Mario Götze bemoaned the lack of clinical finishing after the 2-2 draw with Hertha. "Today we weren't so efficient," he said. His frustration was shared by Jadon Sancho, the scorer of both goals. "We should've killed the game," the youngster said. Roman Bürki added: "We need to see the positives: this point could prove to be important."

Mario Götze: "It feels like a defeat when you look at the balance of play. It's two points dropped. We didn't use the big chances we had in the second half. The big plus is how we defend and create chances to score as a unit. We turn on the speed at the right moments. Today was the first time we weren't so efficient. As a result it finished 2-2."

Jadon Sancho: "That wasn't deserved, we should've won. We should've killed the game, that's what frustrates us. I'm very disappointed because we worked really hard as a team. We simply had a bit of bad luck this time. We'll do a better job next time. Everyone is working for each other, and the success will continue to come if we adhere to that."

Roman Bürki: "It's very disappointing because we were leading until the last minute, then gave away a silly penalty. The mood is downbeat so soon after the match, but we mustn't forget that we didn't lose today and still haven't been beaten at all in the first nine rounds of the Bundesliga season. We're on the right track. We played against a team that wants to be competing at the top. With a bit of luck we might've won the game. We need to see the positives: the point could prove to be important at the end of the season."

Lucien Favre: "We're a little disappointed but we need to accept that sport is like that, football is like that. We deserved to win this game."

Pal Dardai (Hertha Berlin coach): "Dortmund have world-class forwards and you can't always defend against them. You can't defend against their second goal. If Dortmund don't use their chances on the counter, we've got a shot. The point isn't undeserved."
