Heynckes praises defeated Bochum

21 December 2011 14:40

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has admitted that the Bavarians were somewhat fortunate to beat Bochum 2-1 in Tuesday's DFB Pokal clash.

The Bundesliga table-toppers needed a late Arjen Robben strike to book their ticket for the quarter-finals of the German cup competition, and the 66-year-old had nothing but praise for their opponents.

"We won it luckily at the end against a Bochum team who fought well and played well," Heynckes told the press.

"All credit to (Bochum head coach) Andreas Bergmann's players, who I think were outstandingly well-prepared and built superbly well from the back."

"They made life very difficult for us, especially in the first half, and came at us time and again. I wasn’t happy with my team in the first half, even though we prepared well for the game."

"We looked much more up for it in the second half and we had Bochum on the ropes on a couple of occasions. It was a typical cup tie, where the underdogs rise above themselves."

Bayern's first match after the winter break is their Bundesliga visit to Borussia Monchengladbach on January 20.
