Reaction to Bayern v Mainz
Niko Kovac:"A compliment to the lads. We're pleased we're at the top again. We saw a lot of zest today, a whole lot of verve, very many good moves. Taken altogether it was a deserved win and the right margin of victory. Now we can work calmly and with focus in the two-week international break."
Thomas Müller:"We absolutely wanted to turn in a good display, we had ambitious plans after Wednesday. We wanted to take our chances and strike back. Dortmund did their homework yesterday evening. I'm glad we got into the game so well. We were clearly superior from the start. The way we played was just fun, we were flexible and exploited the space well. It was important to improve our goal difference in the last three matches. The table is looking better than in the first half of the season of course."
Sandro Schwarz (FSV Mainz coach):"We conceded an early goal. We had good moves up front from the 15th to the 25th or 30th minute. Taken altogether it wasn't enough. We only escorted them for long spells, without really tackling with bite. That's why we suffered the same fate as a few teams have done over the last few weeks. We conceded the goals too easily."
