Both teams had a lot of chances,” said Bosz. “If you go 2-0 up and get more opportunities, you have to win the game. Unfortunately, we did not manage that. “We have not shown the football we can play, especially in playing the ball out from the back.”#SGEBVB 2-2— Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) October 21, 2017Although Bosz was understandably annoyed by his team’s capitulation, a patched-up defence that featured midfielder Julian Weigl and centre-back Marc Bartra in an unfamiliar role on the right still earned praise from the Dutchman.”We had to do without a lot of defenders,” Bosz added. “A big compliment to those who played.”Because I know that it is not easy to play as long as Neven [Subotic] or even for Jule [Weigl], who played for the first time in this position. The guys did well.”last_img
