Bayern were made to work hard for victory, but a determined team display and some ruthless finishing saw the Reds run up a 2–0 success away to Olympique Marseille in the Champions League quarter-final first leg. “After you've thrown the door to the semi-finals wide-open, you have to offer huge compliments to the team," said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, “the team’s done very well." Jupp Heynckes spoke of “great composure," and Mario Gomez felt the win was “fully deserved," but Philipp Lahm issued a warning: “We're not through yet."
Reaction to Olympique Marseille v Bayern
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “I think we can be very satisfied. After you've won the first leg of a quarter-final in the Champions League 2–0 away from home and thrown the door to the semi-finals wide open, you have to offer huge compliments to the team. Right from the start, we went looking for the away goal we needed to set us up for the return. At the end of the day we've scored two and let in none, so the team’s done very well."
Jupp Heynckes: “We showed great composure today, which isn't easy here in Marseille, as other teams have found. It was important to keep a clean sheet, which stopped Marseille working up a head of steam. We did very well, with just a handful of exceptions. The only thing I have to complain about is that we picked up five yellow cards, which is far too many."
