In an interview, Dortmund player Akanji talked about the team's defense and the previous 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig. He said: "Compared to a disastrous defeat, it is more unacceptable to lose points."
Akanji said in the interview: "If you lose to your opponent, you must say that the opponent is better and learn from it."
"When we get better, we have more possession of the ball, and we did it in (against RB Leipzig). Unnecessary mistakes are more frustrating than a fiasco."
"We are better and dominated them, but we made minor mistakes and therefore couldn't control the game. I think we could have won 4-0 or 4-1."
"It always depends on how you lost, did you make a mistake, did you miss a good opportunity?"
