Bayern looked set for a first defeat of the season with just five minutes to go in Thursday’s meeting with Red Star Belgrade, but Miroslav Klose and super sub Toni Kroos had other ideas. “We’d have been happy enough with a draw, but now we’re obviously delighted. We’ve put ourselves in a great position,” general manager Uli Hoeneß summarised.

<b>Reaction to Red Star Belgrade v Bayern:</b>

<b>Uli Hoeneß:</b> “It was a real fight out there tonight, especially on the unbelievably difficult pitch. Even the referee said he had trouble staying on his feet, so it was very tough and definitely a lottery. It was good to see the team coming from behind twice, but obviously it was a little bit lucky at the end. We’d have been happy enough with a draw, but now we’re obviously delighted. We’ve put ourselves in a great position. We need to win our home games, and then we’re home and dry.“

<b>Ottmar Hitzfeld:</b> “You could see we were having huge problems with the turf. We did consider lodging an appeal after we trained on the pitch yesterday. I’m just pleased we’ve basically come out of it in good shape. Today was all about desire. It wasn’t a day for the pretty stuff, all that mattered was battling away. By the end, I’d have been happy enough with a point.“

<b>Miroslav Klose:</b> “I want to praise the team for the way we kept coming back at them. We had to go to the limit, especially when you consider the conditions here. The turf wasn’t exactly perfect, and you feel it in your legs. We need to keep believing in ourselves.“

<b>Toni Kroos:</b> “It was vital to start the group with a win. It was hard work, the pitch was a catastrophe, but I think we made the best of the situation and coped well. We fought hard and put up stiff resistance, and I think we deserved to win at the end.“
