Muller feels Bayern lacked an ‘absolute will to win' against RB Leipzig

The German top-flights top two sides clashed at the Allianz Arena but neither team managed to come out with the spoils in a goalless draw.  

Marcel Sabitzer and Timo Werner had the clearest chances of the game for the visitors while Peter Gulacsi pulled off an absolute stunner save to deny Leon Goretzka late on.

Thomas Muller, after the game, felt that the performance was not up to the mark and his side were not brave enough to warrant three points. 

Muller told Sky Sports Germany,“ There was a lot in it, but there was nothing in it at the same time. We missed making the game our game. The problem was that both the teams could live a little with the 0-0. From the 70th minute, neither team wanted to take the absolute risk.”

“We did not have this energy, this absolute will to win. We have a situation that we wanted somewhere. We will continue on our way and have it our hands.”

Bayern are currently leading the Bundesliga by one point, though Borussia Monchengladbach, who are at fourth, just four points behind, have a game in hand and Hansi Flick expects the title race to go down the wire. 

According to Flick, the first-half was better but then the team lost their focus and were not that serious about the game. 

He thought that a 0-0 scoreline was a deserving one and Flick acknowledged the fact that there are still 13 games to retain their title and become the Bundesliga champions again.

He also said that everyone wants a thrilling end in the competition and with the way the other teams have been this season, a strong race and a thrilling end is definitely on the cards. 

Thomas Muller has been above par this season, setting up 12 league goals and scoring five and being a 30-year-old experienced player, Flick and the other team-mates expect that the German will continue contributing in the club’s future.
