Christian Streich (Coach SC Freiburg): “When you see the energy coming onto the pitch at Mainz, if you don’t do everything to counter it, then you’ll be eaten up here.

If When a team performs like that after the unfortunate defeat against Juve, I can only take my hat off.”

Bayer Leverkusen – Bayern Munich 2:1

Union Berlin – Eintracht Frankfurt (2-0)

Oliver Glasner (Eintracht Frankfurt coach): “Had ifs and buts. I’m cautious because anything I say today can and will be used against me. And that’s why it’s better to keep my mouth shut today.”

Borussia Dortmund – 1. FC Cologne (6:1)

Edin Terzic (Trainer Borussia Dortmund): “Every win is important. Of course, the mood wasn’t great last week – but we’ve got 28 of the last 30 points in the league. It was a successful and enjoyable evening, it was a really good game from goalkeeper to striker . We can all praise.”

VfB Stuttgart – VfL Wolfsburg (0:1)

Bruno Labbadia (coach VfB Stuttgart): “We didn’t gain access in the first half. We didn’t behave very well tactically. Wolfsburg are a good team, they’re well-rehearsed, Niko did a good job. In the second half we decided to be a lot more courageous up front We had to attack a few times but we didn’t have the punch.”

Niko Kovac (Coach VfL Wolfsburg): “I’m very happy with the performance and the result. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. But we didn’t allow anything worth mentioning. We can be very happy today.”

We pushed again from the back, played power play, but didn’t take advantage of our huge chances. It ended up being a disappointing defeat.”

FC Augsburg – Schalke 04 (1:1)

Enrico Maassen (FC Augsburg coach): “We were a slightly better team up to the goal in an intense battle. The red card was the crux of the matter, after that it was just a matter of defending it away. We did that very well. The moment when we get the penalty is then very angry. The minimum goal was to keep Schalke at bay, and we did that.”

Thomas Reis (Schalke 04 coach): “In the first half, I completely lacked conviction in my team, I addressed that very clearly at half-time. We were second winners every time we played the second ball, which was very, very annoying. Then we invited Augsburg to score a goal The red card helped us a lot, but we solved it very, very badly there too. But we never gave up, we’re happy to take the point and we don’t have to be ashamed of it.”

Borussia Monchengladbach – Werder Bremen (2:2)

Daniel Farke (Borussia Monchengladbach coach): “We deserved the win, so the late equalizer feels like a loss. We played a first-class game, created a lot of chances. But you also have to create chances. Who knows, maybe this point will still be valuable, too when it just doesn’t feel like it.”

Ole Werner (Werder Bremen coach): “We started with a lot of handicaps and had to do without an incredible number of players. In the second half we certainly had less time. But we came back twice, that commands a lot of respect from me. All in all, it was a well-deserved point for them Circumstances.”
