Heynckes: They hardly had any chances at all

Postby FCBayernNews » Thu Jul 28, 2011 10:20 am

Champions League holders Barcelona overcame Bayern 2-0 in Wednesday evening's AUDI Cup 2011 final, but Munich boss Jupp Heynckes was not dissatisfied with his team. "Barcelona are in a class of their own, but they hardly created any chances at all," the 66-year-old reflected. Holger Badstuber felt the tournament had been a confidence-booster for the new season, and captain Philipp Lahm feels FCB have made progress: "We've taken a big step forward compared to last week."

Reaction to Bayern versus Barcelona

Jupp Heynckes: "Barcelona are in a class of their own, but we kept it really tight in defence for long spells, and they hardly created any chances at all. They had one and a half chances in the full 90 minutes. The opening goal just before half-time came at a very unfortunate time. We didn't see much of the ball, but we still had one or two clear-cut chances, and you have to take your chances against Barcelona. I'm very confident regarding the new season, but we still have a lot of hard work to do. We need to start doing things automatically, because certain things are still not together at the moment."

Bastian Schweinsteiger: "We had a chance or two in the first half. Barcelona are very strong on the ball, but they're not unbeatable. Obviously, neither team was at full strength, but it was a very good warm-up match. We weren't bad at all, because we always kept it tight, although we have to keep it even tighter in the future. If so, we're a very good team and we're unlikely to lose many games."

Philipp Lahm: "We're not yet where we want to be, but compared to last week, we've taken a big step forward. The team is fit. In terms of tactics, the coordination needs to improve."

Holger Badstuber: "It's a shame, we'd have liked to win. But it's been a terrific tournament, especially for the spectators. We can look ahead with confidence. It worked out well with myself alongside Jerome Boateng in central defence. We prevented them creating many chances, although Barcelona are obviously the best team in the world."

Better finishing and build up of play by Barca -- something we need work on ourselves and we might have scored one.

“The defence has to get used to playing with the goalkeeper”
