Dardai: 'Congratulations to Bayern on the title'

Cologne – With the stakes getting higher by the week, so too rises the tension on the touchlines with every point potentially meaning the difference between success and failure; staying up or going down.

FC Bayern München 1-0 Hertha Berlin rounds up the coaches' reactions to the Matchday 30 fixtures...
Pep Guardiola, Bayern: "After our Champions League game, we had to play with several youngsters today. We knew that it would be difficult. Now we'll see where we stand in the cup."

Pal Dardai, Hertha: "I can only congratulate Bayern on winning the Bundesliga title. Nico Schulz is a good lad and he's going to play in our next game too, even if he did miss the big chance with only Manuel Neuer to beat today. I’m proud of my team because they played very well in terms of their organisation and commitment."

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt

Jürgen Klopp, Dortmund: "It was pretty boring to start off with as we weren't able to do very much with the space we had. The 2-0 win is a good result though. We had a lot of chances after the break and we could have won by a much bigger margin. I'm satisfied overall. Having Sven Bender and Matthias Ginter as two holding midfielders worked very well. A lot of players performed very well today."

Thomas Schaaf, Frankfurt: "We started the game well and were in it up until the penalty. We didn't manage to create much up front and that was decisive in this game. We were lacking incision going forward and Dortmund's second goal showed us exactly what incision is all about."

Borussia M'gladbach 1-0 VfL Wolfsburg

Lucien Favre, Gladbach: "We deserved to win and played very well. We were clearly the better team and had chances to take the lead in the first half, but unfortunately we didn't make the most of them. We played patiently after the break and created a number of opportunities, which is why I always believed we would score. I'm very happy with the three points and can only congratulate my team."

Dieter Hecking, Wolfsburg: "Congratulations to Gladbach for a deserved win, although I had the feeling both teams would have been satisfied with a draw. Losing the game with virtually the last kick of the game is very hard to take, but that doesn't change the fact that the result was a fair one. It was a balanced match in the first half but in the second period we were chasing the ball more than we'd have liked to."

1. FC Köln 1-1 Bayer 04 Leverkusen

Peter Stöger, Köln: "We're very happy because we played a great game. You know how hard it is to get anything against Leverkusen when you've fallen behind, but the team gave it everything they've got, played football and created chances."

Roger Schmidt, Leverkusen: "It was a very hectic game – a real derby. We've picked up a very important and hard-fought point and this means we're definitely going to finish in the top four. We were also not worthy of more than a point today so that's why we accept it and are delighted to have got it."

1. FSV Mainz 05 2-0 FC Schalke 04

Martin Schmidt, Mainz: "We worked very well today. At the start of the match it was all about ensuring our survival for next season and if we'd lost then our situation would've become a lot more precarious. But now we can work in peace this week."

Roberto Di Matteo, Schalke: "We started really well and created some clear-cut chances in the first 20 minutes. We should've taken the lead but instead we conceded twice from set-pieces. That's obviously very annoying. We lost our way after that."

SC Paderborn 2-2 SV Werder Bremen

Andre Breitenreiter, Paderborn: "There should only have been one winner today: us. We weren't able to kill the game off but even with ten men we still had good chances to score."

Viktor Skripnik, Bremen: "We were lucky to get a point as we played pretty badly today. However, the fact that we fought back after going behind was great. We're happy with the point but overall I'm not satisfied with our performance."
