Van der Vaart: 'We're really developing'

bundesliga.com rounded up the key post-match opinions at the MAGE Solar stadium...

Rafael van der Vaart: I do feel bad for Oliver Baumann, but I'm obviously delighted for us, and for the fans as well, who have travelled hundreds of miles to be here and support us. They were outstanding. We're glad they've got a reason to celebrate. It was a deserved, and important victory, where we were good defensively. We're really developing.

Rene Adler: The result was better than the game, even though we were excellent defensively. We're definitely developing with each game, we're improving and it's important to keep that up over the next few weeks. With regards to Baumann, as a keeper you have games like this. I know it from experience. He needn't worry.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga: Three goals, three points - football is like that sometimes. We controlled the game and concentrated well throughout. My goal just after half-time was probably the turning point. Heading home to Hamburg with three points is great. Tomorrow, we turn our attention to next week.

Oliver Baumann: We started well. For the first mistake, I misjudged the flight of the ball, for the second I tried to intercept it, and the third I should have done much better. I'll come back stronger and there's no reason to doubt my abilities.

Julian Schuster: Oliver has won us plenty of points down the years so of course we'll still support him. It's unfortunate this happened but it doesn't make us doubt him. We just need to put it behind us as quickly as possible and move on.
