Reaction to Bayern v Basel

Uli Hoeneß: “That's the second time the team has shown what they're capable of. Watching that was really enjoyable. The last two games were football at a very high level."

Jupp Heynckes: “All credit to my team. With today's performance, they picked up seamlessly from last Saturday. During training this week, I sensed that the team were utterly determined to get through, we were totally focused. Today we played top football from the start to the finish. We went out and did what we set out to do: score an early goal. After going a goal up, we were very smart, very calm, and very skilful. Our positioning and organisation were very good and we set up camp in their half time and time again. I was very pleased about that. Overall, it was a perfect match. The second and third goals came at a psychologically good time. Basel were demoralised after that. We showed we wanted to wrap it up and progress to the quarter-finals."
