"That was the worst game during my time here at BVB", suggested Bosz of the match away at Augsburg, but he was protective of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the Gabonese missed a penalty kick.
Peter Bosz on winning away from home: "We are happy with the result. That was the worst game during my time here at BVB. It was never easy at any point today. We had plenty of space in the first half, but we didn't play good football. In the second half we didn't play anything remotely approximating football at all. Every team has a couple of games like this each season. For that reason, I am very happy that we managed to win the encounter."
... on the turbulent final minutes of the match: "We could have scored two or three more goals towards the end, but we could have also conceded a few. That's why I made the substitution and brought on Ömer Toprak. We didn't play football in the second passage of play at all, we just made sure of the result."
... on Shinji Kagawa's goal: "I thought it was real quality. He got the goal exactly as he intended to do so."
... on the missed penalty kick: "Auba is an important player for us. He has already scored eight goals, and he has always helped us. He didn't do well today. One-on-ones, headers, penalties – he normally converts in such situations. He'll have a couple such games across a season too. That was his first today."
... on Mario Götze's absence:
"He is not injured. Mario would have liked to play. I said to him that I didn't want him to. He did not play for five months, and after that we built him back up very gradually, first with 45 minutes of game time, and then a little more than 60. Today would have been his third game in a week. That is too many. It was indeed an important game today, but there are even more important games to follow in which we are going to need Mario."
