Terzic explains decision to take off Kobel and Hummels at half-time

Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic has calmed injury fears concerning Gregor Kobel and Mats Hummels after the duo were subbed off at half-time in Copenhagen tonight.
Both Gregor Kobel and Mats Hummels came off at the break of Borussia Dortmund's 1-1 draw with FC Copenhagen in Parken tonight.

In a post-match interview, Dortmund coach Edin Terzic played down the injuries, saying:

"Both Gregor and Mats had minor problems at half-time. There is nothing to worry about, but we didn't want to take any risks at all tonight."

Assessing the performance of his team, the BVB coach described the draw as "a fair result".

"Both sides created many chances to score. It took a while for us to get into the game. We tried to play with a lot of ball contact, but our pressing wasn't aggressive enough, so the opponent kept getting back into the game," Terzic noted.

"I think we showed a lot more drive and pace in the second half and created three or four really good chance, but we also allowed too much at the other end. Considering the chances at both ends, the point is okay."

Borussia Dortmund were already certain to finish second in Group G before tonight's game.
