Douglas Costa's sumptuous long-range effort was the touch of individual quality that separated the sides in FC Bayern's narrow 1-0 victory over Darmstadt on Sunday. "It was a difficult match," a relieved Carlo Ancelotti commented afterwards. Manuel Neuer felt that the German record champions did not have their best day. But the main thing is: "We've taken three crucial points."Reaction to Darmstadt v BayernCarlo Ancelotti:
"It was a difficult match, Darmstadt defended very well. We weren't quick enough in the first half, it was a bit better in the second. At the end of the day the most important thing is that we've won and remain at the top. I'm satisfied with that. But we can play better, faster. We'll give it everything and try to win against Leipzig on Wednesday."Manuel Neuer:
"We're relieved of course, we've taken three crucial points. Our display in the first half in particular wasn't typical of FC Bayern. We didn't have the pace and precision, we lacked all that today."
