Choupo-Moting: 'Didn't want another 0-0!'

  • Maxim-Choupo Moting was happy to make sure the Rhein-Main derby didn't end 0-0 by scoring the winner against Frankfurt...
  • ...while Tranquillo Barnetta bemoaned his side's bad luck in conceding another late goal
  • Alex Meier (r.) thought the Eagles had put in a good display, though, and believes more hard work will help get them out of their current rut

Mainz - 1. FSV Mainz 05's Maxim Choupo-Moting was happy to another goalless draw after scoring the winner in the 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, while the Eagles' Alex Meier believes the club simply need to keep up the hard work to arrest their poor run of form.

bundesliga.com rounds up the post-match reaction from the Coface Arena...

1. FSV Mainz 05


Maxim Choupo-Moting: It was an open game, but we knew that Frankfurt have conceded goals late on in games this season. I had the height advantage and was able to knock the ball in. It was a derby game that means so much for the fans and the city. I watched the Hannover-Braunschweig derby and didn't want this game to end 0-0 as well!

Loris Karius: I was delighted to play. I had almost nothing to do in the first half, but I had to stay focused and I was happy to make the save from [Tranquillo] Barnetta. It's fantastic that we were able to win it so late.

Eintracht Frankfurt


Alex Meier: I think we played well today, apart from the fact that we didn't score. We just need to keep working hard and if we do that, like we did today, we'll get of out this rut that we're in.

Tranquillo Barnetta: It's hard to explain why we've lost again, but I think bad luck had something to do with it. I think we competed well, worked hard and were the better team in the first half, but conceded another late goal.
