Thomas Delaney: "It's tough to take. The match was a battle. It really hurts to concede the goal so late on. We were more in the game than last week, but nonetheless we come away with nothing. We need to keep working and manage to pick up points again quickly. I have confidence in our approach. We need a successful result, we must pick up points."
Christoph Baumgartner: "We improved upon our recent matches, particularly in the first half. We handled several situations well but unfortunately we couldn't inflict the blow. The second half was then a pure battle. We unfortunately weren't cool enough to settle the game down, but that's in part down to our situation. I lacked the final precision in one situation, I'm sorry for that; otherwise, the game might have gone differently. In Dortmund, we're up against one of the best teams next week. Perhaps we'll succeed in striking back then. We'll continue to work hard."
Pellegrino Matarazzo (TSG Hoffenheim coach): "We played better than we did against Leverkusen. But for me, it's not enough to play a good 20 minutes in the first half. The substitution of Kevin Vogt harmed our build-up play. From that point on, the game was a pure battle, but we embraced that. It hurts to concede this goal. It was a 50/50 game, it could have also gone in our favour. We didn't always see the spaces and get in behind. I don't believe that the team looked unsettled today."
Enrico Maaßen (FC Augsburg coach): "Picking up points against a direct rival in the table is something that we haven't achieved yet. We managed it today and won 1-0 for the third home game in a row. It was very good that we stayed with it after such moments of apparent happiness, i.e. the two goals that weren't given. It the end it was a performance of desire, there were six men on the goal-line who all wanted to tap it in. I think it was a completely deserved victory."
