Reactions to Borussia Dortmund 2-2 Bayern Munich
Speaking after the game, Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann said, “In the end I think the result is pretty fair. We had a lot of chances on the transition to kill the game off.
“Then we didn’t defend well and conceded. It hurts, of course, but it’s not undeserved. We had to defend better the situation just before the 2-2.
“It was an even game, but we had a few situations in the second half where we were closer to securing the win”
Goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer added, “It certainly was due to us and not to Borussia Dortmund. We should have closed the game earlier, we had the chances to do so.
“The final touch was missing. Mistakes happen in football, but there have been too many lately.”
