Munich - FC Bayern München head coach Pep Guardiola preferred to look at the positives after his side's low-key first half performance in the Matchday 32 win against SV Werder Bremen, while Borussia Dortmund boss Jürgen Klopp felt his men "showed how much they're enjoying their football" at Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
Find out what the coaches made of a weekend which saw four teams celebrate survival, and three others garner UEFA Champions League aspirations...
FC Bayern München 5-2 SV Werder BremenPep Guardiola (Bayern): This is the first time I'm a bit disappointed and sad about the first half - the fans didn't deserve that. The second half was better, and we won, which is good for Madrid and for our spirits. But that's going to be a totally different game. I have complete faith in my team and hope that we will do it together.
Robin Dutt (Bremen): My team were very self-confident coming into this game and we kept things very tight, scoring two nice goals on the break. Then Pep Guardiola changed things with Franck Ribery moved into the middle and with Philipp Lahm stretching the game out wide, and Bayern then built up a head of steam, even though I think the result flatters them a bit.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen 2-2 Borussia DortmundSascha Lewandowski (Leverkusen): We're working well as a team and the lads did a really good job today. It's not getting any easier, though. We’ve lost another important player with Stefan Kießling out injured, but we've vowed to give it all we've got in these last two games. I'm proud with what the team's achieved.
Jürgen Klopp (Dortmund): The team got a lot right and the goals we conceded were pretty unnecessary, the way we conceded them. The team showed how much they're enjoying their football, so that's okay.
FC Augsburg 3-1 Hamburger SVMarkus Weinzierl (FC Augsburg): This was a great stage for us to present ourselves on today, and we were able to confirm how good we've been this season. We showed passion again and we were the better team. We could have scored one or two more goals.
Mirko Slomka (Hamburg): We're not showing any goalscoring threat at all, no matter which striker has the ball. If Heiko Westermann;s our top goalscorer, then that's just not enough. It's no coincidence we're right down there. We're making tactical mistakes and the goals are falling in all directions. We expected to do far, far better than this. We've now got to fight on. I can understand our fans, who are extremely disappointed.
FC Schalke 04 0-1 Borussia MönchengladbachJens Keller (Schalke): We made a decent start to the game, but after we fell behind, we just couldn't get back into it. We couldn't do the simple things and we were errant with our passing, and we seemed afraid of our opponents. Our destiny's still in our own hands, though, and we will reach our goal.
Lucien Favre (Gladbach): Of course I'm happy - that was a great game from us. Now we have to beat Mainz, though, as that is our biggest challenge.
VfL Wolfsburg 2-2 SC FreiburgDieter Hecking (Wolfsburg): Freiburg have come on well and it's not easy to defend against them. We took an early lead and if we'd made it 2-0, then that would maybe have been that, but we got a bit unsettled after they equalised. Once we made it 2-1, we really can't then let them score again to make to 2-2 – that's not on. It's a fair draw. Of course we would have liked to have won the game and moved up to fourth.
Christian Streich (Freiburg) We conceded early on once again. Wolfsburg have improved a lot this season, but I've got to say something about how my team played their way back into the game – I'm a bit proud of what's happened in the last month. For us to compete with such strong opponents is really, really nice.
Hannover 96 0-0 VfB StuttgartTayfun Korkut (Hannover): We knew it was going to be a battle out there and it was a very tactical game. At the end of the day, I think I can live with a point, but until we're mathematically certain of staying up, we're not safe. We've just got to carry on working hard.
Huub Stevens (Stuttgart): When you play the way we have in an away game, then you've got to take more away with you. We've just got to live with it, though. Maybe we could have got more out of the game, but we needed to take more risks and we didn't want to. We now have two finals and we've got to play them like we played today – with passion.
