Reaction to FCB v TSG

'We deserved to win'

FC Bayern remained undefeated in their eighth competitive fixture in a row but the players and officals felt they should have left the pitch as winners after Saturday's top clash with TSG Hoffenheim. "A victory would have been deserved in view of the chances," Carlo Ancelotti said after the match. "But that's football: sometimes you just don't get the luck."

Reaction to Bayern v Hoffenheim

Carlo Ancelotti: "We struggled a little at the beginning and failed to shake off Hoffenheim's pressing. In the second half we played with more intensity, attitude and quality. A victory would have been deserved in view of the chances. But that's football, sometimes you just don't get the luck."

Mats Hummels: "Hoffenheim were very aggressive. We turned in a slightly lacklustre display, we have to admit that. It took us until the opener, then we found our way into the game. We had plenty of good chances in the second half, we hit the woodwork twice, and we should have closed out the game."

Julian Nagelsmann (Hoffenheim coach): "A victory for Bayern would have been absolutely okay due to the second half. They applied lots of pressure then, we hardly ever shook it off. We had to focus on defending, which isn't exactly what we like to do most. If you consider the context we're very glad we took a point."
