bundesliga.com rounds up the players' post-match thoughts from the Rheinenergiestadion...

Borussia Mönchengladbach


Christoph Kramer: When you create two good opportunities and one absolutely clear-cut chance in a game like that, but don't score them, then it's always going to end goalless. We didn't have a lot of space as Köln were happy with a 0-0 draw and defended well. The only thing we didn't really do well today was play with enough pace in the final third. But we performed well and looked good. I think a point is ok after a game like that.

Granit Xhaka: We had more possession and I tihnk we were the better team, but we didn't win. Maybe we should have taken more shots against such a deep-lying team, you can't walk it into the goal against them. We didn't lose though and that's always important in a derby like this, in fact we're unbeaten in all three competitions so far this season and that's a very positive thing. On Wednesday we go up against Hamburg and they played very well against Bayern yesterday. We'll need to be focused but we're determined to win.

1. FC Köln


Kevin Vogt: Massive compliments have to go to our coaching team. It's no coincidence we haven't conceded a goal yet. We've been working hard in training and we're very compact in games. That's the way we'll keep playing.
