"You have to be careful": Robben warns about Benfica

Bayern make late against Leverkusen The FC Bayern is after three games fully on course. But how strong is the record champion really? Many still see room for improvement – for example, coach Niko Kovac and Arjen Robben. The Dutchman looked ahead to the next opponent in the Champions League. Praise, but also criticism: Coach Niko Kovac and Arjen Robben. © imago Three games, three wins – FC Bayern marches ahead at the beginning of the new season. Again, probably think of all those who after years finally want tension in the fight for the German championship. The Bavarians see this naturally different. "At Bayern you always have to win every game, it was our claim, we came well into the season and we want to continue to play good football," says Niklas Süle. But what about the current performance really? Are Bayern again too strong for the competition or is this, see Leverkusen at 1: 3 on Saturday, too weak and not brave enough? For Uli Hoeneß, the answer is clear: "Our team is so strong and solid that it is such a bad luck as in the 6th minute (behind hand penalty, Red.) Stuck and the very sovereign plays home." The team was never in danger and, according to the president, played a great game. Robben detects drop in performance after the break But there are also differentiated, critical voices. The Bavarians certainly see room for improvement. Coach Niko Kovac would have wished "that we shoot 3: 1 earlier". So Leverkusen had at least theoretically until the 89th minute the chance of a point win. Arjen Robben praised first: "In the first half we worked very well against the ball." The but of the scorer to 2: 1. "In the second half we've slackened off, you have to be careful with bad passes, because teams like Benfica can be enormously dangerous in the transfer game, we have to work well against the ball, only then we can be successful," he said with a look at the champions League opener on Wednesday in Lisbon. Ultimately it was against Leverkusen probably a mixture of both: a passive, faulty opponent, and Munich, where the Gegenpressing works largely well, the opponent as the 3: 0 in Stuttgart virtually no opportunities, but offensively not always shine , The next answers after the true strength come from now on in the three-day rhythm. This but the record master loves known. Frank Linkesch
