Van Gaal: Bayern almost clicking

BY foxsports • September 12, 2010

Louis van Gaal believes his Bayern Munich side are close to getting things right after watching them fail to win for the second game in a row.

After losing 2-0 in Kaiserslautern a fortnight ago, Bayern were held to a 0-0 draw by Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena and the Dutch coach bemoaned his side's misfortune.

"We created the most chances and the best one and we should have scored a goal," he said.

"You need quality, but also a bit of luck and we don't have any luck at the moment.

"It is always just because of one centimetre."

Bremen arrived in Munich with an injury crisis depriving them of several key players, including Germany international defender Per Mertesacker and former Bayern striker Claudio Pizarro.

However, their coach Thomas Schaaf was proud of his side's performance and says they deserved to come away from the Bavarian capital without being beaten for the fifth year in a row.

"Both teams could have gone ahead and had the chances to do so and we always looked to attack, which is what Bayern did also," he said.

"Therefore I think the result is a fair one."

Both sides remain in mid-table with four points from the first three games of the season.
