The Bayern camp was delighted at progressing to the last sixteen in the DFB Cup on Tuesday night. Despite ex-FCB striker Claudio Pizarro’s early goal for last year’s finalists Werder Bremen, the holders made the next round thanks to a Bastian Schweinsteiger brace. “We’re just pleased we’ve made the next round against extremely good opponents,” the match-winner said afterwards.
Reaction to Bayern v Werder
Louis van Gaal: “I think it’s fantastic. We have so many injured players, it’s basically incredible."
Bastian Schweinsteiger: “We’re just pleased we’ve made the next round against extremely good opponents. We didn’t play well in the period just after half-time, Bremen could certainly have scored a second, and we have to point the finger at ourselves for that. But I think we had some good chances too, and we were the better team in the first half. We’ve won, we’re through to the next round, and that’s what matters.“
