Jupp Heynckes on…

…the night after the Barcelona clash:
“Naturally, I've not slept much, but that's the European cup for you: you get to bed late, and falling asleep is tough. But I know the feeling well, and I think I'll probably manage an hour's lie down this afternoon."

…the key to Bayern's success:
“Overall, I think we're playing fantastic football this season. There's wonderful harmony in the team, and that's reflected out on the pitch. All the other essentials for playing football at such a high level these days is what we work on in training. And the decisive factor is perfecting our transition play. Barcelona had two chances yesterday, but otherwise I never thought they'd score."
