Despite picking up a win on Friday, Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac feels his side were not good enough defensively and if they play like that against Liverpool they will be punished:

“We struggled to get into the game.

“I can’t remember conceding a goal so early, that was very annoying.

“Every shot is a goal at the moment. When we have the ball, we don’t play like I expect the team to play.

“Their second goal is a good example. The second ball with all that room in the back is something that can’t happen, Liverpool would punish us for that sort of mistake.

“Defensively, we need to be better working backwards, and that is something that will be going into my analysis.”As quoted by the Metro.
