When asked about the fitness of the Brazilian, Tuchel was slightly evasive, instead crediting the team as a whole for playing through the pain barrier when required.
What Tuchel said: “It was clear we would suffer against this team and we managed to stay in the match because of an excellent goalkeeping performance, then we dug in and got better and better and created chances ourselves.
