FC Bayern München had to come from behind to earn a draw against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Matchday 10 in a spirited affair in Munich.
bundesliga.com rounds up the reactions from the Allianz Arena...
Robert Lewandowski (Bayern forward): “We can’t always win every game and have a ten-point lead every season. That’s normal in football. This season it’s a bit different. We’ve played ten games and there’s still a lot of games to go this season. We know this season is going to be very interesting - there’s a lot of teams who are playing well and picking up points.”
Watch: Robert Lewandowski on his team's season this far:
Mats Hummels (Bayern defender): "Hoffenheim were very aggressive. We turned in a slightly lacklustre display, we have to admit that. It took us until the opener, then we found our way into the game. We had plenty of good chances in the second half, we hit the woodwork twice, and we should have closed out the game."
Carlo Ancelotti (Bayern coach): “I think we played well. We didn’t play so well in the first half, but the second half was really good. We played with a lot of intensity and created a lot of opportunities, so I’m happy. But I’m not happy with the result because I think we deserved to win.”
Andrej Kramaric (Hoffenheim forward): “this was a big test for us and I think that we showed we can play good football and we can go on to a good result at the end of the season. We had a plan to try to press high, which we did really well. We believed in ourselves, played as a team and we got a good result.”
Kerem Demirbay (Hoffenheim midfielder): “To score was great, but what really pleased me was to cap off a good counter, one that we’d earned as a team with good gegenpressing. We didn’t really reach the level we usually do throughout the whole game though, so there’s definitely room for improvement.
Julian Nagelsmann (Hoffenheim coach): "A victory for Bayern would have been absolutely okay due to the second half. They applied lots of pressure then, we hardly ever shook it off. We had to focus on defending, which isn't exactly what we like to do most. If you consider the context we're very glad we took a point."
