Bayern were made to fight all the way for an ultimately deserved 1-0 victory over Nürnberg, both coaches observed. “Nürnberg were well organised and defended well," said Jupp Heynckes, “but we were on top in the second half." FCN boss Dieter Hecking agreed: “At the end of the day, Bayern deserved to win.” FCB director of sport Christian Nerlinger was delighted afterwards: “It's all back in our own hands, in all three competitions."
Reaction to Nürnberg v Bayern
Jupp Heynckes: “Nürnberg were well organised and defended well. It was tough going for us in the first half, but after the break, and with our substitutions, we were on top and we made some good chances. Overall, it was hard fought by both teams and a deserved victory for Bayern."
Christian Nerlinger: “The summary of the weekend is this: it's all back in our own hands, in all three competitions. I have great faith in this team. They're showing they can cope with a match every three days and that they're physically in great shape. I'm looking forward to the run-in."
