Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp bemoaned his team’s failure in front of goal in the 3-0 loss the BVB suffered at home to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday. “We had the better chances before Bayern scored the first goal, and also missed a big opportunity to make it 1-1. You have to be more clinical to gain reward from such a big game,” Klopp said after the game.
Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, hailed his defense for stopping what he believes is the world’s best counterattacking team. “We're happy to have beaten the best counterattacking side in the world,” the former Barcelona coach said. “[Jakub] Blaszczykowski, [Marco] Reus, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan are unstoppable when they're given space. We played well in the opening 15 minutes, but failed to match this level in the 30 minutes before the break. After the break, we were much better after we opened the scoring.”
