Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes was satisfied with his side's last Bundesliga performance of 2012, although less so with the result as Marc-Andre ter Stegen took the plaudits for Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Germany back-up upstaged number one Manuel Neuer with some fine saves to earn Gladbach a point in a 1-1 draw, but apart from the actual outcome of the game, Heynckes had no complaints.

"You can see from the fact that Ter Stegen was the best player on the field that we had a glut of chances," he said.

"We were up against a very defensive side, but we played a sensational game nonetheless, especially in the second half.

"Monchengladbach did not have even one good goalscoring opportunity.

"We had at least six or eight, but Ter Stegen made some fantastic saves, which is why I cannot criticise my team."

There was only praise for Ter Stegen, whose performance was in line with his coach's expectations.

"It's no surprise for me - I know Marc and he is a super goalkeeper, he has top potential and is still extremely young," he told Sky television.

"He was amazing. He made two or three really top saves."
