Mats Hummels praised the defensive performance of the entire team after the 4-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt. Lukas Piszczek was delighted with the reaction shown after two consecutive defeats. The match reaction.
Mats Hummels: "It is very important that we managed to keep a clean sheet. Except for two chances, we hardly allowed them anything at all at the back because we were focused in every position. It wasn't a clean sheet for the defence, but for the entire team. With our offensive quality, we don't have to take a lot of risks to create chances. The guys up front are so dangerous that we get chances to score in every game except in Munich. There were a lot of good things today. If we take that with us, we will have a very good chance against Paris."
Lukasz Piszczek: "That was the reaction the team wanted to show. After two defeats we had to improve. We played our game and we didn't allow them many chances. We managed to score early in the second half which calmed our game. We have left those defeats behind us now. Every game is important for us. We had to deliver, and that's what we did today. Winning 4-0 is a good sign. A different calibre of opponent will come on Tuesday, but we will be ready."
