Despite chances for both sides, FCA drew 0-0 with SC Paderborn in their midweek game. “The game could have ended 2-2 or 3-3,” stated Heiko Herrlich after the stalemate.
Daniel Baier: “Every point is helpful for us in our current situation. We wanted to continue from Sunday and win again tonight. But we need to play better and take our chances to do that. Keeping a clean sheet was important. We weren’t at our best in the final third. Paderborn came at us in the second half – they needed to win. We good chances at the end, but we’ll take the point.”
Florian Niederlechner: “Paderborn played really well, but we’ll take the draw as every point is important to us. We’ve now got an important game coming up in Berlin. We want to take something from that game as well. We need to recover from tonight quickly to be ready.”
Andreas Luthe: “Every point is important. Unfortunately, we weren’t as clinical as we were on Sunday at Schalke. A second clean sheet is a big positive though. Paderborn were dangerous and tried to win, but we also showed that we wanted to keep the points in Augsburg. At the end of the day, you need to be clever and secure a draw.”
Ruben Vargas: “We knew it would be extremely tough today. I had a few chances and could have scored. I’ll definitely be annoyed when I see them back on TV. This week has been tiring, but now we need to turn our focus to Hertha. They are in good form; however we still want to take points there.”
Heiko Herrlich: “Both teams wanted to win the game. We found it difficult for a big part of the game, however we had chances to win it at the end. The game could have ended 2-2 or 3-3. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us to ensure we stay up, but we’ll take the point. We need to work on our pass accuracy.”
Steffen Baumgart: “It was an intense game from both sides. We had chances to win it, but we didn’t take them. It’s annoying to only go home with a point, but we’ll have to live with it. We could have taken more from the game as we played really well. We just didn’t get our reward for our performance.”
