Tietz: “An incredible performance and statement win”

Post-match reaction to 6-0 victory in Darmstadt

FC Augsburg celebrated a historic 6-0 win away at promoted SV Darmstadt 98 on Saturday afternoon. Read on for all the post-match reaction to today's record-setting victory.

Finn Dahmen: “I’ve never experienced anything like that before in the Bundesliga. We did an extremely good job, were clinical in front of goal and were enjoying ourselves on the pitch. Darmstadt were unlucky, also because we forced them into making errors in their build-up play. That played right into our hands. All of a sudden, it was 5-0 and we had just one goal for the second half: to keep a clean sheet. Thank God we managed to achieve that too, and overall it was a great performance.” 

Phillip Tietz: “I only have good memories from my time at Darmstadt, so I was feeling emotional even before kick off. I owe the club a lot, which is why it wouldn’t have been right to celebrate after my goals. I’m extremely happy about the three points and our incredible performance, in a statement win for us. It’s good for us to take it week by week – we’ll celebrate this win today and enjoy tomorrow as well, but then we’ll direct our focus to Heidenheim. We want to give our fans reason to celebrate once again.” 

Ermedin Demirović: 
“It was an extremely good performance from us. We started well into the match, pressed hard and were clinical enough to score many goals in the first half. I’ve been asked a lot about the goalscoring record – I just feel really good at the moment and that makes it possible to achieve something like this. We wanted to prove that Augsburg can play good football and that we’re an attractive club to watch. Augsburg can do better than just finish in 15th.” 

Jess Thorup (FC Augsburg head coach): “After a strong performance against Freiburg, we really wanted to make it back-to-back wins. We put our opponents under pressure right from the start, played great football and scored some nice goals. Our biggest away win in our Bundesliga history, Demi’s goalscoring record and Finn’s first clean sheet – I’m very happy about all of that. At half time we spoke about wanting to continue to attack and to come out on top in the second half as well. Congratulations to the team on this fully-deserved win.” 

Torsten Lieberknecht (SV Darmstadt 98 head coach): “Everyone saw the course this game took. The first minutes proved that mistakes lead to goals. It’s telling that we had a chance to make it 1-1 but couldn’t capitalise on it. I’m the first to take the blame and take up responsibility, that’s always been my way as a coach. I will take the time to draw the right conclusions from this game – the important thing was that we ended the second half with the right mindset and that we didn’t let ourselves break down even more than we already had.”
