Thomas Tuchel (Borussia Dortmund coach): "I am not at all satisfied. We stopped playing to our level ten days ago. We have lost our intensity and our attitude. I cannot accept this. We were keen when we were five points behind [league leaders FC Bayern München]. We must rediscover our form and our attitude before Berlin."

Sven Bender (Borussia Dortmund midfielder): "We did not play well, myself included. I was at fault for the first goal. Throughout the game, although we had a lot of possession, we were repeatedly counter-attacked and we could not show what we wanted to. We just need to pull together now, to be very focused to prepare ourselves for the final. We need to be at full-throttle and give it everything."
