In the aftermath of the 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre stated that a draw would have been a fair result. Mats Hummels and Emre Can bemoaned the lack of effectiveness in front of goal.
Lucien Favre: "We made a very good start in the opening 30 minutes but we sat too deep after that. The second half was good too. We had opportunities. But the penultimate or final ball was missing. We at least deserved to draw. We played better than we did against Wolfsburg and Schalke."
Mats Hummels: "We were too wasteful around the penalty area in the first half; we had two or three opportunities to shoot. It was that all-important final ball. It was missing in certain moments, otherwise we would have had chances. When we did have the chances, then our finishing wasn't good enough. It was not a poor performance. We fell just a little short. Every team apart from Bayern is now out of the title race. Now it is entirely up to Bayern to decide whether they win it or not. We're seven points behind and can't do anything other than win our matches, while at the same time also hoping that they make three slip-ups in the remaining six matches."
Emre Can: "We didn't put in a bad performance. It was a very open match. We were not effective enough in the final quarter. The final balls were not clean enough. We had several opportunities; we could've scored a goal. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. On another day we might've scored one or two goals."
