Thomas Tuchel (Dortmund coach): "I am very happy with the effort we put in once again. The team ran hard and threw everything at it. It is a great feeling to be able to rely on that. We created many chances and deserved to win. The team showed early on that they wanted to win here. Mats Hummels can be confident that he is part of the team, no matter what happens."

Marco Reus (Dortmund forward): "We started very well and the two early goals played into our hands.  We barely let Wolfsburg get into the match and we had a good game-plan. Auba and Micki had already planned their dance and it looked very, very good."

Marcel Schmelzer (Dortmund left-back): "We really all wanted to dance. Not all of us have the talent for it.

Dieter Hecking (Wolfsburg coach): "Congratulations to Dortmund, they deserved to win the game. The two early goals were setbacks and we could not find an answer. If Daniel Caligiuri had scored to make it 2-1 the team might have been more confident. After the third goal we left too many spaces. We are in a difficult situation. We have to try and get positive results in our two remaining games."

Andre Schürrle (Wolfsburg forward): "We were completely missing for the first 15 minutes, then we came into the game, but in the second half we had no chance. Dortmund have simply been a class above us this season and we need to admit that to ourselves.
