Edin Terzic described the performance in the second 45 minutes against Freiburg as "almost perfect". At the press conference, he also spoke about Sébastien Haller and about Karim Adeyemi, who will miss the next two matches.

Edin Terzic on the first 45 minutes:
From the beginning, we took control of the match, were very dominant and managed not to give away a corner throughout the entire game – knowing that it's one of Freiburg's weapons. The game was changed somewhat by the red card. There was a period between the 30th and 45th minutes we didn't like at all, our play was too passive at that point. We were not consistent enough for the equaliser at 1-1, even though we had two opportunities to clear the ball.

…on the second period:
We produced a really good performance in the second half. It was almost perfect because we were really good in terms of positional play, passing and speeding the game up. The counter-pressing worked well. We hardly allowed the opposition to breathe when we lost the ball. We liked the fact that we know what we're capable of. We need to continue in exactly that vein in our next matches.

…on Karim Adeyemi's performance:
He had many good moments and consistently kept the opponent busy. There were several fouls committed down that side because he was consistently able to inject his pace into the game. We set out to keep drawing on his strengths. He has improved his link-up play; he has become more confident receiving the ball and playing it on with one touch. It is annoying he is suspended for the next two games: he will miss out in Bochum because of his red card from the cup game in Hanover; today he picked up his fifth yellow card and therefore won't be able to hot-foot it in Bremen next week.

…on Sébastien Haller's goal:
We had hoped that it would come back in July or August. It makes us even happier that it happened today of all days, that it was an important goal and that it happened in front of the Yellow Wall. It means a great deal to him, it means a great deal to us. We hope that it is the first of many goals.
