Josip Stanisic scored the stoppage-time equaliser as they recorded a 1-1 draw at Borussia Dortmund, whose Niclas Fullkrug had opened scoring on 81 minutes.

“We just don’t want to lose,” Alonso told DAZN.

“The goal was very emotional, celebrating with the fans was very nice and it means a lot to us all.

“We’re still waiting for our big party. Now we’ll recover a bit and then prepare well for Stuttgart [next Saturday], which will be a very exciting game.”

Leverkusen are already in the semifinal of the Europa League.
