Guardiola: "Our best game so far"

Munich - FC Bayern München's head coach Pep Guardiola was unsurprisingly delighted after his side's 4-0 away victory over FC Schalke 04, while his counterpart Jens Keller lamented individual mistakes on another weekend of fluctuating touchline emotions.

FC Schalke 04 0-4 FC Bayern München recaps what the coaches had to say after the Matchday 6's action.

Jens Keller (FC Schalke 04): Obviously we're disappointed, and especially at the fact it was such a heavy defeat. The first goal came from individual errors, and the second straight after was a bitter pill to swallow. It's tricky to come from two goals behind against one of the best teams in the world.

Pep Guardiola (FC Bayern München): That was our best game so far in the Bundesliga. We knew it would be a tough test because Schalke are one of the best sides in the country. The result is even more pleasing because of that, and after they had some good early chances, we completely dominated. It's an important step forward.

VfB Stuttgart 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt

Thomas Schneider (VfB Stuttgart): Today was a very even game all over the pitch, but it's disappointing to miss a last-minute penalty. I've seen plenty of improvement from my team and it was a shame we couldn't crown the fans' fantastic choreography with a victory.

Armin Veh (Eintracht Frankfurt): What you saw this afternoon was an intense and excellent Bundesliga game from both teams. We started well, but conceded an equaliser almost immediately from a set-piece, an area in which Stuttgart excelled today. We were a bit lucky at the end that the penalty didn't go in.

SC Freiburg 1-1 Hertha BSC Berlin

Christian Streich (SC Freiburg): We were well-organised and well-disciplined today. It's a shame we couldn't win, at the moment it seems like we're not quite managing to hit last season's heights.

Jos Luhukay (Hertha BSC Berlin): It's a good point to take away, especially considering the way the game went. Unfortunately, purely as a football fan, I didn't particularly enjoy today. Freiburg were well-disciplined and restricted us.

1. FC Nürnberg 1-1 Borussia Dortmund

Michael Wiesinger (1. FC Nürnberg): We fought for every single metre on the pitch, and I witnessed a fantastic performance from my players. I had the feeling that everyone was fighting for each other throughout. The draw was earned, and it could have been even more after Alexander Esswein's late chance.

Jürgen Klopp (Borussia Dortmund): It was an intense game with plenty of tough tackling. After the break we dropped off a touch and Nürnberg upped their game. To draw 1-1 isn't too bad, and we're not unhappy with the point. We'll keep going.

1. FSV Mainz 05 1-4 Bayer 04 Leverkusen

Thomas Tuchel (1. FSV Mainz 05): I actually thought we started quite well, but showed a lack of penetration in front of goal. For the first goal, if you don't win 50-50 challenges in midfield against Leverkusen then you'll struggle. We lost out on all such occasions today. We're disappointed to have lost three games in a row but looking forward to the chance to rectify that here on Tuesday against 1. FC Köln.

Sami Hyypiä (Bayer 04 Leverkusen): I think it was important after the [UEFA ] Champions League loss in midweek to bounce back here, and we put in a good performance. I'm pleased about the result and we took our chances well. It's an important win because it's never easy to take three points from Mainz.

Borussia Mönchengladbach 4-1 Eintracht Braunschweig

Lucien Favre (Borussia Mönchengladbach): It was difficult early on to find any openings because Braunschweig were very compact. We upped our tempo and looked better, and although the third goal was lucky, the result was deserved. To win 4-1 against Braunschweig isn't an easy result to achieve.

Torsten Lieberknecht (Eintracht Braunschweig): We had a good defensive structure in the first half but played too many long balls. After the break we opened up a bit more and looked better, and at one point it looked like we could come back. It wasn't to be, and the final result leaves a bit of a bitter taste.
