"It was tough and we weren't on top of our game. Arjen Robben and David Alaba's quality was the big difference today. The result was important as we prepare to face Hamburg and Donetsk but we need to improve and recover our previous level. I have great faith in this team."
"Stuttgart pulled everyone back and defended so it was important to score just before half-time. It put us in a good position and made the second half a bit easier. It was time we took three points, that was very important to us today. Stuttgart were very defensive and used their wingers as full-backs. You have to go in search of the gaps. The magic moment always comes, we always make chances - but you have to take your chances. We scored from our first chance today and that's what you need in a game like that."
Huub Stevens (Stuttgart coach)
"I can be satisfied with my players' attitude. I have no criticism of my lads. The team battled away, so we shouldn't let our heads go down, we need to keep going just like that."
Christian Gentner (Stuttgart captain)
"Our plan worked well for the first 40 minutes, but then we lost concentration for an instant, and Bayern have too many good individuals for that. After their second they were never going to let us back into it."
