The German coach believes his side have what it takes to turn it around in the reverse fixture

Bayern Munich

coach Julian Nagelsmann claimed after last night's defeat against


that his team deserved to lose.

Bayern faced last season's Europa League champions in Spain last night and lost to their opponent with a single goal by

Arnaut Danjuma

. This was the first game after February 2019 in the Champions League that Bayern Munich failed to score and their record of 30 consecutive games was broken. While Nagelsmann considers Villarreal worthy of victory, he believes that his team can turn it around in the return match.

"We deserved to lose. We weren't good today. In the first half, we lacked power in defence and had too few chances," he told DAZN.

"The second half was a completely wild game. We gave up control because we were desperate to score.

"I think they could have scored a few more goals against us, but it was 1-0. We have not played a good game today in all aspects. 

"But it's only 1-0 and we have to show another side of us in the second leg; we know how to do it and I think we will."

Asked about the reason behind tactical failure, the German added:

"It's a typical match against a Spanish team, who have good players and make few mistakes. They have quality with the ball. 

"On the wings we were not intense and we lacked penetration; we did not do the diagonals well either. Nothing worked for us and we had few chances. We deserved to lose."
