You can have 22 shots on goal (but only four on target) and had 62% possession and deserve to lose a game.

In any case, this is what Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann thinks after his team's defeat (1-0) on the lawn of Villarreal, in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, on Wednesday.

"It's a deserved defeat, we weren't good," said the German at a press conference.

In the first half we had too little energy, we didn't create chances and we gave up control.

An analysis shared by Thomas Müller​.

“We failed to deliver the match we wanted.

Offensively we didn't have the energy, we didn't create many chances, we lacked the explosiveness.

We accept this 1-0, if it had gone wrong, the score could have been higher.


Preparing for revenge

The Bavarians find themselves in an awkward position ahead of the second leg at the Allianz Arena.

But Bayern have accustomed us to being much more impressive at home, as in the previous round (7-1 victory against Salzburg).

Even if Müller warns: “We have seen that Villarreal is not an opponent against whom we can walk, contrary to what some media said.

We have to prepare for the second leg and take our revenge”.
