Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt drew 0-0 today after Bayern Munich failed to score on any of their 38 shots.

Bayern Munich kept taking shot after shot while Eintracht Frankfurt failed to record a shot in the 1st half. Bayern Munich continued in their dominance in possession, Corner kicks and shots.

Bayern Munich next game is on Thursday in an away game against Bolton Wanderers in UEFA Cup action.


Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “It’s a shame we didn’t win today. We deserved to win, we had 38 shots to their five. If Toni had scored right at the start, Frankfurt’s defensive tactics would have failed straight away. They defended well, but we certainly deserved to win. Everyone comes here and defends, but we mustn’t be knocked out of our stride by that.“

Ottmar Hitzfeld: “There’ll come a home game once in a while where we don’t score. We were extremely profligate with our chances, we could have been in the lead after just a few seconds. We missed three or four good openings in the first half, but we were too imprecise today. It got more and more difficult as the match went on, because Frankfurt pulled nine men back and didn’t even go looking for a goal. We applied a lot of pressure, but today we were a little unlucky too, although I still thought we’d score if we remained patient. But Frankfurt did very well, and having Nikolov in goal hardly worked against them today.“

Friedhelm Funkel (Frankfurt coach): “Obviously I’m happy with a point, because normally we’re not in the same league as Bayern. As everyone knows, we were missing a few key players today. We were extremely good tactically and we deserved the point, although obviously it was all down to defending. You don’t have many options when you’re forced to pick players who haven’t featured for a long time. My players defended to the bets of their abilities today. All that mattered was coming away with a point. Nikolov had a tremendous match, and we rode our luck in certain situations.“

Oka Nikolov (Frankfurt keeper): “We defended with eleven men at times, but that’s hardly surprising given Bayern’s class. We got lucky too, but the only thing that counts is that we’ve earned a point.“
