Speaking in the mixed zone afterwards, Bayern captain Philipp Lahm analysed the match, reflected on Franck Ribery’s form and looked ahead to a busy week of midweek fixtures.

Question: Philipp Lahm, Thomas Müller just walked past and said “that was a big win”. How important was this victory in Wolfsburg?

Lahm: Obviously it was important, especially as we played in the Champions League during the week. After such a difficult match it wasn’t easy to play here; there are easier away games. We’ve got a decisive week coming up with a home fixture against Mainz on Wednesday and then der Klassiker in Dortmund. That’s why this win was especially important.
