At the post-match press conference, Lucien Favre was not only asked about the game and their opponent, but also about the injured players and the 'quiet' protest staged by the supporters.
Lucien Favre on the match:
"We played against a very compact and a very well-organised team. It was very difficult for us to find the gaps. Fortunately, we stayed patient. We waited for the right moment before we accelerated going forwards either with our passing play or individually on the ball. We did that pretty well. I think we were worth our win. Freiburg is a strong opponent. You can't forget that they got a point away at Munich and that they won 3-1 against Gladbach."
... on the differences between today and the midweek match against Brugge:
"We played with greater patience and with more pace at the right moments. It isn't easy to destabilise Freiburg. We played combinations in the 18-yard box. They were necessary."
... on Paco Alcácer's ninth goal from the bench:
"Sancho's build-up play beforehand was fantastic and Piszczek's pass was good – it was a team goal."
... on Dan-Axel Zagadou's being substituted:
"I don't have any news for you yet. I hope it isn't bad, otherwise we've got a huge problem."
... on the 'silent' protest during the first half:
"It's regrettable for us because the fans really make a contribution when they're there, when they're loud. We need that. I understand the people who are protesting, both here and everywhere. I would completely ban all matches on Mondays." (br)
