On Wednesday evening, the Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen and FC Bayern Munich will play in the dfb-Pokal-Achtelfinal in the next round. Union Berlin, too, had to tremble for a long time. The voices.

Bayern Munich v TSG Hoffenheim 4-3

Hansi Flick (coach Bayern Munich): “Compliment to Hoffenheim. In the end, however, it’s time to move on – that’s why I’m happy and satisfied. We’ll be able to measure the fact that we’re going to swim again in the second half and we’ll analyse that. This is a wake-up call for us.”

Alfred Schreuder (coach TSG Hoffenheim): “Bayern deserved in the end. Great compliment, how FC Bayern is playing again the last few months, that has to do with my colleagues, who does a very, very good job. In the first half we lacked a bit of the courage to play out more chances with ball. In the second we did a lot better. Dafo I have to praise my team. We have more than 11 regular players.”

Bayer Leverkusen – VfB Stuttgart 2-1

Peter Bosz (coach Bayer Leverkusen): “Was it a coach who won the cup? The most important thing is that we move on. When I see the game, I can’t be satisfied. We didn’t play well in the first half, but it was also down to Stuttgart. In the second half we played better, absolutely not good, but better. But that was far too little.”

Pellegrino Matarazzo (coach VfB Stuttgart): “We saw a good cup game. A game that can also be in both directions. I’m proud of the guys. In the end, there is a lot of talk about the morale of the team that after the 0:2 we still make the connection and still have the chance at the end.”

SC Verl – Union Berlin 0:1

Guerino Capretti (Trainer SC Verl): ‘I can’t say much bad he’s my team. In tough situations we showed courage and often played well out. If you can progress against a Bundesliga player, you need a bit of Glock. That is what we lacked today. We’re going to win the cup. I will definitely not forget my 38th birthday.”

Urs Fischer (Trainer Union Berlin): “It was an important game for us. Victories do well, they give you. Because of the 90 minutes and the clearer chances on our side, the victory is deserved. My team found the right attitude today, the place was very difficult to play. I’m really happy that we qualified for the quarter-finals.”
