Dortmund - Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski felt Eintracht Frankfurt put up a good battle at Signal Iduna Park on Matchday 21, despite BVB's convincing 4-0 victory over the Eagles.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes Dortmund can go into this week's UEFA Champions League encounter with FC Zenit with a lot of confidence, while Frankfurt's Sebastian Jung was left bitterly disappointed after his error gave the hosts an early lead on Saturday. bundesliga.com rounds up the players' post-match thoughts...
I’m very happy to have finally scored against Frankfurt at the fifth attempt. The matches against Eintracht have always been very difficult, and it was another tough match today, even though 4-0 is a very clear-cut result. We have to keep playing like we did today, then we’re more than capable of returning to second in the league.
We’ve grown a lot closer as a team. Even the continuous injury troubles have contributed to our recent run of form. We had to get through a very difficult patch in December, with a few very disappointing defeats. The self-belief that we’ve gained through our recent victories means we can approach our upcoming games in a relaxed manner.
We started the game very badly and went behind because of my mistake. It was completely my fault, but I'll learn from it. Dortmund then made it 2-0 from a corner and played incredibly well after that - we simply weren't able to get back into the game. We couldn't keep the ball well enough.
