Klinsmann happy with Bayern's response

Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann felt his side went some way to putting their heaviest home Bundesliga defeat in three decades behind them by booking their place in the third round of the DFB-Pokal.

Four days after disappointing their fans in the Allianz Arena with a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Werder Bremen, Klinsmann's side gave them something to cheer about on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Nurnberg.

"We wanted to make up for the hammering on Saturday because that was really bothering us," explained Klinsmann.

"We have managed it and are delighted to be standing in the next round of the cup.

"We could even have scored one or two goals more."

Goals from Miroslav Klose and Tim Borowski earned Bayern the honours in an all-Bavarian clash, and general manager Uli Hoeness is hoping for another derby in the next round.

"I would love to play against 1860 (Munich) here in the next round," he said.

Elsewhere on Wednesday, Wolfsburg demolished Oberneuland, the lowest ranked side remaining in the competition, 7-0.

Edin Dzeko helped himself to four goals, but coach Felix Magath was impressed with his side's all-round showing.

"The performance of the whole team was flawless," said Magath, who won the competition twice while in charge of Bayern Munich, the side who defeated them in the semi-finals last season.

"Last year we failed in the semis, and this year we want to get into the final," declared midfielder Ashkan Dejagah.

The draw for the third round will take place on Sunday, October 5.

Six sides from the second division will be in the hat, with 10 Bundesliga sides having survived the second round.

Eintracht Frankfurt, Cologne and Hoffenheim were all beaten by lower-league opposition.
