We were playing against an opponent who has quality and who has nothing to lose, and we played with brakes from the start. We struggled, but the important thing was to be in the quarter-finals. The mental aspect was important. Leipzig tried everything, they are a good team. We must calmly assess what happened. At this stage of the season we are seven points ahead in the league and we are in the quarter-finals. You have to be self-critical, but not too much.”
