As Hans-Joachim Watzke and Lucien Favre embraced, the players celebrated an historic victory in the background: it was the first time BVB have won a UEFA Champions League match in which they trailed 2-0. Below are the reactions from the officials.
Hans-Joachim Watzke: "At the moment when we levelled the score at 2-2, I had the feeling we would win the match. The team had already created a relatively large number of chances in the first period and produced a good performance all in all. The second half was outstanding. It was the kind of football evening that people love. It will give us momentum for Saturday. We're ready for the Clasico. And now we have put ourselves back into a good position in the Champions League. But we need to put it into proper prospective. Our wins this week have been narrow and hard-fought. Lucien Favre is very energetic at the moment. He's instructing a lot. I like that."
Sebastian Kehl: "We turned it around in the second period because we knew: we have to win this game. You could sense this mentality. When we pulled it back to 2-1 and the spectators got into it, we were able to go up another gear while Inter looked flat. If we play like that, then we have a good chance in Munich too – and that's how we'll need to play: with lots of intensity, courage and a readiness to take risks. All of that was in our performance today. The lads played a wonderful game. That's how we need to perform on Saturday too."
