"We gave it everything, we believed in it until the end," said Mats Hummels after the equaliser five minutes into added time in the 1-1 draw away to Hertha Berlin - and he was not the only Bayern man to speak of a "deserved" point.

Reaction to Hertha v Bayern

Carlo Ancelotti: "We knew it would be difficult here. Hertha played well in the first half, displaying lots of commitment. The second half was different, we increased the pressure. Our goal was deserved. Ultimately it's a fair result."

Philipp Lahm: "We went out there to win the match, you could see the team wanted it. We didn't play so badly, we found space between the lines. We often raced clear down the wings. We only lacked the final ball at times. But you saw the team believe in it until the end."

Thomas Müller: "We absolutely wanted it, upped the pace and pushed for the equaliser. We have the right attitude. The late equaliser shortly before the final whistle feels good, but we actually wanted to win."

Mats Hummels: "We gave it everything to secure this point, and we've deserved it. Hertha tried to slow down the game, so nobody can complain about the stoppage time. We just gave it everything, we believed in it until the end."

Pál Dárdai (Hertha coach): "The team turned in an outstanding display and had enough chances to make it two. Unfortunately the injury time was very long."

Sebastian Langkamp (Hertha): "We played the game of our lives today. We had Bayern on the brink of defeat. But it's probably an unwritten law that you can't win against Bayern."
