After the defeat in Lisbon, team captain Marco Reus spoke to DAZN about the game and the team's performance.
Marco Reus: "We played better than Sporting when we were a man down. They didn't do anything in the game but won 3-1. We maybe didn't play our best game, but we had it under control until we conceded. Collectively, we didn't bring it on the pitch, and in the end, goals were conceded because of individual mistakes. The communication just wasn't right. Sporting were totally unsettled until then, but we completely brought them into the game. It's a crap evening. We're going home empty-handed, and that hurts. You can't lose three games in a row in the Champions League. Then you don't deserve to progress."
