Bayern were irresistible in the first half with goals from Franck Ribery and Luca Toni setting them on the way to victory, but a resurgent Rostock scored early in the second half and made Bayern work hard for their 2-1 win.
"We showed two faces," said Hitzfeld. "I am happy with the way we battled, but not with the way we played. Rostock suddenly changed completely and we stopped playing football."
