FC Bayern have yet to be beaten after seven Bundesliga matches, but the players and officials were not satisfied after the 2-2 draw away to Eintracht Frankfurt. "We didn't play as we'd intended at all," said Thomas Müller, who found fault with the second equaliser in particular, when Bayern had men over in the penalty area. The captain too was self-critical.

Reaction to Frankfurt v Bayern

Carlo Ancelotti: "We didn't have a good attitude, that's why we weren't so strong. I hope it won't happen again. The second half was better. At the end of the day the 2-2 draw is a fair result."

Philipp Lahm: "It may have been an entertaining match for the crowd, it was too entertaining for us. If you believe that less than 100 percent will do, you risk losing tackles and control." 

Thomas Müller: "We didn't play as we'd intended at all. Frankfurt seized the initiative to some extent, and as a Bayern player you aren't used to that. I don't want to get used to it either. That we concede the equaliser when we had men over compared to Frankfurt tops it all. We're aware of the danger, but we're making too many mistakes as a team at the moment, with or without the ball. We have to work on this."

Timothy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt): "We could have got even more from the game considering our play today. At the end of the day one point is okay, we scored the equaliser even though we were a man down. It was just an incredible performance by the team."

Bastian Oczipka (Eintracht Frankfurt): "We had more chances than ever against Bayern today. We did well, we attacked very early and with courage to prevent them getting into the game. We stifled their efforts to a certain extent."
