Thiago and Gulacsi both frustrated at Bayern-Leipzig 0-0 draw

Bayern were not good enough to seal a win against RB Leipzig, says Thiago Alcantara, but Peter Gulacsi believes that it is his team that should have won.

Thiago Alcantara was not satisfied wtih byBayern Munich's display against RB Leipzig as they finished the game 0-0 at home, yet Peter Gulacsi believed it was the visitors who were worthy of a win.

By this draw, Bayern missed the chance to move four points ahead of Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga on Sunday, though they were fortunate enough not to lose the game to their opponents.

The poor performance of  Hansi Flick's men in the second half paved the way for Leipzig but at the end a 0-0 draw; thanks to the dreadful misses from Marcel Sabitzer and Timo Werner that saved the day for Bayern!

Although Bayern almost scored a goal through an awarded penalty, but a VAR check ruled out the goal. Peter Gulacsi's save won the day for Leipzig and denied Bayern a winner. Despite this, Thiago believed that it was their poor overall performance that denied them three points.

"We didn't play the game that we had to play. We were playing at home and we have to win all of the games which we play here," Thiago said.

"We played very well in the first half but then we let it go and didn't control the game.

"It's not about attack or defence, it's about the team and it's a team game. The energy was not enough to be dominant in the game, we were not in our best mood in the game, that's why we didn't enjoy it.

"The good thing is each game depends on us. That's a good thing. We work a lot to be in the place where we are right now but we have to improve a lot."

Meanwhile, Leipzig goalkeeper Gulacsi was left disappointed with his team's failure to snatch the win, even though the visitors' executed Julian Nagelsmann's gameplan.

"I think today the plan worked really well," the Hungary international said.

"We wanted to stay really compact against Bayern - they have such offensive quality, they have scored many goals, so we wanted to stay stable.

"But we also wanted to threaten and to use our speed up front, and in the second half, we could do that. Maybe a draw is a fair result but we played our best game so far here.

"It's not about the position in the league, it's more that we had the chance to beat the best team in Germany away from home. It's a step forward but I think there was more in the game [than a point]."
