Pep Guardiola: "We’ve been better than our opponents in every game."

Pep was very please following FC Bayern's win over CSKA.

Being drawn into the "group of death" in the UEFA Champions League is never that fun, and it seems like it's happened to Bayern Munich several times over the last few years. Of course, Bayern would be expected to get out of the group (and probably win it) regardless of who the opponents were.

So, when the final whistle blew to end the match against CSKA, you know that the club was pleased with taking 15 out of 18 points. The only three points that Bayern didn't take were away to Manchester City when they were forced to play for 70 minutes with only ten men.

Bayern controlled all six matches, keeping four clean sheets in the process. While last season's abrupt adjustment to Guardiola's style of "possession = best defense" saw FC Bayern collapse in the semifinals against Real Madrid, this team looks like they'll be ready to bring the European Cup back to Munich.

Here is Guardiola's comment to FCBayern.de.

"I'm very proud of the whole squad. We've been outstanding in the group phase. We've only lost one match and we've been better than our opponents in every game. We took it very seriously today and all my players did very well. Congratulations! We now need to recover in time for our remaining games."
