Freiburg match reaction

We gathered the thoughts of Markus Gisdol, Christian Streich and a few players after TSG's 3-3 draw with SC Freiburg.

Markus Gisdol: It was a thrilling match. We got into the game well, but then gifted two goals to the opponents. Luckily we pulled one back just before half-time. We played really well in the second-half, but then took another step back because of the penalty. I'm not completely happy because I feel that we could have won the game.

Christian Streich: After they made it 2-1, it was clear that Hoffenheim were beginning to up the pressure. We then made it 3-2 at a stage where it wasn't really expected. Then we got the red card, I can't understand why. After that, it was simply a matter of waiting until their equaliser came. We haven't been the worst side in our games; we just haven't had the luck. It would be nice if we could hold on to a lead until the final whistle.

Jannik Vestergaard: The goals we conceded tonight were definitely avoidable. They all come from individual errors. But despite being behind, we fought and worked hard and showed morale. It wasn't a great match, but that doesn't always have to be the case. After fighting back and creating chances, I think that our equaliser was deserved. It wasn't only a great feeling for me to start, but also to score. The most important thing is that I was able to help the team – that was really pleasing.

Niklas Süle: There was room for improvement in the first-half and we proved that after the break. Our build-up play wasn't great at the start for example. There wasn't enough movement and we played too many long balls. Things went better in the second 45. The goals we conceded came from our own mistakes and shouldn't happen.

Kevin Volland: Personally, I'm not pleased with the result. After coming back, you can live with only getting one point, but you can't really be happy. The first goal game from a silly error from me – that definitely shouldn't be happening. The other goals we conceded were also due to individual mistakes and risky situations. We were too sloppy at times. The only positive thing that I can take out of this match is the morale that the team showed.
