Union Berlin coach Urs Fischer was proud of his side's performance against Real Madrid, even though the Spanish side took all three points after scoring a late 1-0 winner.

"Of course we're disappointed, but when you're one minute short of taking a point from Madrid, that's understandable. In the end, I'm proud of the team's performance," Fischer said, according to UEFA.com.

"After the break, we hardly got any respite, but luck was on our side several times. All in all, Real are probably the deserved winners."

Behrens spoke in a similar vein, saying:

"Of course I'm extremely disappointed to lose after playing so well, but I'm also proud that we could hold Madrid so well away."
