VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach head coach Andre Schubert admitted his side “weren’t aggressive enough” as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of FC Bayern München.
Having failed to claim maximum points from their last two Bundesliga fixtures, Carlo Ancelotti’s side were determined to return to the winning trail at the Allianz Arena on Saturday night.
They came flying out of the traps and raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Arturo Vidal (16′) and Douglas Costa (31′). Gladbach improved after the break, but were ultimately unable to reduce the deficit as their winless run was extended to three games.
Schubert told the official Bundesliga website: “We weren’t good enough today and were unable to match them.
“Bayern dominated, especially in the first half. We weren’t aggressive enough. The second half was better, but Bayern also backed off.
“You have to play to your limit to get something from games against Bayern, and we weren’t able to do that today.”
Star forward Andre Hahn added: “It was very difficult for us today because we weren’t fresh enough.
“We didn’t get stuck into the challenges, and didn’t put pressure on the ball or the opposition. Once you go 1-0 or 2-0 down in Munich, it’s very tough.
“The second half was a lot better. Had we started like that, it definitely wouldn’t have ended 2-0.”
