Whilst the result was, of course, disappointing, Tuchel refused to be too critical of his players.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, the German said: “Of course, we are disappointed but we are not angry, it’s not on our boys. Today we are simply unlucky.

“We have never hidden the fact that you need luck in this game to be able to win on this level. All the time you need momentum, little details and decision making, referee and sometimes with a shot like today.

“We defended very, very well, were aggressive in counter-pressing, we didn’t allow any counter-attack chances, no half-chances, and I was absolutely happy with the work-rate intensity.

“But our decision-making was a bit too hectic, [we played] a bit too straight upfront., We wanted to force the solution too far, we had unnecessary ball losses and imprecise decision making. We created some two-against-two and two-against-three situations, that we couldn’t do as well as we should have.”
