Bayern defeated bottom club Karlsruhe 1-0 on Saturday to move within a point of Bundesliga leaders Hertha Berlin. “The three points were what mattered,“ said Jürgen Klinsmann, not entirely happy with his team’s performance: “We’ve won the way Hertha have won seven or eight times this season, which is OK from time to time.“ As Uli Hoeneß put it: “These are the games you have to win if you want the title."
Reaction to Bayern v Karlsruhe:
Uli Hoeneß: “These are the games you have to win if your goal is to become champions, the kind of game which isn’t especially good to watch. Hertha BSC have won their last ten games exactly like that.“
Jürgen Klinsmann: “The three points were what mattered. Especially in the second half, it didn’t go the way we wanted it to. We were too hurried, KSC fought back and made chances. We failed to wrap it up in the first half. Nevertheless, we’re satisfied enough. It’s good we’re only a point behind Berlin. The players are allowed an occasional off day. We’ve won the way Hertha have won seven or eight times this season, and it’s OK from time to time.“
