Philipp Wollscheid: 'Bielefeld battled well'

Philipp Wollscheid admits that Bielefeld made it tough for Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup.

Bayer Leverkusen defender Philipp Wollscheid has paid tribute to Bielefeld's performance in his side's 2-0 DFB Pokal win on Tuesday night.

The 2. Bundesliga side lasted more than an hour before Son Heung-Min finally broke the deadlock, but Wollscheid was pleased with the way that his team kept up their concentration.

"They fought right until the end, but we showed them that's not enough against a team like ours," quotes Wollscheid as saying.

Bayer return to league action on Saturday against Hannover.
