Bayern Munich lost 3-2 in the first leg of the quarter finals of Champions league against PSG. Robert Lewandowski’s absence was a huge loss for the Bavarians as they failed to find the goal after creating a number of chances.
Thomas Muller and Eric-Choupo Moting scored the goals for the German side but they should have scored a lot more given the number of chances they created. Bayern had 31 attempts on goal, scoring 2 and Paris had just 6 attempts and managed to score 3.
Bayern need to be more clinical in front of goal in the second leg
“We need to score significantly more goals,” Muller told Sky Sports. “Of course, you can always discuss conceding goals, but I think if it ends 6-3 for us, then nobody can complain.” That’s the way it is now, we’ve laid the egg in our own nest. And now we have to chase the deficit, that’s for sure.“
Muller went on to emphasise that defensive mistakes were not the biggest problem for Bayern.
“We didn’t really allow that much,” he said. “If we showed the killer instinct that often distinguishes us, we would have seen a completely different game.
“It’s also clear that you can never completely shut down Paris’ offensively. We have an attacking approach, that’s why we score a lot of goals, that’s why we win a lot of games and today we missed a lot of big chances.”
However, Bayern coach Hansi Flick who was handed his first ever loss in the Champions League was pleased with his side’s overall performance.
“The opponent scored three goals from few chances and we had many chances,” said Flick. “We could have made it a good result, but the efficiency was not good. However, I am satisfied with the performance and the way.”
