Good showing, no points
"We played the game we wanted to up until the opponents' box. We had some good stretches and had faith. But unfortunately we were not effective enough in front of their goal," said Zlatko Junuzovic.
Further reaction to the opening match of the 50th Bundesliga season:
Eljero Elia: "We played a super game, fought well and had some super passing. Unfortunately we were missing the luck today."
Aleksandar Ignjovski: "We met a very good opponent today but still had a lot of good chances. Unfortunately we could not use them. The 1-1 came in the right moment. We should have taken home one point today."
Kevin De Bruyne: "I was somewhat surprised when I found out that I would play in attack. I had never played this position before and it was unusual for me to have two 1.90m guys as markers. Altogether we didn't play bad. Dortmund had problems with us. We are a very young team but we can play well. And we have to want the goal more."
Sokratis: "I knew that we would play better than last week. It was a very, very good team performance. We have a lot of quality this season. We can build upon this match, but have to continue to work hard. Then we can accomplish quite a lot."
Marko Arnautovic: "We had a very good match - with the exception of two mistakes and Dortmund took advantage of them. We demanded quite a bit from the opponents. We can take that into our next games."
Jürgen Klopp: "We went into game with a lot of excitement. You could see after a few minutes why because that was a great game in which Bremen made our life difficult. I agree with Thomas Schaaf when he says that Bremen deserved a point here. That was certainly a lucky victory."
