First against second, the new champions against the old, the champions league finalists head-to-head: at the end of an eventful 90 min, Bayern battled to a 1–1 draw away to Dortmund, and were not unhappy with the result. “It was okay," said Manuel Neuer after FCB survived almost half an hour with 10 men. “It was a very intense match in which neither team gave an inch," remarked Jupp Heynckes..
Reaction to Dortmund v Bayern:
Jupp Heynckes: “After the events of recent weeks, it's not easy going back to the bread-and-butter. It was a very intense match in which neither team gave an inch. Beforehand, people were saying would be boring because so many Bayern regulars wouldn't be playing, but it certainly wasn't boring. I want to praise my team for an outstanding battling performance, especially when we move down to 10 men. So we deserved the draw.”
