FC Augsburg were not able to get the victory they were seeking on matchday 25 of the Bundesliga. Manuel Baum’s team battled their way back into the game after going 1-0 down but it ended all square as neither side could get that second goal. Here is all the post-match reaction.
Moritz Leitner: “We definitely had the better chances and didn’t allow Freiburg many opportunities. We definitely would have deserved the victory had we got it but we couldn’t get that second goal. The fans were right behind us today. Now we have a chance to carry on working hard during the international break.”
Konstantinos Stafylidis: “We battled right from the start but we’ll have to take a point. I’m really pleased to have got my goal but really it doesn’t matter who scores. Now we need to look forward and pick up a few more points for us to have nothing to do with relegation.”
Martin Hinteregger: “We really got stuck in and had several good chances but it wasn’t meant to be in the end. On the whole a draw is a decent result even though a victory would have been slightly more deserved.”
Marwin Hitz: “We needed that extra bit of luck to win this game. We were the better team even if that wasn’t by miles, so I think that 1-1 is a decent result and we can be satisfied with a point. We will not panic but we’ll manage to secure our Bundesliga together if we just focus on ourselves and get points.”
Ja-Cheol Koo: “We never gave up but unfortunately we could only get a point. We had more goalscoring opportunities but we couldn’t take them.”
Manuel Baum: “We showed a reaction to the poor performance in Schalke. We barely gave Freiburg any chances but we went behind even when we were really putting them under pressure. But we showed again that we can bounce back and got the equaliser pretty quickly. In the end we’ll have to live with a point although three would have been deserved.”
Christian Streich: “Augsburg were better before the break. We didn’t really get into the game and weren’t able to stamp our authority. It wasn’t until the second half that we got a bit more room and could play football a bit more but we didn’t get behind Augsburg’s back line. We were unlikely to ever get more than a point today and we also didn’t deserve more.”
