Speaking to DAZN after Borussia Dortmund’s 2-0 defeat against Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin, Edin Terzic expressed his disappointment, particularly the manner of how BVB conceded Union’s second goal, stating that their performance “was too little.”
“We knew what awaited us. And we knew how difficult it is here when you go behind,” said Terzic. “When you look at how the goals happened: the first goal is super unlucky; we’re human, such things happen. The second goal we conceded: where we lost the ball and how we lost the ball – it is exactly those zones where we didn’t want it.
“We gave it another try in the second half, by making changes and substitutions. It was not enough. It’s incredibly frustrating and disappointing. We had a lot of possession, but mostly only around the halfway line. We failed to get shots away cleanly and to show determination to score goals. It was too little.”
Gregor Kobel slipped when receiving a back pass from Raphael Guerreiro, allowing Janik Haberer to score into an empty net. Karim Adeyemi then lost possession in midfield, allowing Union to drive forward before Haberer scored his second of the afternoon from 20-yards.
10 games in to the Bundesliga season, it leaves BVB in eighth, seven points off Union.
