Reaction to Bayern v Arsenal

Heynckes: We lacked our normal composure

Bayern are through to the Champions League quarter-finals at Arsenal’s expense, but it was a close run thing, as the 3-1 victory in London three weeks ago proved just enough to compensate for a 2-0 home defeat on Wednesday. “Overall, we'll be very critical when we analyse the match,” fumed boss Jupp Heynckes after watching his side lose for the first time in 2013, “we've had a scare but we got away with it.”

Reaction to Bayern v Arsenal:

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “It was a tough match today, and we can count ourselves fortunate we scored enough goals in London. That's a warning shot across the bows for the Champions League.”

Jupp Heynckes: “Overall, we'll be very critical when we analyse the match. We hadn't planned on falling behind after three minutes. It played straight into our opponents’ hands. We improved after half-time and had better chances than Arsenal, but we didn't control the match and we weren't as composed as normal. We've had a scare but we got away with it. We've won nothing yet. As we've seen today, the Champions League is totally different. It's given all of us something to think about. You can take nothing for granted.”
