Bayern Munich managed to win their domestic league game against Köln 3-1 away from home despite being 1-0 down after the first 45 minutes and Jupp Heynckes insisted that the team showed a great character.

It was a difficult match to play after a bitter elimination from the Champions League by Real Madrid – but the team managed to put themselves together and won this game despite having the Bundesliga title already secured.

The experienced German coach spoke about his side’s last game as he said, according to fcbayern.com:

“We showed great character in the second half and the team showed what they’re made of. We dictated proceedings, created chances and took them. It was important to win this game and continue our run.”

“After the intensity of Tuesday’s game, it wasn’t easy to switch back to Bundesliga mode. Köln played well and made life difficult for us. We didn’t have any real chances.”
