FC Augsburg lost their first away game of the Rückrunde 3-1 at Borussia Dortmund. Here is the post-match reaction from Saturday’s game.
André Hahn: “Going 1-0 up put us in a great position, but we lost the ball too often when we had chances to break and the final pass was often lacking. This defeat won’t get the better of us though, as we’ve already proven that we are capable. We showed what we can do in some parts today too, however you can’t underestimate the quality Borussia Dortmund have.”
Jeffrey Gouweleeuw: “We started the first half well but we weren’t able to keep our lead. The foul for their first goal was unnecessary and we weren’t tight enough. We will carry on as we were and we are ready for the upcoming games. We are still holding our heads high after today.“
Ruben Vargas: “First of all, I’m happy that I was back involved today. Nevertheless, the most important thing is the result, so I’m disappointed we lost. We need to look ahead now and get our next points against Wolfsburg.”
Rafał Gikiewicz: “We lost today because we conceded three easy goals. We shouldn’t have given up a set piece and allowed them to equalise right after taking the lead, that was unnecessary. But, we win as a team and we lose as a team. We will take a different approach to the game against Wolfsburg. You have to admit that BVB also played really well today.”
Heiko Herrlich: “We wanted to be compact and create chances for ourselves on the counter. We were able to do that during the opening stages of the game and were rewarded by taking the lead in exactly that manner. It was frustrating that we then conceded soon after. I can’t blame the team, as they tried their best. Overall, BVB were the better team.”
Edin Terzic: “We’re very happy to have won today. The result wasn’t the only positive, as we’re also pleased with how we scored our goals. We didn’t get off to a good start, and our opponents took the lead with their first chance of the game. We also missed a penalty. However, today we managed to turn the game around and come back to win.”
