Robben: 'We should've killed the game off'

Munich - There were contrasting opinions in the mixed zone on Tuesday evening after the 1-1 draw between FC Bayern München and FC Schalke 04, with the hosts disappointed at dropping more points, while the visitors were happy to have something to show for their efforts.

FC Bayern München rounds up the best of the post-match reaction from the Allianz Arena...
: "It’s frustrating. If you go 1-0 in front then you need to kill the game off. We all know that [Benedikt] Höwedes is Schalke’s best player in the air, and he’s one of the best aerial players in the Bundesliga, so we shouldn’t leave him free. You should throw everything in front of him to stop him scoring. We played well today against an ultra-defensive team with five men at the back. It was hard - we had a man less and we still managed to control the game so the team deserves credit for that."

"Before today Choupo-Moting had always gone for the other corner when he'd taken a penalty - I think he'd gone to the right [from a goalkeeper's perspective] the last eight times. But it's always special match when you play against Bayern and he knows that I study penalty takers, which is why I thought he might try something different. That's why I went to my left."

: "We always want to win and despite having a men less we kept attacking and playing to get all three points. It's a shame we conceded a goal but I think a draw wasn't too bad in the end all things considered. We dominated the match really well but unfortunately then came the red card and the penalty. Nevertheless, we need to look at the positives and focus on our next game on Saturday."

: "We can be pretty happy with the way we played, even if we never like conceding straight away after scoring. I was a bit surprised that Schalke were so defensive despite having an extra man but that was their strategy and it was up to us to adapt to that. We did ok today and considering Wolfsburg drew, the fact that we also got a point isn't too bad."

: "Even though we were down to ten men we kept trying to play our own game and to keep attacking and pick up three points. I think we put in a good performance despite the sending off early on."

FC Schalke 04

: "I think you have to be satisfied with a point when you play against Bayern in Munich. We had an extra man for a long time today so maybe we should have been a bit bolder on occasion but overall I think we can definitely be happy with a point. We also missed a penalty, which would have put us in a more comfortable position if it had gone in. We dozed off at the corner they scored from but it was good we equalised quickly."

: "If you look at the game as a whole then we could have taken more from it. If we'd gone in front with my penalty the you never know how things would've turned out. But when you go behind in a match you're always happy to come away with a point. I wanted to send Neuer the wrong way - but it didn’t work unfortunately. Of course I should have struck it better but I was pretty sure he would dive the other way."

: "Our goalkeeping coach came up to me before half-time and said: 'Get warmed-up. Fabian [Giefer] might not be able to continue.' So I warmed up but I thought Fabi would be ok. However, when everyone came out for the second half the goalkeeping coach came up to me again and said: 'Get changed, you're going in goal.' I said 'Great, I'd love to.' That's my aim, to play in goal, so I'm happy to have played. You always respect your opponent but I wasn't overawed despite it being my debut."
