0 36

Thomas Tuchel says Bayern will only need a miracle to qualify in the Champions League following their defeat in the first leg of the tournament against Manchester City.

Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel believes they face huge task against Manchester City in the Champions League in Germany.

The German club suffered defeat to Pep Guardiola City at the Etihad Stadium as goals from Gandogan, Silva and Haaland gave the English side an advantage ahead of the second leg.

Tuchel says it’ll take an incredible effort from everyone connected with the club to prevent a quarterfinal exit from the Champions League for the third season running.

“We need a miracle,” Tuchel said. “It would be a miracle actually.”

Tuchel added: “It’s hard, and it’s a huge mountain to climb. We need to believe. We believe in ourselves but we don’t want to be dreamers. Dreaming for me is close to sleeping and if we cannot do one thing, we cannot sleep for one second.

“We need to believe and make it happen by performance, team spirit and energy — we have ourselves and team, we have teammates, spectators who are ready to fight with us and then we need to have a realistic level.

“If you look at the top of the huge mountain, you may feel overwhelmed so we take it step by step, half by half, and the challenge is tough enough, we don’t need to make it tougher by looking at the size of the mountain. We will start the journey and be ready to go all the way.”
