The reaction to the game at Rosengård

Club president Herbert Hainer: "Congratulations to our women's team on reaching the Champions League quarter-finals ahead of schedule. This is a terrific success and underscores our overall development. FC Bayern has also been consistently setting the tone on the international stage in women's football for years, and we are looking forward to the challenges in the New Year. In general, German women's football can look back on an extremely successful year." 

Alexander Straus: "It's a deserved win. The girls did a good job. I think we played below our potential in the first half, but I'm very pleased with the second half. I wasn't happy after the first 45 minutes, but neither were the girls and that mentality pleases me. After the second goal we were a lot calmer in our play and had complete control of the game. I'm really proud of what the girls have shown in the whole first half of the season so far."

Georgia Stanway: "I'm very happy. We have qualification for the quarter-finals in our own hands - that's exactly where we wanted to be before the start of the season. We produced another strong performance today and deservedly won. Rosengård didn't make it easy for us, but we knew how important the game is for us and we were ruthless in converting our chances in the closing stages."

Sarah Zadrazil: "It feels marvellous. It was a hard game for us. Rosengård made it difficult for us and we've played a lot of matches in recent weeks. I'm just happy with the result and the big step towards the quarter-finals. I'm really proud of the whole team. Now our focus is on the last group match against Benfica."

Klara Bühl: "We're glad about the three points and the away win. Now we want to take this momentum into the last home match of the season. We needed a bit of time to find our way into the game. The second half was then much better. Of course, we still need to work on our chance conversion but overall we're very pleased."
