Head coach Oliver Glasner: “I’m so proud of the players’ performances. Chris Lenz went off injured and we had to improvise. Not everything worked perfectly but the commitment and passion that the guys supported one another with is unbelievable. We saw some great goals. Daichi used the space well for his strike, then for the second goal we took the ball up very quickly and did very well. Marseille really pushed us to the limit. We wobbled a few times but when we did, Kevin was there to save us. It was a very good team performance, including from those who came on as subs. I’m incredibly proud to be coach of a team with so much character. The fans were also there to help us during some of the tougher parts of the match. It was a great Champions League night, and I hope it won’t be the last one we get to enjoy this season.”
Djibril Sow: “It’s great to be able to give the fans the win because they were behind us, spurring us on right from kick-off. Marseille were tired by the end, they were pressing us all the way through and we managed the game well through to the final whistle. I hope that we can carry this through to mid-November. Every game in this group is in the balance. The first time we played them, we were the better side in the first half but we were a bit naive. We’ve developed as a team since then though and we want to prove that next Tuesday.”
Our mindset really is what stands out. Everyone’s busting a gut for the team, and the strength we showed in defence is what helped us win the match.

Randal Kolo Muani: “I’m so pleased about my first Champions League goal but first and foremost, I want to thank my team for making it possible. This win at home has made history and we’ll be in with a chance in Lisbon if we play like this again. Our mindset really is what stands out. Everyone’s busting a gut for the team, and the strength we showed in defence is what helped us win the match.”
