Cologne - Emotions were running high down in the Bundesliga dugouts on Matchday 10.
FC Bayern München 2-1 Borussia Dortmund
bundesliga.com rounds up what some of the men in charge made of the the weekend's heart-stopping action...
Pep Guardiola (Bayern): We're obviously delighted. We played superb football in the second half. Hats off to my team! Franck Ribery really helped us after coming on. The plan was for him to have a go at [Neven] Subotic and use his strength in the one-on-one situations. They man-marked Xabi Alonso in the first half, but we found a way round it, and I believe we'll always find a way round situations like that.
Jürgen Klopp (Dortmund): It was close. It was a good first half from us, but not a great second in which we buckled under the pressure. We deserved something for the first half, but not for the second. We've invested a lot, but got nothing in return, and that's the worry. But many congratulations to [Bayern] on a deserved win.
Markus Weinzierl (Augsburg): Congratulations to FC Schalke 04. The defeat hurts a lot because we gave it everything as a team. We've been punished for a mistake by Alexander Esswein, but Atsuto Uchida and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar did really well after we gave the ball away. We have to try and make more of our chances away from home. If we start doing that, then we will begin to pick up points on our travels.
Markus Gisdol (Hoffenheim): It doesn't feel good to lose, but Gladbach are a tough side. The first half was very even, then Borussia were fantastic after the break. We didn't have control in midfield and couldn't stop them on the counter. We made too many decisive mistakes and that's why we lost. To go behind here once is tough, but to fall behind again makes it really hard. The result won't knock us off our stride. Our performance was good in spite of the final score.
Dieter Hecking (Wolfsburg): The fans certainly won't have any regrets over making the journey. I witnessed a great game of football, which could have finished 8-5 in our favour because both teams really went for it. We were extremely effective and went 2-0 up just before half-time after VfB had spurned a couple of decent chances of their own. Once we got the third from a clinical counter, I knew the points were safe.
Roger Schmidt (Leverkusen): It's a game that'll be remembered for all the tackles that went flying in rather than Hakan Calhanoglu's return or the football. HSV's first attack led to the penalty from which they opened the scoring. We continued to have a go, but lacked penetration. We can now focus on our Champions League game against St. Petersburg.
Christian Streich (Freiburg): We knew the game would be extremely hard-fought. In an evenly-balanced encounter like this you need a little bit of luck to earn victory. We've handled the last few [winless] weeks well and stuck together as a team.
