The Eagles' disappointment was all too evident come the final whistle, while ten-man Bremen were understandably rather more satisfied. bundesliga.com gathered the thoughts of some of the game's key players...
Alexander Meier: I should have scored today. We were held, but we still played quite well. Of course it's frustrating that my header didn't go in late on. We would've liked to have won and we had a good chance to do so against ten men.
Marco Russ: Bremen were looking to beat us on the break. Of course we should've won against ten men, but we just lacked a bit of concentration. Bremen defended well - they are a Bundesliga side after all - but we would've won if we'd played the ball around better. At least we haven't lost against a direct rival, so that's good, but we really should be winning games like this.
Raphael Wolf: Of course it was a blow to lose Felix [Kroos] so early on and we had to change things around then. Considering we had a man less, we did pretty well.
Cedric Makiadi: It was a tough game, especially after losing Felix Kroos, but we defended well. We had to chase the game a lot but we resisted well and when you remain as cool as this in the relegation battle, then you're going to get out of there.
Sebastian Prödl: Considering the red card, this is a point gained for us. With 11 men, we could have got more out of the game and we would have been able to play differently.
