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.”
