RB Leipzig defeated FC Augsburg 3-2 on Bundesliga matchday 28.
Here’s what Timo Werner, Kevin Kampl and Max Eberl had to say on the game.
- “It was a good performance from us all in the first half. We were all a bit frustrated with how the recent games had gone up until the Dortmund game, when things weren’t going too well. I think we were all a bit drained.
Not everything went as well as we’d have liked in the second half, but at the moment we are finding ways to win however we can. That gets us to where we want to be.”
- “We conceded with their first shot on goal, which is obviously frustrating. But we remained calm and kept working. Our reaction was superb and we levelled the game.
I think we made the game unnecessarily exciting in the second half. We shouldn’t have done that; we shouldn’t have allowed the game to be so open. We needed to be cleaner in our play. The way the fans pushed us after conceding the early goal was really good . We’re back in a good run of form.”
- “We learnt from going behind early. We were a lot more secure than we were against Mainz and were deservedly 3-1 ahead at half time. The first ten minutes of the second half were also good. In the final half an hour, we invested a lot and ran a lot but we weren’t accurate with our passes.
When they made it 3-2, you start to worry that you’re going to let it slip, so today was a bit of a boost for us mentally. After three defeats, we’re back in some good form. But we have to keep fighting to consolidate our place in the table.”
