Munich - FC Bayern München's says that Bayern "will continue working in the same way" after collecting just one point from the six available to them since the Bundesliga restart.
Speaking exclusively to bundesliga.com after the league leaders' 1-1 draw with FC Schalke 04, the 21-year-old Spain left-sided specialist reflects on Tuesday's match, the Rückrunde so far and life in Germany's top flight...
bundesliga.com: Juan Bernat, what was your view of the game today?
Juan Bernat: We started well but the red card [against Jerome Boateng] made things harder for us and it was difficult to play with a man less. We knew Schalke are a team that defends very well and as a unit and doesn't leave many gaps. When you look at the game as a whole I don't think the fact we earned a point is too bad.
bundesliga.com: After losing against VfL Wolfsburg last Friday, what did you try to do differently today?
Bernat: Wolfsburg played very well in that game and I think practically everything came off for them - we didn't defend their counter-attacks very well and that's what led us to concede four goals and lose. But I don't think we've changed anything, the team is still working in the same way and now we need to focus on our next game against Stuttgart.
bundesliga.com: What are you expecting from that game?
Bernat: Teams always make life difficult for us when we're away from home but I really hope we'll be able to pick up our first win in 2015. We need it.
bundesliga.com: Bayern have got one point from a possible two so far this year. Why is that?
Bernat: We were really good in the first half of the season and didn't lose a single game in the Bundesliga. Maybe we haven't started the second half of the campaign quite as well but I think we'll get back into our stride soon enough.
bundesliga.com: You've now been in the Bundesliga for six months. How do you like it here?
Bernat: I feel good and I'm happy here. I've adapted pretty quickly to my new team and things are going well for me on a personal level.
