Nagelsmann: "A very good shot from Serge"
In the first Bundesliga home match under Julian Nagelsmann, FC Bayern picked up their first win. The reason for the 3-2 win against 1. FC Köln was not only the cheering of the fans, who were finally allowed back into the Allianz Arena, but also the coach's changes during the break. "We changed things at half-time, came out well and scored some nice goals," said a pleased Julian Nagelsmann. Köln rallied, but Nagelsmann could rely on his record-breaking offensive. "In the end, we had the one luckier moment and a very good finish from Serge," surmised the 34-year-old.
Reaction from the Bayern camp:
Reaction from the Köln camp:Steffen Baumgart: "Congratulations to Bayern. A deserved win because they scored one more goal. I think we weren't as brave as I'd hoped in the first half. Second half, when you're 2-0 down and come back like that, that's a good thing. The first goal was amazing. It's just annoying it was against us. Overall, I think we've taken a very good step and made good development. I'm satisfied with the performance. I think it's understandable I'm a little annoyed we didn't take anything away from the game." Mark Uth: "The intensity of our football with Steffen Baumgart is very high, we still have to get used to it. But we've already done very well. How we performed, maybe we deserved something. Bayern have the quality to still score the goals. We can be satisfied. It's a shame we didn't get a point. Now we look from week to week and keep working hard. If we keep up the intensity on the pitch, it can be a good season."
