Admir Mehmedi: Our last victory in Frankfurt was very important for our self-confidence. We're happy to have to the three points today as well, but we mustn't rest on our laurels.

Karim Guede: It was a very intense game and we were very disciplined. We were able to get the three points, but we have to focus on our next game in Hamburg. We have to stay focused and keep working hard.

SV Werder Bremen

Aaron Hunt: There are many reasons why we lost the game today. We played poorly, didn't press them enough - there was always something missing. We deserved to lose and it's a shame we weren't able to pick up where we left off against Stuttgart.
