Robert Lewandowski Slams Bayern Munich’s Tactics After Liverpool Loss Sends Them Crashing Out Of Europe

Robert Lewandowski has hit out at Bayern Munich's tactics after they were beaten by Liverpool

Robert Lewandowski has criticised Bayern Munich’s tactics after they were sent crashing out of the Champions League at the hands of Liverpool on Wednesday evening.

The Polishstriker feels that Bayern approached the game too negatively while Jurgen Klopp’s men put three past them at the Allianz Arena. 

While Bayern did cancel out Sadio Mane’s first goal, they had no reply for Liverpool’s second and third, seeing them fail to make the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The reigning Bundesliga champions also struggled to score at Anfield in the first leg while Lewandowski believes their approach to the tie was too negative.

‘Of course, we knew it would be a tough game,’ Lewandowski told Viasport. ‘But in both games I think we played too defensive. We didn’t try to push forward to create situations – in the first game and today. 

‘We didn’t risk much, we were playing at home it was our game but that’s why I think Liverpool beat us. We were playing too deep, we didn’t take risks, I don’t know why. 

‘We tried to push Liverpool but offensively sometimes it was two against four players and that’s why we didn’t do much.

The Poland international was then prompted on his duel with Virgil van Dijk which he insisted he found tough as he was given no support from his team-mates. 

‘I have a lot of duels today, it was very difficult because I was alone,’ Lewandowski continued. ‘If you are alone against two or three good players it’s very difficult to play.’
