Although Bayern Munich lost 3-0 to Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League tie at the Etihad Stadium tonight, Thomas Tuchel was not dissatisfied with his team’s performance:
“I don’t agree with the result at all,” the Bayern coach told Amazon Prime.
“We were punished in periods where we were the better team. We were just brutally punished today. I thought our performance was very good until the 2-0 goal. I don’t want to talk down the result, I thought it was a very good performance until the 70th minute.
“I think we deserved at least one goal and gave away one or two too many. I think our players lacked a bit of confidence and form. Obviously the result is bitter for us. I fell a little bit in love with my team today, the way they performed. Even if it sounds strange, it was a lot of fun,” said Tuchel.
Bayern must now focus on Saturday’s Bundesliga match against Hoffenheim before the return leg against Man City next week.
