Klopp delighted with Dortmund turnaround

Jürgen Klopp believes the result was more important than the performance as Borussia Dortmund secured their first Group F victory at the expense of Olympiacos FC.

Jürgen Klopp, Dortmund coach
We had a little bit of luck today, but I think our win was absolutely deserved. Even if we missed the final pass we still deserved to win. We started brightly but lost momentum. I don't care how we performed; I just care about the result. In previous matches we played well but got no points. This time it was the other way around.

I will worry less about the pressure on the next game than I normally do. We're capable of beating great teams, so we will go to London to try to beat Arsenal. My team will be inspired by the great stadium and we shall see what happens.

Ernesto Valverde, Olympiacos coach
The fact we conceded so early was a blow that proved difficult to recover from. We deserved something out of the game, we didn't deserve to lose. However, Dortmund are a very strong team. In one of their first two attacks they managed to score what proved to be the winning goal.

My team played courageously and gave it their all; but we wasted numerous chances. Tonight's match was not too different to the one in Greece a fortnight ago. On that occasion, because we are stronger at home, we were able to win. Our aim now is two wins in our two remaining fixtures. We wanted a win today as well, but it was not our night.
