Reaction from the Freiburg camp:Christian Streich (Sport-Club Freiburg head coach): "The team gave their all, they were brave throughout. It was clear that Bayern would get their chances, with their speed. It's a pity we didn't score a few minutes earlier. We couldn't have done more than we did today." Lucas Höler (SC Freiburg): "It was an extremely difficult game. We had a good game plan, and it actually worked out. We were in the game right until the final whistle. It wasn't to be today. But Bayern didn't not deserve the win." Christian Günter (SC Freiburg): "We wanted to keep our streak going, of course, but if it was ever going to be tough to keep it up, it'd have been going away to this place. This is the hardest test. But, we were able to keep up and we can build on that. There's still the return fixture."
