Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski was highly critical of his side’s approach to their Champions League tie with Liverpool.
The Bavarian giants won’t add to their previous five titles in the competition after they were dumped out by the Reds.
After the second leg meeting between both sides on Wednesday night, Lewandowski told BeIN Sports that Bayern paid dearly for their poor tactics against the Reds.
The Polish international skipper questioned the tactics employed by Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac in the first leg of their last 16 tie.
According to him, they should have attacked more in the first leg played at Anfield last month.
He further revealed that Bayern didn’t attack as much in the second leg.
Bayern Munich produced a rearguard performance in the first leg to secure a goalless draw but their inability to score an away goal against the Reds played a big part in the outcome of the tie.
The second leg didn’t go as planned for the Bavarian giants as it took Liverpool just 26 minutes to get an away goal.
Bayern got back into the tie briefly via a Joel Matip own goal thirteen minutes later before the Reds went on to score two second-half goals to seal a 3-1 aggregate win.
