BVB coach Thomas Tuchel was satisfied with his side's 3-0 victory in Trier. Taking an early lead helped us to settle down, he explained in an interview with ARD. Here are the initial reactions.

Thomas Tuchel: "I'm very happy. The result is the most important thing in the Cup. Taking an early lead settled us down. In the second half we created a lot more gilt-edged chances. We could and should have definitely scored a few more goals tonight. The bottom line is that we can build on this game. Felix Passlack made use of his time on the pitch; from the very first second you could see that he was determined to accomplish a lot. You could see that throughout our entire pre-season preparations, that's why he played against Bayern Munich and then again today."

André Schürrle: "I've never experienced something quite like that. My first competitive start, then I take a knock so that I can hardly run any more, score a goal and then clash with the goalkeeper and cut my chin. But at least we won the match."

Felix Passlack: "We played very well tonight, especially in the first-half. If we had been more clinical then we would've scored more goals. The entire team is giving me support, as well as tips and advice, about things I can do better. When we play in the Bundesliga on Saturday against Mainz, we need to play exactly like we did here tonight but be more clinical with our chances."

Peter Rubeck (Trier's coach): "I'm not satisfied, especially with what I saw in the first half. In the second half we really put in an effort, but the opponent dropped off a little bit too. I don't want to say that the team didn't give everything, but we should've had more confidence in ourselves. Today I saw which players I need to take a different approach to in the future."

Chris Keilmann (Trier's goalkeeper): "We can be happy. We didn't want to be overrun and wanted to put on a good show for the fans. We shouldn't have conceded two of the three goals, but that can happen against such a strong team. We can live with a 3-0 defeat." (fu)
