Freiburg - SC Freiburg's elated players put their 2-1 victory over FC Bayern München on Matchday 33 to old-fashioned hard work, but the Bavarians were left mystified as to how they slipped to such a meek defeat at the Schwarzwald-Stadion.

bundesliga.com rounds up the best of the post-match reaction after a result that could have huge implications in the tightest relegation battle in Bundesliga history...

SC Freiburg


Admir Mehmedi: "We did a lot right and displayed the sort of battling qualities you need to beat a team like Bayern. You've got to fight just to be able to compete against them."

Nils Petersen: "If you fight the way the team fought today and cover every blade of grass the way we did, even a team like Bayern won't enjoy playing against you."

Stefan Mitrovic: "It was a hard work but we worked as team and put in a great performance. We got a bit lucky at the end, but it’s really important for the team’s confidence. We were focused going into the game. Nobody thought we’d get a result today but we always believed we could get something."

FC Bayern München


Robert Lewandowski: "Everybody always expects that we will win every game, and we desperately wanted to win today. I would certainly also have liked to have scored a goal, but it's not easy when you play the way we played. We're not in good form at the moment and we want to - no, actually we have to win our last game at home. We really need to show that we are German champions and put our foot down once again, with all of our strength."

Jerome Boateng: "We weren't good enough in the second half and we need to take a long hard look at ourselves. We shouldn't be allowing that sort of thing to happen. We just have to play better football than we did to day and we owe our fans an apology for that."
