Bayer 04 Leverkusen


Heung Min Son: We put everything into the game and deserved the win. Roberto [Hilbert] did really well to pick me out for the goal. It was important to win tonight after the run we’ve been on. The conditions were difficult, but Augsburg had to play on the same pitch as us.

Stefan Reinartz: We had to fight hard today, but we should have put the game to bed before we did. We were the better team in the second half though and deserved the three points.

Roberto Hilbert: It was a solid team performance today. I was a bit lucky to get in the side [Gonzalo Castro picked up an injury in the warm-up], but I thought I did very well in the circumstances. We weren’t really affected by the weather, as you can tell by the scoreline.

FC Augsburg


Marwin Hitz: We’re disappointed to have lost after the run we’ve been on, but Leverkusen are a strong team who are in the Champions League, so we can’t be too harsh on ourselves.

Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker: We didn’t really take our chances, but Leverkusen had opportunities right until the end. We gave everything, but didn’t quite manage to snatch a draw.
