The German boss said:

"We deserved to win the math with the way we played.
"They are a top side - a counterattacking monster - so you have to be really focused, and because they don't want the ball too much you have to play around them and keep them busy.
"We did that really, really well. What a wonderful goal to win it, a nice corner [from Andy Robertson] and a sensational header from Bobby.
"It was not heated at all. I thought he was joking, but he wasn't. So that's it."
