05 quotes after the draw against Hertha


Ádám Szalai had the lead at his feet before the break.

The draw against Hertha BSC on Monday evening meant the eighth unbeaten Bundesliga match in a row for the Zerofivers. After the game, the Mainz players were satisfied with the point and the quick comeback goal, but they were also self-critical because more could have been possible.

Phillipp Mwene: "We'll take the point, even though we had of course planned to get the win today. We started well and could have taken the lead early on. We were a little bit asleep when we conceded the goal, which shouldn't happen to us. After that, we responded well. I was really happy about my goal, it was a reward for the hard work of the last few weeks. Now we have three more games in which we want to secure our place in the league as early as possible.

Alexander Hack: "The first half was good for us, we clearly dominated, we were confident. One or two more goals would have been good. In the end, the draw is satisfactory, even if we wanted to win the game. We can go into the last games with a broad chest."

Overall, it is positive that we came back after going down 1-0

Ádám Szalai: "Djanga and I had three great chances in the first half. It's annoying that we didn't make more of them. Overall, it's positive that we came back after going down 1-0. The second half was not without mistakes. The point is important, but we now have three final games ahead of us. It goes on until we are mathematically sure of staying in the league."
