Josep Guardiola, Bayern coach
I am very satisfied about our qualification – big compliments to my players. We are first in the group again.
Rafinha is a special player for me. Whenever he is playing he gives everything. He loves playing football. It is not a job for him, he is enjoying every single minute. He played well today. It is a pleasure to have him here in Munich.
My experience told me that here in Munich we needed to play with many attackers to score a lot of goals. That is a risk, but we normally create several chances. As long as we are able to control the game, we can play with five attacking players like we did tonight.
Marco Silva, Olympiacos coach
I want to start by saying that the result was not unexpected, especially against a very difficult team who – not just this season but for the last two years – have been the best in the world.
After 52 minutes we had a good chance when Ideye Brown broke through on goal. If he isn't brought down by Holger Badstuber, he scores and we have a chance to get back in the game. We certainly needed to do better with our chances.
What happened, happened. Most teams who come here to Munich lose. We are thinking about Arsenal now. We will try to prepare as well as possible. We are going to play at home – that could be a small yet important advantage. We will give our best to qualify.
