- Coach Hasenhüttl felt team should have killed game off earlier.
Coach Ralph Hasenhüttl's side continue to take the Bundesliga by storm with breath-taking football, and have now equaled the record for a promoted side of going ten games unbeaten at the start of a season. bundesliga.com rounds up the best of the reaction following their latest dominant display.
Timo Werner (Leipzig forward) "Emil Forsberg created the goals really well. Despite going 3-0 up at half-time it was the tough game we were expecting. We are simply playing fantastic football. The whole team and the frontline have gelled perfectly and we suit each other down to the ground. Emil and I linked up especially well today."
Emil Forsberg (Leipzig midfielder) "We always want to go flat out. That’s our style of play. We know that we need to give everything in every training session and in every game."

Marcel Sabitzer (Leipzig midfielder) "It is incredibly enjoyable. We deserved to win today but could have made more out of the chances we created."
Ralph Hasenhüttl (Leipzig coach) "We failed to kill the game off in the second half. We should have been four or five goals up. That is something we need to learn to not make games like these necessarily close. It was important to go into the international break with this success behind us. The main thing for us is identifying where our deficits are as we are not a top team yet."
Martin Schmidt (Mainz coach) "We knew it was going to be difficult at the start. Our plan was thrown overboard after conceding the early goal. We were only playing for pride in the second half and passed that test. The second half showed promising signs that we have a decent role to play in the Bundesliga. We are looking forward to recharging the batteries during the international break."
Giuilo Donati (Mainz defender) "The first half was catastrophic. We didn’t enter any challenges and showed no motivation. Things improved in the second half and we played well. But it was too late by then."
