Thomas Müller felt that Bayern Munich owed their defeat above all to their attacking performance with many missed opportunities against Navas.
You miss only one being and everything is depopulated! This phrase often used to regret the absence of the loved one, Bayern Munich could have appropriated it on Wednesday night during the quarter-final first leg against PSG.
Orphans of Lewandowski, the Bavarians fell in the face of the speed of the Parisians and Mbappé. And if many have pointed to the defensive passivity of Bayern, Thomas Muller questioned the Munich attack when explaining the defeat.
Author of the goal of the equalizer after Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting made the gap against his former team, the German striker deplored the many opportunities missed by Bayern Munich in a match of such a level.
Yes Lewandowski and Gnabry were absent Wednesday night but Bayern could and should have won according to him and not find themselves in a complex situation when entering the second leg.
“We should have scored a lot more goals, Muller told Sky Sports. Of course you can always discuss the goals conceded, but I think if it ends at 6-3 for us then nobody can complain. “
“It’s like that now, we didn’t do the right thing at home and we are going to have to eliminate this deficit now.”
Muller went on to stress that defensive mistakes weren’t the biggest problem for Bayern.
“If we had shown the killer instinct that often sets us apart, we would have seen a whole different game and erased those mistakes.”
“It’s also clear that you can never completely stop the Parisian offensive. … We have an offensive 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. “
Same story on the side of Hansi Flick who still praised the performance of his team despite the defeat.
“With the scoring chances we had, it could have been a different result, Flick told Sky. But we are happy with the way we played. The way we played football was great. This team never gives up. I congratulate them and we will do everything to qualify for the semi-finals. “
