Goetze: We Weren't Clinical in Malaga

Borussia Dortmund forwards Mario Goetze and Robert Lewandowski each wasted two clear opportunities to open the scoring against Malaga at La Rosaleda on Wednesday night. In an interview with Bundesliga.com, 21-year-old Goetze said his team was disappointed to draw 0-0 in the first-leg of its UEFA Champions League Quarterfinal series with the team from Cost del Sol.

Asked if the result was positive for Dortmund, the 2011 Golden Boy winner said, “If you look at the way the game went, then definitely it’s not. We had many great opportunities and we just lacked a clinical finish. That applies to me more than anybody. I really could have helped the team a lot.”

He added that the chances Dortmund missed “weren’t just 50 percent chances, but real sitters which we’ve really got to take.” As for the two he missed, Goetze said, “Of course it’ll be going through my head for a while, but I can’t change it anymore. I’ve got another 90 minutes on Tuesday to put it right.”
