True that but hopefully we wil be at full strength next time and we're a force to reckon with at full strength, even for bayern at home.It is going to be tough now. In truth, we are no longer favorites to go through after tonight. As for the performance tonight, I thought we were defensively solid, but offensively it didn't work for us. And yet we had a few good chances. Bayern did put up a very good performance though, and I am not overjoyed that we are going to the Allianz with 0 goals in the bag.
Although they'll be less defensive than tonight, i think they'll still try to keep it very tight and try to snatch something late in the match.Man of the Match for me was just Fabinho with Hendo running him close. Munich came to get a draw and hoped for a win, and did a real good job of it. Saying that, we did have several chances of scoring, but we snatched at our goal chances. Over at the Allianz they will have to attack us more, which should give us plenty of scope round the back. We're still in with a shout because I saw nothing to really scare us tonight.
It was our first game in 10 days and maybe the front line were a bit rusty,It is going to be tough now. In truth, we are no longer favorites to go through after tonight.

These are great. Thanks for doing them. You’re not going Sunday, are you?My match report from upper Kenny stand:
Weird build up to this game. Didn’t secure my ticket till Sunday evening.
The match would have meant much more if we weren’t challenging for the league.
The chat was to keep a clean sheet without vvd. No one considered we might not score either. We seem to score at home every match... last game not to score was city in league - can’t remember the game before that we didn’t score.
And so to my seat. The chap next to me asked if I could swap with his wife who was in row behind. I said, did he want to see my wife before we did the swap. He laughed and saw the funny side.... but I duly gave my seat to his wife...
It was quiet in this stand - tucked in the corner at the top. Everyone seated.
We could hear the kop, see the flags and the players looked ready for it.
First half was just wasteful. So many chances, just couldn’t finish. Why were all those Bayern fans jumping up and down - maybe keep warm and entertained as their team were trash.
Second half more of the same. They wanted the draw and get out. We kept the clean sheet - without vvd, they never really threatened - we didn’t have the final ball or shot.
Quite drab end of it all - but all to play in return leg.
On to a much more significant match on Sunday.
Vvd will be back... and I give my motm to Fabinho. He’s tall, he’s red, he scores with his bald head....Fabinho.....
