Bayern enjoyed a successful dress rehearsal on Saturday. Coach Jupp Heynckes was "very satisfied" after the 3-0 victory away to Hannover 96: "It's always important to win in the league when the Champions League awaits you." Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said it was "really fun."

Reaction to Hannover v Bayern

Hasan Salihamidzic:"We turned in a very, very good display. It was really great today. Commanding, we played well. It was really fun to watch."

Jupp Heynckes:"We're very satisfied. Taken altogether we played excellent football. The team are top fit, no matter who's playing, regardless of the position. It's important that we keep up our rhythm and don't ease off and that we can still improve. It's always important to win in the league when the Champions League awaits you."

Niklas Süle:"We turned in a very, very decent performance from the first minute. You mustn't forget we're in for an incredibly important match on Wednesday, which is why the coach rotated the squad again. It was a very good performance today."

Andre Breitenreiter (Hannover 96 coach): "We tried to chase our opponents and press aggressively. We failed to take our two gilt-edged chances. We made it much too easy for them when they scored the opener. Bayern are highly efficient then, they're in outstanding form. There's no second-string team, they're outstanding from number 1 to number 30."
