Robben was far from satisfied with the Bavarians' display at the Allianz Arena on Matchday 28, but Kevin Volland and Jannik Vestergaard, on the other hand, were both in celebratory mood at the final whistle. bundesliga.com rounds up the players' post-match thoughts...

Arjen Robben: We may already be champions but we have to play a lot better than we did today. Thiago's injury is a big blow for us. We knew Hoffenheim would be brave and aggressive against us. That didn't surprise us at all.

Claudio Pizarro: I think a draw is okay for us, considering our outstanding season so far. There were a lot of players on the pitch today that haven't played much in recent games, so it wasn't easy for us. A striker always grows in confidence when he scores and I'm hoping I'll have a few more opportunities in the coming matches.

Kevin Volland: To get a draw against such a strong team feels like a victory for us. We didn't have much time to recover for today's game, so it's great that we were able to put in such a battling display, run our socks off and get a draw.

Jannik Vestergaard: I had a chance that might have gone in on another day, which would have been even more amazing, but [Arjen] Robben also had a great chance at the end to make it 4-3 for Bayern. Getting a point here is an outstanding achievement. We worked really hard and we're delighted with the point.
