Domenico Tedesco

First of all, I’d like to pay a huge compliment to BFC for their performance. They made life very difficult for us today. We started the game well and had a few chances in the opening 15 minutes or so. The longer it stayed at 0-0, the harder it became for us.Ralf Fährmannkept things at 0-0 going into the break.

In the second half we made it count. The Berlin keeper had a good day, he made several big saves in the second half. In the end, it was certainly no walk in the park for us, but we knew that would be the case before. The win was fully deserved, it was a tough day at the office.

Rene Rydlewicz:

Congratulations to FC Schalke 04. The bottom line is that our opponent’s win was deserved. At the start we were a little nervous, but we got better as the game went on. We had one or two chances. If one of them had gone in, we might have gotten something from the game. I’m definitely happy with my boys’ performance.
