Munich - It was another action-packed weekend in the Bundesliga, with a fair share of smiles and grimaces from those on the touchlines.

As always, bundesliga.com is on hand to round-up the coaches' thoughts on the latest round of German top-flight action...
Bayer 04 Leverkusen 1-2 FC Schalke 04Sami Hyypiä: I'm very happy with the way the team played today. It was a big improvement from Wednesday. If we play like this on Tuesday [against Paris Saint-Germain], then I'll be happy too. The team showed character and we were just unlucky today. I feel for the team.

Jens Keller: It was an extremely hard-fought match and it was a lucky win, but we'll take it. The team pulled together and I've got to pay tribute to Ralf Fährmann, who kept us in the game.

FC Bayern München 4-0 SC FreiburgPep Guardiola: It's always hard when the whole world is saying you've got to win. I'm very happy. It's unbelievable how focused the players are, no matter what happens. We not only played incredibly well, but also very seriously.

Christian Streich: I wanted us to match Bayern as much as possible and the lads gave it all they've got. For our future games, we've got to keep this mentality, even when we fall behind. Our players can learn a lot from players like Martinez and Dante.

Borussia Dortmund 4-0 Eintracht FrankfurtJürgen Klopp: We played well from the very first second. We kept winning back possession and scored the goals at the right times. It was a great game of football.

Armin Veh: It's a fair result, as is the margin of victory. We conceded too early. Our plan was to keep it 0-0 for as long as possible, but as soon as it was 2-0, it was all over.

FC Augsburg 0-1 1. FC NürnbergMarkus Weinzierl: I think we played a good game. Der Club made life difficult for us. We didn't quite play our best football in the first half, but this result will shake us up. We were on a great run, but now we start over.

Gertjan Verbeek: I wasn't entirely happy. We gave the ball away too cheaply at times, and then we only defended after scoring. We played too little football, but we fought like never before.

Hertha Berlin 1-2 VfL WolfsburgJos Luhukay: After tonight's performance, I would have expected to get at least a point. We managed to control Wolfsburg for 90 minutes, but what made the difference today was that we lacked the decisiveness to get that second goal. If we're honest, then we've got to say we're susceptible to set-pieces against top teams, but I'm not going to criticise my team.

Dieter Hecking: This was a perfect week for us. We found it hard going in the first half, both mentally and physically, and we were always a step too slow in our minds. We could have been further behind at the break, but after we made it 1-1, we got into the game better, although I would still have been happy with a point at that stage.

1. FSV Mainz 05 2-0 Hannover 96Thomas Tuchel: Hannover were the better, more active team for a long time, but after we took the lead, we improved and also had some gilt-edged chances. Ultimately, we deserved the win.

Tayfun Korkut: We started well and controlled the first half, but failed to get a goal. After conceding the first goal, the game was tipped in Mainz's favour. In the end, we had another few good chances, but didn't take them. Of course we're disappointed.


One of the best goals of the weekend came in Bremen, with new signing Ludovic Obraniak opening his account for his new club with a subline free-kick. Check out his goal, courtesy of the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel:
