Neuer: We had to up the ante in the second half
First in the group! Hansi Flick and Bayern can be satisfied after the 3-1 victory over Salzburg, but they also remained somewhat self-critical and are determined to keep their focus high. "We made the journey difficult for ourselves," said the Bayern coach, well aware of what had just happened. What else he had to say and what Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch had to say to David Alaba after the final whistle, you can read below.
Reaction to the game against Salzburg
The opponents' reaction:Jesse Marsch (RB Salzburg head coach): "It's a pity. We played well against Bayern in both games, but conceded far too many goals. We didn't make use of our chances. We were dangerous, had good moments in transition and great chances. But it's hard to defend against opponents with such great quality. We need Bayern now. I've asked David Alaba to win the next two Champions League matches too. He said they'd try." Zlatko Junuzovic (RB Salzburg captain): "Once again, a lot was possible in this game, particularly in terms of goalscoring opportunities. We were very compact and played well. Then we gave away a cheap goal, which could have been prevented. After that kind of performance there was definitely more in the game for us."
