Reus: 'We were clinical'

Munich - Bundesliga champions FC Bayern München were made to look distinctly average at the hands of an inspired Borussia Dortmund outfit on Saturday evening.

bundesliga.com rounds up the post-match reaction to BVB's triumphant 3-0 success in the Bavarian capital...

Marco Reus: Playing like we did today is the only way to survive here in Munich. We matched them man for man and were clinical in front of goal. We knew before the game that Bayern would have plenty of possession. That's why it was important to get at them early - that way there's less of a way to go towards goal. Quick players like [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan are really helpful in that respect. Both wins this week have given us a massive lift for the DFB Cup semi-final [against VfL Wolfsburg].

Jonas Hofmann: As a team, we were exceptional. Defensively, we were superb. We really defended well from the first minute to the last. The key was that we really got at them. We didn't hide and defended aggressively. It really worked out for us.

Erik Durm: Bayern pressed for the first ten minutes, but we dealt with it well. After that, you could see that we were always dangerous. Defensively we were great. We were constantly in their faces, so they didn't quite know where to turn. We were superb today.

Philipp Lahm: We never got into the game and we were punished for that in the first half and then again straight away in the second period. Obviously it hurt and overall we simply made too many mistakes. We've been Bundesliga champions for a while now and of course all the players are aware of that. It's not always easy because of that. We still want to win every game. Maybe the fact that we played on Wednesday and Dortmund played on Tuesday was a factor as there were a lot of tired legs out there. It's not an excuse, but we were always just a little bit too slow today. Dortmund are a very good team and we saw that today.

Manuel Neuer: We were caught on a bad day today. We have to forget about it now and look forwards. We know what lies in wait at home against Kaiserslautern [in the DFB Cup semi-finals] and we want to make the final in Berlin. That's important. I'm not in any danger of missing out.
