"You won't get far in the Bundesliga like that," Dahmen told the Sky microphones afterwards when reflecting upon a disastrous first-half that saw his team concede three goals against Leipzig in under 30 minutes, "We conceded far too many easy goals. We didn't play well. Everyone saw that."
Demirovic - a former RB youth player - went ahead and used the word "disaster" to describe the first half. The 25-year-old did say that he felt his crew played better in the second half and that he retained some hope of getting a win next week against Mainz.
"I don't really know what happened," Demirovic told his interviewer, "I have to watch it again. We defended badly as a team and didn't win the decisive duels. Though [Leipzig] took it down a notch in the second half, we showed how we're capable of playing. Next week we get an opponent on par with us."
