The men from Munich were disappointed and self-critical after the 3-2 defeat away to Rostov. "We wanted to win here, but we didn't succeed," captain Philipp Lahm summarised. Carlo Ancelotti took issue with the mistakes made by his troops.

Reaction to Rostov v Bayern

Carlo Ancelotti: "We didn't underestimate Rostov. We didn't play well, that's why we lost. We made too many mistakes after the goal. It's very difficult for us at the moment."

Philipp Lahm: "We wanted to win here, but we didn't succeed. We're a little too careless at the moment. We have to be aware our opponents might score, and that mistakes will be punished. We're making too many of them at the moment. I don't know why that is, but we must get rid of it as fast as we can. The next tough opponents await on Saturday."

Jérôme Boateng: "The goals are coming too easily, we have to defend better as a team."
