Four youngsters were the centre of attention in FC Bayern's 4-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt: Lukas Mai, Franck Evina, Meritan Shabani and most of all Niklas Dorsch, who crowned his pro debut with a goal! "They were bold and had confidence," Sebastian Rudy said, praising the young talents for their convincing displays.

Reaction to Bayern v Frankfurt

Jupp Heynckes: "Special situations require special measures. I focused on Tuesday in terms of the line-up, so I called up four young talents. The lads dad a good job. They were nervous at the beginning, but then we took the lead. Today we had the efficiency we lacked on Wednesday. I'm very satisfied."

Sebastian Rudy: "Everyone saw the lads were very committed and had a grip on the match. They were bold and had confidence. That's exactly what we demanded of them. They weren't under pressure, they were unencumbered. Niklas Dorsch even scored the opener. I'm extremely glad for the four."

Sandro Wagner: "I think I was the oldest player today, it's a strange feeling. But it was fun."

Niko Kovac (Eintracht Frankfurt coach): "It didn't go as planned. Congratulations to Jupp and FC Bayern. We had hoped for much more because of Bayern's line-up. We failed to make the most of the two chances we had in the first half. If you get them in Munich you have to convert at least one of them. The quality Bayern had today was still enough to score goals. The scoreline is a little too high if you ask me, but it's deserved because my team were too naive."

Marco Russ (Eintracht Frankfurt): "We knew Bayern would rotate ahead of the match against Real and that we might take something away. But we were too sloppy in the first half. We created presentable chances in the second half. You have to take them, you don't get so many of them in Munich."
