"Giving the game away like that after leading 2-0 hurts. The first 30 or 35 minutes were the best we've played in a long time. We were in control, but then we lost the ball twice where we shouldn't lose it and didn't react properly. Then it's 2-2 in no time. Their winner comes from a similar situation. We invited the opponent three times and they took their chances. Then you're behind and it doesn't get easier when a team is able to just concentrate on defending. In the second half, we had a bit of bad luck here and there. They were individual mistakes, but you can still position yourself better beforehand so that these ball losses are not so devastating. We are conceding too many goals against at the moment."
Marco Rose (Borussia Mönchengladbach head coach):
"I'm proud but we can put it into perspective. We have to keep at it now. We've had a lot of games where the luck of the draw has been amiss. Today we worked hard for our luck. All in all, it was a deserved victory. The boys did very well. We were 2-0 behind, without Bayern beating us into submission. The goals were unfortunate, yet all of a sudden it's 2-0 to them. Until then, we weren't in the game enough, weren't brave enough. The goal back was important for us, so that we could develop the feeling that something might be possible. That gave us strength. And then football games go the way they go."
Jonas Hofmann (Borussia Mönchengladbach):
"We're over the moon. It was a tough fight. After going 2-0 down, I'm sure many didn't expect us to be able to turn it around. We scored the first two goals exactly as we had imagined. Bayern defended with a very high line, so we had to get behind the back four. We did that very well. We had a hard time at the start, but we got into the game more and more. It was great that we took the lead right after the break. In the end, it was a tough battle defending that all. That's part of it, especially against Bayern."
