RB Leipzig manager Jesse Marsch knew Bayern Munich would be a tough opponent, but did not come out of his squad’s 4-1 loss to the Rekordmeister thinking his team was dominated. In fact, Marsch thinks with a couple of different bounces, the final score would have been much closer.
“Bayern have many qualities and a super team. Especially in the final third. But we didn’t play badly, we gave a lot. We were brave and with a little more luck in the game, the game may end differently,” said Marsch as captured by Tz).
Midfielder Kevin Kampl had an unfortunate handball to give Bayern Munich its first goal (courtesy of a Robert Lewandowski penalty kick).
“I tried to get behind the ball and clear it. I’m sorry for the team,” Kampl said. “The worst thing that could happen would be to panic now. We are in a transition, in a learning phase. We won’t hang our heads. Our coach is doing a super job.”
