Bayern Munich 2 - 1 Hansa Rostock

I was unable to watch the game, but have watched the highlights. Ze Robert made a beautiful pass to Franck for a goal. Bayern's second goal came from Luca Toni. Highlight video is below.

Post match reactions:
Ottmar Hitzfeld: "I’m very pleased. We’ve taken the three points, which is what we came here for. It would have been a lot easier for us if we hadn’t conceded the early goal after half-time. That made us a little nervous. Rostock were suddenly transformed, but we stopped playing football and just started hitting long balls. I’m happy with our fighting spirit but not with the football we played. We showed two sides to our character today: we played very well in the first half and should have been further ahead, but we lost our way after they pulled one back and our opponents grew in stature, although we prevented them creating anything clear-cut."

Mark van Bommel:
"We could have made life a lot easier for ourselves. Rostock’s goal gave them a real boost. We were totally in control before half-time, but we only muddled through the second half."

Willy Sagnol: "Playing good football was difficult on that pitch. But we’ve come away with the three points and that’s what counts. We should really have been three or four up at half-time."

Frank Pagelsdorf [Rostock coach]: "We were lucky not to be three or four down at half-time, but I have to give my team great credit for coming back from two down and playing some good football in the second half, which isn’t necessarily easy on this pitch. It’s a shame we weren’t rewarded for our second half display."
