“Of course I'm disappointed. There were parallels to the first game. We were able to secure the balls in the first half and play forward. We didn't play the passes well and lost the balls too early. We didn't do it badly at the back, Apart from the penalty, which was very controversial for me, Sparta had few moves forward, “continued Kühbauer.

In the first half we got a penalty against us, I did We haven't seen any pictures yet, but it is very bitter to be trailing 1-0 down. The stadium was raging, the momentum was on Sparta's side. In the end we had a chance, we could have scored that one goal, all in all but it was very disappointing. “
