Toni Kroos: We did well and we liked to play the ball out of defence, which is why we can go home happy with ourselves.

Arjen Robben: We did pretty well in the first half and then we had a bit more room in the second half, which we exploited well. We were very dangerous then and scored some good goals, because we've got the quality to do so.

Heiko Westermann: I think we held our own quite well so it's a shame - Bayern didn't even have a chance in the first half. We had three or four, yet they go and score a goal. With a performance like this, particularly in the first half, I'm not worried, but we needed to get it right a few weeks ago, not now.

Hakan Calhanoglu: We played well and we had one or two chances that we didn't take, but maybe against a side of the calibre of FC Bayern we just lacked a bit of luck. We've got to repeat this second half now against Mainz and win our final game of the season. Having the fans behind us from start to finish was a big boost to all of us. We can avoid relegation together.

Rene Adler: The way we played today is what matters most. Everybody needs a dream day to beat Bayern, but we can hold our heads high for the way we played in the first half. It was just frustrating that we fell behind to Bayern's first attack. We weren't able to sustain such a high rhythm against a side like Bayern for the full 90 minutes, but our fans were amazing. Our overall situation hasn't changed. We still have the hope and belief that we'll stay up.

Tomas Rincon: We started really well, but we couldn't take any of our chances and just one good ball was enough for Bayern to take the lead. That made it hard for us. But nothing's changed and now we've got to build on this first half when we go to Mainz.
