The protagonists’ first reaction after RB Leipzig’s 1-1 (0-1) draw against SC Freiberg:
Dominico Tedesco (Coach RB Leipzig): “We take the point, but it’s a joke that we are trailing 1-0 after the first half. It felt like we had 90 per cent of the ball. In the second half we performed better, played more on the sidelines, switched, and then opportunities came in. We knew what Freiburg could do in the counterattack, we let nothing happen and they did not approach us.
Christian Streich (Coach SC Freiberg): “We gave everything that was left in our body. We did a great job tactically and played very cleverly. I’m very happy because the team has never played together tactically before. We don’t usually play 3-5-2. We do not allow much of the quality that Leipzig has. 1-1 deserved, but it would have worked if we had won here. Maybe in my life I will never do it again. “
Kulachi: “Of course, we wanted to break up.”
Angelino (goal scorer RB Leipzig): “We worked very hard to score a goal and deserved the point by pressing the whole game. The goal we admitted was a stupid mistake, but we worked towards a draw until the end. It was very good for us to get a point today. We had to wait a long time in the whole game today to get a clear chance. “
Peter Gulasi (Captain RP Leipzig): “We had a lot of possessions and restrictions, and Freiberg didn’t have much of a chance. In the end we considered how the game went. But of course we wanted to leave. Freiburg is a direct contender for Champions League seats.
Lucas Closterman (RP Leipzig Defender): “Freiburgers were deep after the lead and ran a lot. It was very difficult for us, we could not create clear chances. We finally got a point anyway. It should stick to the end. Accuracy, idea and flash of inspiration in the last three may be lacking in the end. But of course we won. We wanted to get, so no one here is really happy. We could not go away today, but you saw today that everything had to go right to get three points. “
Former RB Leipzig player Ermedin Demirovic: “We see ourselves as a great team.”
Christian Thug (SC Freiberg Full-Back): “It was bitter to score a goal in the 90th place after our fight today. We had to swallow it, but after 120 minutes on Wednesday we still played a great game. It is a shame that three points did not reward us.Anything is possible this year, there is a good chance of achieving great things.The goal should be to fight for a place in Europe until the end.
Ermatin Demirovic (forward and goal scorer SC Freiberg): “Although the 1-1 draw shortly before the final was bitter at first, this point was very valuable. We fought well. We see ourselves as a great team. The coach will be angry at me when he hears that. .
