Florian Kohfeldt: "During the first half, we played probably the best we have all season when we had possession. We combined to build out from the back, despite the risk that we might misplay a pass. We had several chances where we could have been quicker and got more bodies in the area. When we were able to do so, Hoffenheim were right there. The goal was wonderfully played out. During the second half, when Kevin Möhwald came on, that's where we were unable to shake them off as well as we had been. We still had one or two good chances during which we established our presence up front, but taken as a whole, I'm satisfied with the point. Especially knowing who we were up against. We did a good job with the basics, and improved in terms of our football, without it being an exceptional game."
Niklas Moisander: “It’s a good result for us and we played very well in the first half. But after we took the lead, we played too passively and let them play around us. But overall I think we can be satisfied.”
Leonardo Bittencourt: “Hoffenheim put us under a lot of pressure and often built up moves from deep, which meant that we did a lot of running. Of course, we would have preferred to come away with all three points but we played well on the whole and it shows we’ve made good progress. We’re satisfied with the point and we intend to go into the Frankfurt game with a lot of positivity.”
Maximilian Eggestein: "I thought that we were on top in the first half, but Hoffenheim were the better team in the second. So the result is a fair reflection of the game.”
Joshua Sargent: "It was another intense game. It's difficult to create chances against Hoffenheim. Of course, we can do better at creating more chances for ourselves, but we keep improving."
