Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer believes they had the chances to end the game before the last explosive end to their 3-3 Champions League draw with Ajax

A Robert Lewandowski goal handed Bayern the lead in the first-half, which they held on to until 61st-minute when Dusan Tadic equalised for Ajax.

The Serbian forward then added another through a penalty before his Ajax team-mate Maximilian Wober and Bayern’s Thomas Muller were sent off.

Then, in the space of eight minutes, three goals came in with two coming from Bayern to hand them a temporary lead before Nicolas Tagliafico’s last-gasp equaliser for Ajax.

While the draw was enough to confirm Bayern as Group E winners, Neuer was left to rue the bitter end after conceding so late in the game.

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.

“Taken altogether it was a hard-fought and passionate match,” Neuer told the club website.

“Ajax are a good team, we saw that in the first match. We had our chances, especially in the first half, we should have scored a few more goals.

“It was very explosive towards the end. It was quite bitter to concede the last goal. The main thing is we’ve finished first, everything else is secondary at the moment.”

Bayern will next face Hannover 96 away on Saturday in the Bundesliga.
