Reaction to Bayern v Atlético

Carlo Ancelotti: "We played well over 90 minutes, controlled the match and dominated possession. We controlled Atlético's counter-attacks. This performance gives us a lot of confidence for the next matches. Now we have to wait for the draw. It's going to be a complicated Round of 16 for everybody."

Robert Lewandowski: "The victory doesn't have great significance in theory, but it's important for our confidence and mindset. I've been practicing free-kicks for two or three weeks. I'm very glad it worked in the match."

Mats Hummels: "We turned in a good display. We were very committed, very active."

Diego Simeone (Atlético coach): "We turned in a good display, especially in terms of defence. We had two chanced in the first 15 minutes before Bayern got stronger. Of course they were much better, particularly in the second half. Nevertheless we had the chance to salvage a draw until the final whistle."
