Borussia Dortmund were happy "that we kept a clean sheet" – for the second time since the winter break – and that Paco Alcácer continued his habit of scoring (late) goals. Here are some more reactions to the match against VfL Wolfsburg.
Lucien Favre: "Both teams defended well and had good spells during the match. At the beginning Wolfsburg looked livelier and then we improved after 20 minutes. We played a higher line and had more possession than Wolfsburg as well as a few chances. We applied pressure, but Wolfsburg posed a threat themselves with long balls and counter-attacks, especially in the second half. We didn't control the game at the beginning of the second period. That subsequently improved. In the last 15 minutes we absolutely wanted to score a goal and so were took a bit more of a risk."
Manuel Akanji: "I'm happy that we kept a clean sheet. That hasn't been so easy in recent weeks. We have conceded slightly too many goals in this period; but today it was all good. The win gives us more self-confidence and hopefully we'll be able to win next Saturday too."
Thomas Delaney: "Our attitude was good; it was a difficult game against a good opponent. We always keep battling, always believe in ourselves. It's important to make few mistakes, we were okay in that respect today – and then in the end Paco was the difference. The matches are all very intense. We need a lot of power and energy, especially against strong opponents like Wolfsburg."
Roman Bürki: "I'm really happy for Paco today. He's earned it to score again. Today he found the net twice, two very important goals. That's a great feeling, the weekend couldn't have gone better. We performed well defensively today, we had two injuries during the match and had to make changes. But Rapha is our all-rounder, he can play everywhere and he did that well. But with Dan-Axel, Manu and Marius things worked very well today too."
