Schweinsteiger: Our effort paid off

Bastian Schweinsteiger commented that Bayern Munich’s effort in the opening exchanges with Barcelona was key to their 4-0 win.

The Bavarians hit the Spanish with a heavy defeat in the first leg of this Champions League semi-final.

“We tried to put them under pressure and managed to do so,” reflected Schweinsteiger afterwards.

“The opening exchanges were something of a learning experience as we've never played against a team like that before.

“It got easier as the game went on, though, and we put a lot of effort in.

“It's nice that it paid off.”
