Because Matthijs de Ligt caused a penalty, Bayern Munich tied on Saturday afternoon, but Julian Nagelsmann is still positive about the Dutchmans performance. The coach refuses to publicly lose De Ligt, who is disappointed himself.
Against VfB Stuttgart, Bayern was 2-1 ahead, but in the injury time De Ligt caused in an unfortunate way. As a result, it became 2-2. “It was a fair penalty,” says Nagelsmann at the press conference afterwards. “Matthijs played a good game, its a pity hes giving away a penalty. But yes, it has happened. We have to move on.”
De Ligt itself speaks of a difficult competition. “Im not happy. If you tie 2-2, thats not good. We didnt take advantage of our opportunities today. Stuttgart defended well and compactly. We didnt find the key to creating more opportunities. Well have to do better in the next game.”
The loss of points against Stuttgart was already the third draw in a row for Bayern, which can now lose the leading position in Germany. Mark Flekkens SC Freiburg will have the opportunity to go over Der Rekordmeister on Sunday.
