Neuer: Bayern Are Still On The Front Foot

Best Goalkeepers Of 2015-16: Manuel Neuer

Manuel Neuer has denied claims that Juventus have the upper hand over Bayern after their draw on Tuesday.

Juventus were two goals down, before Dybala and Sturaro completed the comeback and the match ended in a draw.

Coach Pep Guardiola was angered by suggestions that Bayern wilted physically after such an authoritative start and, when asked whether Juve’s fightback will give them a mental edge at the Allianz Arena in three weeks’ time, Neuer responded: “I don’t know about that. I think it is very good that we scored two goals.”

Neuer did, however, admit that Bayern took their foot off the gas after Robben put them two goals to the good in the 55th minute.

“It is unfortunate for us that we did not reward ourselves with a win and go back home with a 2-0 result,” he added.

“Now everything is undecided of course, although it would have been like that with a 2-0 victory as well. We know that there was more for us to get out of that.

“We weren’t too sure after our 2-0. I’d rather say that, for example, we rushed a few of the chances. We did not stay calm and were not cool enough.

“Of course we did make mistakes which lead to the goals and we played against an opponent who makes the best out of our mistakes.”
