thumbnail Hello,

The Bavarians' trainer was full of praise for his players in the wake of their record-breaking second-leg victory over the Swiss champions in Europe's elite tournament

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has expressed his delight with his side's display in their 7-0 Champions League win over Basel on Tuesday evening.

The Bavarians were beaten 1-0 in the first leg of the round of 16 tie, but more than made up for it at the Allianz Arena, and the experienced trainer felt his players put in a perfect performance.

"All credit to my team. Overall, it was a perfect match. Today we played top football from the start to the finish. We went out and did what we set out to do: score an early goal," Heynckes said at the post-match press conference.

"After going a goal up, we were very smart, very calm, and very skilful. Our positioning and organisation were very good and we set up camp in their half time and time again. I was very pleased about that.

"The second and the third goal came at a psychologically good time. Basel were demoralised after that. We showed we wanted to wrap it up and progress to the quarter-finals."

Bayern joined Barcelona, AC Milan, APOEL Nicosia, Benfica and Olympique de Marseille in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with their win over Basel.
