Coach Edin Terzic and team captain Emre Can spoke of a first half that contained many mistakes ("We could've been finished off then"), highlighted the reaction and looked ahead with optimism to the return fixture in Dortmund on Tuesday.

Edin Terzic (to DAZN): "It remains open. We envisaged a very different start to the game. We have a lot of lads with us who are playing in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time. The first 30 minutes were not good enough. We gave them the opportunity to get in front of goal very easily twice. If you make that many mistakes, then it should be over. But afterwards we showed what we're capable of. What was important was that we showed a reaction. We won the second period. We were very good in many areas then. Now it's a case of taking the positives."

Emre Can (to DAZN): "It's still all open. It's not easy to play football here because they defend very well. The goal was very important. We could've been finished off in the first period, they devoured us in the challenges. But we showed spirit, fought back and could've even levelled at 2-2 at the last moment. Many players were playing in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time. So it's understandable some of them were nervous. We spoke about it in the half-time break and showed a different side of ourselves in the second period. If we show it next week too, we have a lot of hope. Our chances are not bad. It won't be easy but we believe in ourselves. We can do it!" (br)
