Paderborn - Zlatko Junuzovic said SV Werder Bremen's players shouldn't get carried away despite remaining in contention for a place in next season's UEFA Europa League after Matchday 30's 2-2 draw away to SC Paderborn, who were already looking ahead to next week's relegation six-pointer at SC Freiburg.

Mario Vrancic: “We switched for their goals. We’d been practising the free-kick situation [ahead of Vrancic's goal] but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to get a win. The point will help us in the relegation battle, though. It was a huge game today which we can build on. Hopefully we’ll have a better conversion rate against Freiburg next week and get a result there."
Michael Heinloth: "I think I was unlucky getting a second yellow. I'm sure we can compensate away to Freiburg though. We have a great chance of getting something from that one."

Zlatko Junuzovic: “It was an exciting and entertaining match. We started well, enjoyed lots of possession and a couple of chances, but we didn't take them. Thankfully we still managed a draw. We were annoyed with ourselves at letting two goals in, but we knew they’d get nervous if we created a few chances [even at 2-0 down]. Everyone talks of us reaching the Europa League, but we should stay realistic even though we’re in with a chance. The fans can dream, but we’ve got to be realistic and take it step by step.”
Koen Casteels: "We weren't quite at 100 per cent in the first half. We weren't happy at conceding twice of course, but fought back and made it 2-2. We were particularly vulnerable at set-pieces today and should have marked them better - they had four or five good headers inside the box. I can't really explain why that was. We have to give it our all in the final matches and see what we can achieve."
