Florian Kohfeldt: “We definitely had one or two shaky moments at the back that were dangerous, but we were dangerous at the other end of the pitch throughout the game. We knew before the game of course that Frankfurt like to make use of a flexible structure and that we wouldn’t be able to defend against that one-on-one. It’s always been part of realistically assessing our opponents to look at what will and won’t work. That’s why we allowed Frankfurt to have a bit more of the ball than we usually would today. We wanted to avoid Frankfurt's three- and four-man set-up, so as not to give them the opportunity to draw us out of position and play around that. The boys did this in a very disciplined manner - especially in the first half. The only thing missing was that cutting edge when we had the ball. Frankfurt were the better team with the ball, but we wanted that and we didn’t panic. There was no question that they were going to score in the second half, but I’d say that we had our fair share of chances too. All in all, the game played out like we imagined it would and I'm satisfied with the team's performance and how they implemented the gameplan."
Christian Groß: “We knew from the outset that it would be a tough challenge on the road - Frankfurt are a good side. So we had to weather the storm on a few occasions and I thought we did that well. We also had good phases which we could have made a more of maybe, but in the end I think we can be satisfied with the point."
Josh Sargent: "It’s always difficult to play here. Frankfurt did a lot of attacking so we had to do a lot of defensive work, but we fought to the final whistle and earned the point. In the first half I lost the ball a couple of times but in the second half it worked out better."
Niklas Moisander: "It was a difficult game. We started off well but got ourselves into bit of trouble later on. I think we can be happy with the point, but we still have a few things to work on in the next few days.”
Maximilian Eggestein: "We knew that Frankfurt was going to be a tough game and I thought we did well. In the second half, Frankfurt had a lot of possession, but especially in the first half we were able to relieve the pressure and had some chances to counterattack.”
