Niko Kovac reveals Bayern Munich’s weakness ahead of UCL clash against Liverpool

Niko Kovac, Bayern Munich boss has revealed the many problems the Bundesliga giants are facing ahead of the Champions League cracker against Liverpool next week, according to reports.

Bayern start on the back foot after Leon Goretzka’s own goal handed the home-side the lead.

But somehow Bayern managed to claim all match points with injured French winger…netting a brace.

Reacting after the final whistle, Kovac, who is preoccupied with their Champions League last-16 clash against Liverpool stressed the Bavarians were despite the win.

“We struggled to get into the game,” Kovac noted.

“I can’t remember conceding a goal so early, that was very annoying. “We knew that Augsburg wanted to play man against man and that they are a physical side. But we couldn’t organise the side and it took 35 minutes to settle it somehow.

“Every shot is a goal at the moment. When we have the ball, we don’t play like I expect the team to play.

Their second goal is a good example. The second ball with all that room in the back is something that can’t happen, Liverpool would punish us for that sort of mistake.

“Defensively, we need to be better working backwards, and that is something that will be going into my analysis,” Kovac stressed.
