“We deserve lost. It was not enough,” Julian Nagelsmann said after the game. “We had little power in the first half. We had no good ball gains and no chances. The second half was totally wild because we absolutely wanted to play chances. But at some point it became Harakiri. We could have also gotten two. From Manuel new we had lucky enough. That was not what we imagine, “so the Munich coach continued.
Müller’s praise for Villarreal
Other reasons for the problems of his Bavaria Nagelsmann saw not least in the defensive. “Our defense was not so good and they have good footballers. We often did not do the last step, were not aggressive enough. But that is a typical Spanish team that can gamble. That’s the difference to some team, that may Otherwise can not free. “
Thomas Müller also dissatisfied after the game: “We have not been able to deliver the game we wanted. They were different facets: we did not have to do this power, not the variety of opportunities. After the break we have of course started with anger ” The national player made the Spaniards responsible for their own difficulties. “We also have to pay respect for the opponent. Here many teams did not have easy,” Müller played that Villarreal has been cross-competition since 27 November 2021 (1: 3 against the FC Barcelona) in domestic Estadio de la Ceramica is undefeated – Also against opponents like Real and Atletico Madrid or Juventus Turin.
Emery as Bavaria’s Kryptonit
Speaking of Series: The record series of 22 games without award defeat is over the 0: 1 from Wednesday. The previously last defeat in the Champions League had given it four and a half years ago in the group stage on 27 September 2017 with a 0: 3 at Paris St. Germain. Curios: Coach by PSG was at the time today’s Villarreal coach Unai Emery. Giovanni Lo Celso, who prepared the decisive goal of Arnaut Danjuma on Wednesday, was also replaced by the French just before the end.
Nobody wants to think about further defeats against Emery in front of the second leg. “We are experienced, we have a home game, it’s only the first half played. We have to snatch and hit us. For me, today it’s just a 1-0. It could have come much worse now. We have come worse now Allianz Arena in the back and need to bend it, “calls Müller – then, however, how Nagelsmann blends,” in all actions with more aggressiveness “.
