Oliver Baumann: “We played a very good second half, were more courageous and built up a lot of pressure. Unfortunately, we were lacking clear goalscoring opportunities. That makes the defeat very bitter of course, but we need to build on the second half. It gives us courage for next week. In the first half we lost the ball due to Leipzig’s pressing, which enabled them to score the goal. They exploited that well and our performance was mediocre. We were not so present with the ball. In terms of the table, it will remain tight until the end. I’m convinced that we have the quality to stay up. We had a negative run and came out of it. Everyone is aware that we must give everything.”

Kevin Akpoguma: “We can be satisfied with the second half. The performance was better and would’ve perhaps deserved a point. Every point counts in the current situation in the table, so we’re disappointed. We’re still above the line and have it in our own hands. Next week we want to win and take a big step – even though I will miss out through suspension.”

Grischa Prömel: “Physically I’m doing well, the ankle didn’t cause any problems. It was a tough time for me having to watch the team and only training alone for months. We all know what’s at stake in the next games; we’re fighting to stay up. We’re clear in our minds and need to go to our limit in the coming weeks, I want to contribute to that and help the team.”

Ihlas Bebou: “I should’ve scored the goal because I was unmarked for the shot. It’s tight in the table. In the last two games, we haven’t shown what made us strong in the weeks beforehand. We were well in the game in the second half today and it is difficult to overturn a deficit against Leipzig. We have to show our strengths again and then I’m convinced we can get three points next week.”

Pellegrino Matarazzo: “We played a decent game, even if the first half was too error-strewn to get something tangible in Leipzig. We were a lot stabler in the second half but we created too few major chances. The energy on the pitch was right. We’re aware of the situation, we know what’s in store for us. The match today showed that we’re ready for what awaits us against Frankfurt on Saturday.”

Marco Rose (RB Leipzig coach): “I saw a very good first half in which we had lots of chances to score. After the break, we no longer did quite so well and lost control. You could feel the energy drop off, which is why we made four changes after the hour. We kept a clean sheet today and are delighted with the victory.”
