The 1-0 defeat in Basel was “not optimal” for the return in three weeks’ time, Jupp Heynckes conceded. The boss lamented his side’s failure to exploit their early chances: “We ought to have taken a 1-0 lead, so we could have sat back and let them come at us.“ Despite the dismay, the FCB camp remained in fighting mood. “The result gives us every chance in the second leg,” declared club president Uli Hoeneß.
Reaction to Basel v Bayern:
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “It wasn’t a great performance in the 0-0 draw with Freiburg, and today we’ve even managed to lose 1-0. We have to try and turn the corner as fast as possible.”
