At Bayern, the mood was rather depressed after the second Bundesliga 1-1 in a row – only Thomas Müller was in the mood to talk again after the game. When asked about the game, the offensive player sang a song of praise for the opponent.

“I’m a fan of Union Berlin, how they play as a team. They showed what we expected. The backdrop was what we could have expected. It hurts when you’re 1-0 down at Union. We came back straight away, but we used up our goal. You don’t get many situations here,” said Müller.

Müller saw a lot of material for the follow-up analysis with his Munich team: “We can certainly deal critically with some situations internally that we sometimes played too slowly or had a wrong positioning. If you play this Union block that works on you all the time , you get one to five situations where you have a realistic chance of a big chance. We had a couple of messes in the last pass.”
