bundesliga.com rounds up the protagonists' key quotes from the Saturday crunch game...

FC Schalke 04


Leon Goretzka: Leno came out of goal and chipping the ball seemed the best solution. It's fair to say we were a bit lucky today, but we gained the reward for our hard work on the pitch. I'm not back to full fitness yet after having to cope with of injury troubles in the first half of the season, but I've never lost confidence.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar: We all worked really hard in this game and defended well. Our match plan was to give Leverkusen possession, and beat them on the break, which worked out very well. We managed to carve out several chances and converted two of them. We've been doing well recently. We shouldn't look too far ahead though and make sure we remain in fourth.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen


Philipp Wollscheid: The defeat is very hard to take because we were in control of the game and had opportunities to take all three points, but we've ended up empty-handed. Our good performance is of no use to us now.
