The Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has said that he is extremely happy with the performance of his team despite dropping two points in the recent Bundesliga match against Borussia Moenchengladbach. Bayern Munich have been the team to beat in the Bundesliga this season and they are on course to lifting the first league title after a gap of three years. They already have a nine-point advantage over the second-placed team Bayern Leverkusen. Hence, the manager Heynckes was not too worried with the 1-1 draw with Borussia Moenchengladbach during the weekend. This draw means that Bayern Munich have now dropped four points in the last three matches.
However, the performance of the team was good enough to suggest that they will be able to maintain their position at the top of the table in the second half of the season as well. After this weekend, the German league will be going on a break and will resume only in the third week of January. Bayern Munich have lost only one match so far this season, while they have scored a blistering 44 goals in the league. They have also conceded just seven goals in the 17 matches played so far. Many have predicted that they would win the title as early as in March.
“I am very happy, even though we only drew 1-1. We dictated the game for 90 minutes, especially in the second half. We played outstandingly well and did not give Borussia an opportunity to score. It was definitely not easy to defend against them, but I think that we deserved to win because of our second-half performance. Ter Stegen was the best player on the pitch, he was outstanding,” said the Bayern Munich manager. Pressure was on Heynckes to deliver the title this season and he seems to be delivering so far.
