Ancelotti: Bayern Fighting Atleti For Top Spot In Group


Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti has charged his men to build on the 4-1 victory over PSV in the champions league.

Muller and Kimmich were on target for Bayern, before Narsingh pulled one back for the visitors before the break.
Lewandowski scored the third goal for the Bavarians, before Robben rounded off a fine night with a header.
The result snapped a run of three games without a win for Bayern and Ancelotti is hoping that his side can still catch Atletico Madrid, who continue to lead Group D following their away win at Rostov.
“We played well – that was what I expected,” the Italian told reporters after the match. “We showed a good reaction. We had some problems at the end of the first half, but otherwise it was good.
“After 30 minutes of playing very well, we allowed the game to open up. We weren’t at 100 per cent for a few moments and they scored a fantastic goal from a counterattack. After the third goal, though, everything was good.
“We need to be at our best in the next few games as well to keep us in the battle with Atletico Madrid for top spot.”
Ancelotti’s assessment of the game was echoed by Robben who received a standing ovation from both sets of supporters when he was substituted with three minutes to go.
“Our start to the match was really good,” he said. “We dominated our opponents and, as a consequence, we scored two goals [in the first half].
“Our movements without the ball were not good at times and PSV created some chances. But during the second half we did it better and we dominated the match again.”
