Schwarz: We would like to thank the fans

The head coach gave his view on the game

Mainz 05 1-5 Bayer 04 Leverkusen

Sandro Schwarz: “Congratulations to Peter and Leverkusen on their deserved victory. Before the game, we decided on a bold and attacking approach. We started the game well and could have taken the lead from our hard pressing. However, we made some mistakes which they capitalised on. They also used their pace well, but the game was open. When Aaron hit the bar, if that had gone in, it could have been different. After the break, Leverkusen played maturely and controlled the game and so we found it hard to get into the game. We would like to thank the fans who supported this young team throughout the whole game.”

Peter Bosz: “I am very satisfied. We played very well against a very good team. The first half was very open and they could have scored one or two more goals. I was not completely assured at half-time because playing in a stadium with a crowd like it is never easy. However, after the break we controlled the game and showed we have good players in this squad. We were rewarded for our courage. It’s our third win in a row since the winter break and we can go home happy.”
