Reaction to Mainz v Bayern:
Jupp Heynckes: “We knew it wouldn't be easy and we prepared very thoroughly. The team put our plan into action very well. That was a very important victory on the road to the German championship title.”
Thomas Müller: “We're pleased about winning a difficult away game in Mainz 3-0, but we know it was a hard job of work. In the first half Mainz were just what you expect of them at home: plenty of bite, very aggressive and as tricky as we had expected. Scoring the opening goal was definitely important. We were on hand when Mainz gave us the chance. We set off well into the second half, and that was basically that. It was a good day.”
