Reaction to the match:
What the hosts said:Markus Gisdol (1. FC Köln head coach): "We should have taken a point. A few situations went against us. After our good start, they got a penalty. We then had some chances, but just before the interval a poitional error saw us go 2-0 down. The goal we got back came too late, unfortunately we didn't have any more chances to make it 2-2. The team were very disciplined in defence and were solid, so it feels odd \[to lose\]." Ismail Jakobs (1. FC Köln): "We got into the game well, Bayern had no chances - and then the penalty killed the game. Even after the penalty, we were really good in the game and gave very little away. But against Bayern it's very difficult to catch up."
