FC Bayern Munich headed into the second leg down 3-2 against Paris Saint-Germain in their UEFA Champions League Quarterfinal. The Bavarian club did score, but the 1-0 result that they came away with wasn’t enough.
The 3-3 aggregate draw led to the capital club advancing to the semi-finals, with the French giants holding the away goal tiebreaker. After the match, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick spoke at a press conference, where Canal Supporters relayed the German tactician’s comments.
“I think it was in the first leg that we lost, with all the chances we didn’t take in. And the third goal we conceded was one too many; 2-2 would have been good,” Flick said. “Tonight, we missed the little bit of luck in the last minutes, especially when Leroy (Sané) was in a good position and he chose to pass instead of trying his luck.”
“Usually, the team has enormous quality in the last thirty meters, but Paris defended well, and, as on the first leg, we weren’t decisive enough; we missed the last “punch.”In both matches, I think we were the better team. Today we saw Paris’ offensive quality, but I must compliment my team, they were very focused, they tried everything. With a few critical players unavailable, we had some bad luck, but it has to be accepted and congratulate Paris and admit the result.”
