Mönchengladbach - A last-minute strike from Juan Arango earned Borussia Mönchengladbach a point towards Europe and denied VfB Stuttgart two against relegation on Matchday 30.
bundesliga.com checked out the post-match vibe in both camps after Saturday's dramatic encounter at the Borussia Park.
Patrick Herrmann: Even though it was a tough game and we were behind I never stopped believing we’d score, particularly with the pressure we were generating in the second half. Sometimes it was all too crowded in the Stuttgart box and there were a few situations where we could have taken a different approach – like Havard [Nordtveit]’s long-range shot or the cross that Juan [Arango] put away for the equaliser. I think 1-1 was fair enough in the end.
Roel Brouwers: Going by the run of the game, we have to be satisfied with the result. Stuttgart sat very deep and they were dangerous on the break. We were struggling to find a way through and gave the ball away too often in the middle of the park. Going behind obviously didn’t make things any easier either, so I’m just glad we managed to nab the equaliser. I could see Juan’s header was going in, I just followed through on it to be on the safe side.
Daniel Didavi: I was a bit lucky with our goal, with the ball dropping right at my feet. It wasn’t difficult to score from there. All-in-all we had the better chances, so you can really feel the disappointment now. It’s a real pity we didn’t win, but in our position every point counts.
Sven Ulreich: Unfortunately we weren’t able to tie up the win, we would have been good value for it. It’s annoying to have only finished up with a draw, but the point could be important for us all the same. We need to keep working away and get stuck in again in our next game at home to Schalke.
