Ariel Jacobs was forthcoming with praise for his players as they overcame a rough patch domestically and record a surprise 2-1 win over Bordeaux. "Although I would rather have won 1-0, I cannot complain about 2-1."

Post-match, Jacobs commended his side's mental strength, "I have to congratulate my team for the mental power they showed after conceding the penalty. With this win we have a chance in the away game, and a lot of people thought we wouldn't even stand a chance at home against Bordeaux. We proved them wrong."

Goalkeeper Zitka was even more optimistic ahead of the second leg next week, "This win is quite a relief and gives us a fantastic feeling. If we are well organised defensively, we can do something in the return leg. They have to win so if we can score it will be hard for them. So we have to try to score in France. Attack is still the best defence."
