Badstuber: We've taken a good step forward

The squad put in some serious work in Wednesday training, focusing on speed in the build-up, escaping opposition pressing, slick passing and set plays. Three days ahead of the meeting with Wolfsburg, the FCB players are utterly determined to make amends for last Friday's defeat to Mönchengladbach, “because if we win the second game after Christmas. It'll all look a lot better again," said Mario Gomez.

“Now is the time for deeds to follow our good intentions," the striker continued. “We've trained really well this week. I'm certain we've taken a good step forward," added Holger Badstuber, “I'm very optimistic about the Wolfsburg match." Jupp Heynckes has laid special emphasis on defending as a team this week, “because we were sloppy in the last match," Badstuber conceded.
