What managers say

Luis Enrique: "I think we deserved to win this game [against Real Madrid], that's why there's big disappointment. We were able to find our players much more [in the second half], we created chances. We found each other between the lines and we had two clear openings with Neymar and Leo [Messi]. We had it in our hands, but we couldn't kill it off. I think we deserved it, but that's the way it is and you have to accept how things go."

Andre Schubert: "If we played to our limit, we could have got something against Dortmund. This time, unfortunately, we were not able to do so."
