Aubameyang: 'An important win for the team'

Borussia Dortmund were relieved to get the win after being pushed all the way by fearless FC Ingostadt 04 at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK on Matchday 19.

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 FC Ingolstadt 04

Goals: 1-0 Aubameyang (77'), 2-0 Aubameyang (85')

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund striker): "It was an important win today - for us as a team and for the fans."

Gonzalo Castro (Dortmund midfielder): "Ingolstadt defend really, really well. They hardly left any gaps and were on our backs for the entire game. That's difficult for a team like ours that wants to play football. In the end, we won 2-0. We dust ourselves down and go again."

Christian Pulisic (Dortmund midfielder): "I've worked really hard for this day. It was just fantastic: to make my debut in front of these fans, it was a special moment. Obviously I was a bit nervous, but that all disappeared once I had the ball at my feet for the first time. Then I was only thinking about the game. The coach just said to enjoy it. The goals from Aubameyang were fantastic and the fans were sensational."

Thomas Tuchel (Dortmund head coach): "We got lucky at times, but on days like today you're always happy to grind out the win."

Marvin Matip (Ingolstadt captain): "The team gave everything today and really took the fight to them - enough to take something from the game. That's why we're disappointed. We matched them all the way, but I think we once again showed that we can cause the league's second best team problems."

Ralph Hasenhüttl (Ingolstadt head coach): "We played very well today, but congratulations to Dortmund on the win."
