. The narrow margin of victory is fine. I'm very happy that we were able to claim the three points.

    I'm very proud of the team - we all got fully stuck in and gave it our all. All in all, we're currently doing well, both in defence and up front. Let's keep this going!"
