The mood in the Bayern camp after the 5-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb was predictably upbeat.

Captain Philipp Lahm reckoned the men in red "had the game totally under control at all times."

Reaction to FCB v Dinamo

Pep Guardiola: "Congratulations to my team. It was a good performance. We stopped almost all their counter-attacks and we controlled the game well. Six points means we're heading in the right direction and my players are on good form. Tomorrow we're off to the Oktoberfest. After that we have time to think about Dortmund."

Philipp Lahm: "We were focused from the start and because we took our chances, it was over after 30 minutes, we have to be frank about that. We had the game totally under control at all times and prevented them getting at us on the break, which was an important factor."

Mario Götze: "We had plenty of variety in attack and made use of the space on offer. That's important when your opponents drop deep and pull nine or even ten men back. The early goals were just what we wanted. We can be satisfied and we've taken three important points."

Zoran Mamic (Dinamo Zagreb coach): "Bayern showed just how strong they are. They were superior in every respect and punished us brutally for our errors. The difference in quality between us and FC Bayern is enormous."
