The Polish international scored two goals in the 3-3 Champions League thriller between Bayern Munich and Ajax but says he and his teammates can do more.

Robert Lewandowski said he is not happy with Bayern’s performance despite clinching the first spot in E with an epic draw in Amsterdam. Lewandowski closed the group stage of the UCL as the leading scorer with eight goals, leaving Lionel Messi in second place, but says his team has “more potential.”

“That was a very offensive game,” the Poland international said. “But what we showed in the possession game wasn’t good. That was missing,” said the Bayern Munich striker, according to FourFourTwo.

“Ajax had more ball possession. We still had a lot of opportunities, but we didn’t use them.

Kovac says Bayern is prepared for DFB-Pokal Semifinal

Bayern Munich is set to play against Werder Bremen tomorrow night with the only objective of qualifying to the DFB-Pokal Final.

“[Ajax goalkeeper Andre] Onana also did a great job. We have a lot more potential.”

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic also criticized the club’s performance, saying they completely gave the win away.

“The only positive thing is that we are first,” Salihamidzic said. “We didn’t make a good game, we gave the game away completely, it can’t be.”
