Van Gaal: If you miss your chances, you lose

Louis van Gaal did not have to think hard or long about the reasons for Bayern’s 2-0 defeat in Gelsenkirchen. “We created lots of chances, clear-cut chances. But the players have to put them away. I can’t score the goals myself,” said the FCB coach, describing his side’s failure to win the Veltins Arena clash as “quite unbelievable. Taking the game as a whole, there was only one team in it.”

Reaction to Schalke v Bayern:

Louis van Gaal: “It’s quite unbelievable. Taking the game as a whole, there was only one team in it. If we play that well, we have to win – but we’ve not won. We created lots of chances, clear-cut chances. But the players have to put them away. I can’t score the goals myself. But if you fail to score from so many chances, you’ve got to expect your opponents’ first shot to go in. The goals are always the most important factor in a match, and we’ve seen it again today. If you don’t score your goals, you lose.“
